We weren't actually berthed in Barcelona as in previous years. Barcelona is a great port but we were in Palamas which was about 1.5 hours away. Palamas was ok if you wanted to lay on a beach. If you went to Barcelona on a trip you would only end up having 4 hours maximum once you had allowed for the travelling there and back! We felt it wasn't worth the money to have such a short time in the city.
We docked at Calvi not Ajaccio. Tenders to port. Beautiful place and local tourist information has headsets to hire for a few euros to guide you around.
We arrived in the evening but have been before, spending the day in port. Lovely place to visit.
Very good guide. Taken to see the colosseum , Trevi fountain, Pantheon, St Peter's basilica and the Spanish steps.
Tenders to port. Lovely place to visit. We had spent a week in Sorrento a few years ago so can recommend the following places to visit. In my opinion, Herculaneum is a better place to visit than Pompeii as it is more intact. Visit the Foreigners Club in Sorrento for fantastic views and good food. The Amalfi Coast Drive is a wonderful trip too.
