Split Croatia. This is a tender Port and a bit chaotic to reach the shore. Then we took a bus tour by ship to Salona Roman ruins and the historic town of Trogir located on an island. We purchased a kilo of fresh maraschino cherries from the farmer market that we later ate in our room. At every port there was always a farmer market with lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and shellfish.
Naples, Italy: We took the tour to visit Naples archeological Museum where artifacts from Pompeii ruins were recovered and displayed. An excellent Museum to visit but the city of Naples is so crowded and it is hard to navigate by walking. Afterwards we had a delightful Neapolitan Pizza lunch with red wine or bottled water at an outdoor restaurant. Naples is where pizza was first invented.
Kotor Montenegro was another Tender Port; this was a much shorter tender. We took the Zarbdje and Kotor tour. We visited the beautiful village after travelling for 1 h through tunnels and mountains. Afterwards we toured the historic Kotor walled city. This was the only day of our entire trip that it actually rained when we were in Kotor for the day!
Venice. The ship docked on 10 AM on May 29. We purchased shuttle boat pass, went to Venice, saw several old historical churches and then came back to the ship. In the evening after the dinner we went back to Venice and saw the city in the evening and at night. The next morning at 8:30am, May 30 our grand cruise adventure ended as we left to take the 9 hour flight back home to Long Island.
