Default Mediterranean Weather

Has anyone been to the Med. in October? We are leaving Oct. 20th & will visit Barcelona, Venice, Naples, Florence, Rome, Monte Carlo, Croatia, & Tunisia. Will it still be warm, or more "Fallish". Should I bring a light-weight blazer, twin-set, etc? Or go with more summer-like tops? Hope to plan my daytime wardrobe around 1-2 pair of pants that I can mix & match with various tops. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.

If you are sailing on Royal Caribbean you can log on to the website type in your user name and password, then look for your reservation #. Once your trip is pulled up scoll down to bottom right of site and it has the weather for every port that you will hit; you type in the month and the weather for that month will be shown. I do not know about other cruise lines, but it may be similar. hope this helps.

Cheers

It can vary by ports; avg normally low 50's to low 70's. The further east you go, the warmer. Tunisia can get to the low 90's. It may shower in some ports too. For us it was Rome. The seas should be calm though. The key is layers. Like you, I mixed and matched between black cargos and black slacks. I had short sleeves and halters to put under a sweater. Since we came out of SFO, we already had 1 fallish sweater. Basically the weather won't be too bad. You might start cool in the morning and then warm up by late morning. Just check the weather about a week or so before you go.....http://worldweather.wmo.int/

Yes, I have been to the Mediterranean in October and November -- several times, in fact.

>> In the daytime, temperatures generally tend to be in the 70's F (lower 20's C) -- great for sightseeing! -- and somewhat warmer (80's F/upper 20's C) around the Greek Isles and the middle east and around the Strait of Gibraltar. Of course, cooler weather is always possible so bring a spring/fall jacket just in case.

>> Evening temperatures tend to drop back to the lower 60's or upper 50's except in the warmer regions, so you probably will want a shawl or a jacket if you step out on the promenades.

I should also mention that summer formalwear (a white or pastel dinner jacket, etc.) generally is not proper in the Mediterranean at this time of year. If there's a formal evening, gents should go with a black dinner jacket, such as a tuxedo, instead.

Norm.
