Enjoy Early Mornings on your MedSailors Adventure

Now, this isn’t to say that you shouldn’t enjoy the frankly spectacular Italian nightlife, but we do recommend emerging from your cabin fairly early to really make the most of your time in this Mediterranean paradise. On your early-morning escapades, you’ll be first in line to snap up some fresh market produce and just-out-of-the-oven pastries. Also, you already know that Italian coffee is pretty unbeatable and, to be honest, that’s worth getting up early for alone!

Assimilate into Italian Life

The Italian lifestyle is probably as close to perfect as is humanly possible, which is why we recommend adopting the daily habits of locals as much as possible. This means dining with locals and choosing local specialty dishes to really get a taste for how the Italians do it. Honestly, you probably won’t want to leave.

Learn Some Italian

Not only is Italian a truly beautiful language, you’ll find that every local will be extremely appreciative that you have put in the effort to learn a few simple words and phrases. Ciao!

Don’t Over-Plan

Doing some research in advance and noting down a few places you’d really like to visit is always a good idea, but we don’t recommend creating a rigid schedule with no flexibility. The beauty of the Italian Islands is that although you can never quite be certain what you’ll find around the next corner or down the next narrow street, it’s probably going to be pretty epic!

Stop to Soak in the Atmosphere When Sailing in Italy

With so much to see and do it’s not always easy to stop and really take in your surroundings. Take a few moments to pause throughout your day to admire the stunning architecture and spectacular natural landscapes: we promise that you won’t regret it!
