Took a ferry over to Sorrento and had a wonderful full day in what can only be described as beautiful Island. A Lift that costs 1.80 euro takes you from the port up to the main street and shopping area. Very picturesque and the shops were all classy and not a charity shop to be seen. The place is very clean and colourful. I would love to go back to Sorrento and I will put it on my to do list.

Again you go from the port up to the main attractions either by cable car or by Donkey. Both cost a small amount but from a personal point of view, the cable car was more appealing than by donkey and certainly by foot. Walking was very dangerous as you use the same pathway as the donkeys. Santorina is very beautiful, lots of blue topped domes. The streets are full of shops, selling leather, hand made products and the shop owners are open to bartering. The only slight down side is, there is a queue for the cable car back to the ferries.

Historic City with the Acropolis a must to be seen, with suitable flat shoes a must to be worn. Again a wonderful feat of workmanship with reconstruction ongoing(work in progress)We took an open top bus to view the city but sadly and despite some great looking buildings with historic value, I couldn't see beyond the graffiti.

Not the best of beaches to visit as there are better beaches to visit and I suspect the way it was organised somebody somewhere is acquiring a bonus for utilising the facility. Princess cruises could do alot better with this one. On a positive note Mykonos is a very picture postcard area with its blue and white buildings, mostly sandy beaches and excellent shops, bars, restaurants and girls best friends(Jewellery Shops)A must for a revisit!!

The gateway to Olympia where the first games were held.Not a lot of time in the area and we didn't fancy a 45 minute train journey to Olympia. Katakolon is only a small place but pretty. Beaches were pebbly and the shop owners were slightly in your face touting for your custom.

Corfu is very beautiful, pretty, green and idyllic Island which is on my list to revisit. The beaches are mostly sandy although some are pebbly. Steeped in history and its just a positively clean and popular Island.

Split is a lovely clean city steeped in history with fantastic shops and building. Ideal for a weekend visit but not on my list to go return. People must be paid to recycle as you see Croatian residents going round checking street bins for plastic bottles and the like.
