Why You Should Do an East Mediterranean Yacht Charter
The Mediterranean is one of the most exquisite culture-rich destinations in the world. It is a melting pot of unique cultures formed from different phases of history, handed-down beliefs, and up tracing of ancestors. Here, you can find a mix of different colours and flavors, and experience hospitality in varying degrees as you enter traditional coastal communities. What better way to discover these diverse cultures than with an East Mediterranean yacht charter?
Seek romance in Venice, sail down the famous “Pearl of the Adriatic” in Croatia, and enter the medieval bay front town of Kotor in Montenegro. Be hypnotised by the islands of the Cyclades in Greece, and be amazed by the ancient relics and monuments in Turkey. The Eastern Mediterranean region still has much more in store for those who love to experience the ocean and the historic wealth of the countries within its borders.
Spending a luxury yacht charter holiday in the East Mediterranean is best during the summer months. The fall season meanwhile, is ideal when you travel with children or if you love to swim and bathe under the sun when the water is still warm from summer. As for the winter and spring months, they are still a pleasant time to travel even with cooler temperatures. Yacht charters are slower in the winter than in the summer though.
Although summer is the high travel season in the Mediterranean region, it is also best to pick the months of May to June (during the spring season) or September to October (during the fall season). The temperature during these months is still pleasant, with brighter sunny days, and there are fewer crowds that will flock to tourist attractions. Also, all of the blooming spring flowers will certainly add a relaxing aura to your luxury yacht holiday!

While Venice is a beautiful destination whole year round, it is best to visit during the month of September where the weather is comfortably warm. This romantic place is famous as an entirely reclaimed city from 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. Venice got its romantic tag because of the existence of the “water taxi” where you can sail on the Grand Canal and slip through the Rialto Bridge, together with a musician on board a canoe. Aside from this, romantic hotels are also all over the place that showcase intimate dinners for lovers.
