Took a 9,yes9,Euro RETURN train journey which took just 1hr 15mins.

Jumped on a Red hop-on bus for E14.

Roma is my favorite Euro City..but it wasn't built in a day!

Nightmare trying to locate train station near St Peters..be warned!

The Station is called St PEDRO...not St PetRo..U need a bus to get there!

Stayed on ship as have been here so many times.

LUCCA is my recommendation...better than Florence or Pisa.Very easy to reach there by train(change @ Pisa)

Wonderful fascinating city.

Take the train from ALCANTERA(2min walk friom mship) to Estoril=25min.

Always have a ticket...snappers always on Lis trains.

Then walk along Promenade for half-hour to Cascais..outstanding!
