Very nice city center and the tender boats did take us directly there. It was a beautiful walk around and then we went swimming on the public beach in the Med.
Actually port 4 was Livorn but can't find it on the list and port 5 was Genoa.
Wasn't off the boat in Livorno but went for a walk in Genoa. It was a bit off-putting how heavy the walk is but it is a beatiful city and the new harbour area has been very nicely modernized.
Interesting history lesson considering the present situation at Gibraltar. Nice history. Not for the faint hearted to get up on the roads. They are narrow.
Really the best way of experiencing the rock. Get a tour taxi from the city center. It gives you the opportunity to see all the sights without the specific walking around on the narrow roads that would happen if you took the cable car. It was a nice experience to see the monkeys and they were not at all aggresive despite all the warnings thereof. One actually jumped on to the shoulder to my daughter.
Beautiful limestone caves where you can spend a lot of time. And the monkeys are all around.
We went around all the sights in Lisbon including the Alfama, monument to the discoveries, revolutionary park (eduardo 7) etc,etc.
Fantastic way of spending a half day and the taxi driver knew the Alfama quarters as his own pocket. Was very good value for money.
PS: The roads in the Alfama quarter are so narrow that the big tours can't enter.
We just went a shore and took a swim in the med. This due to several reasons. we have been to Rome before. It is 1,5 Hours journey each way and it was 34 degrees hot.
The beach of Civitavecchia is not easy to get into the water in but the water was the cleanest we saw during the trip.
