Oct 20th Constellation French Rivera sailing. Thoughts on the weather?

Recommended Posts

We were looking at this cruise out of Rome, Stopping in Livorno, Portofino, Nice, Provence, Sete, Vallencia, Mallorca, and Barcelona.  We know that the weather will be cooler, but we are going to see sites, not to be on the beach.  However, should we be worried about it being too cold or rainy?  Thanks for the advice.

We have cruised this area at exactly this time of year a couple of times. The weather has been a mix of mainly sunshine (but cooler in the shade) and one or two wet days...We took lightweight waterproof kagools with us and managed fine. Pompeii was our worst holiday day ever for rain but we still enjoyed our tour. If the weather isn’t good there are lots of inside museums, churches etc to explore...It can be useful to have a Plan A and a Plan B depending on the weather.


To put things in perspective we did a Greek Islands and Italy cruise on Eclipse last September and had more unsettled weather than we have had at the end of October, so you never know!


On ship I did need a lightweight fleece on the balcony at night. 


Hope you have a fantastic cruise.

I have cruised in this region often at that time of year and mostly it is 'shorts and t-shirt' weather, with the occasional drizzle.


It's pleasantly warm in the sun, cooler (but not cold) in the shade. You'll be fine with light waterproofs as noted above.
