Gibraltar
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
easy walk into town and to the cable car, much cheaper than taking the cruise excursion

Cannes
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
a bit disappointing due to the large amount of building work along the front, but the old town was quite nice

We took a local blue bus from the terminal to the bottom of la rambla for a few euros, then got the metro to the Sigrada familia which was fantastic. We then took the metro back to catalunya square and walked down la rambla back to the bus stop.

Quite nice - quite a walk from the terminal to the catherdral area but not too bad.

Lisbon
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
Very scruffy around docks and no tourist signage anywhere even in the city centre - difficult for an independent traveller. Interesting to see the boat sail under the 25th of April bridge with just 5m of clearance.
