Heavily accented guides and poor speaker system made it d8ifficult to hear. Tour guide was going to leave a couple behind. Hated this tour.

Barcelona
Port Rating: Not Rated
Started at the Maritime museum after a stroll on the lovely waterfront, then along Las Ramblas, stopping for tapas at an outdoor cafe along the way. Bought some tasty treats at the Market. Wonderful visit for just a hint of the what the city has to offer.

Marseille
Le Castellet and Varney Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Actual port was Toulon. Our afternoon tour was 4 hours, with an excellent clear spoken guide. La Castellet is a medieval village with wonderful little shops with a wide range of products from the Provence region. Enjoyed great local Rose wine. Varney was also lovely seaside resort area, full of touristy shops and eateries, that was obviously a popular local resort area. Very nice. Overall, we saw two contrasting sites, with adequate time to enjoy both.

Uffizi Museum Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Reliable ticket service. Booked tickets direct. Uffizi Guided tours sell out very early.

We used the ship's transfer to get from port Livorno to Florence. Cost was reasonable and ride was smooth. Unfortunately, the nature of Florentine traffic caused thie time available in Florence to be dissapointingly short. I had to sacrifice the Accademia to make the bus back to the ship. If I had to do it over again, I would book the transfer independently to squeeze a litlle more time, or look harder at public transportation options.

Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
How can you not like Rome. So much to see and do. We spent 3 days following our cruise. Highly recommend that you book transportation from Civitavecchia to Rome. We decided to take the train, which is great is you travel light and/or are young and strong enough to deal with the luggage. We did not even book a cab from cruise terminal to train station and had to scramble. It all worked out, but was nerve racking and troublesome. We also got fleeced by taxi from Termini to our hotel. Just book a good transfer to your destination.
