Venice
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
While not technically a port of call for this cruise as we got onboard here, we did spend 3-4 days prior to the cruise in Venice. Interesting place. While St. Marks and the square are worth a look, get away from the touristy area surrounding them. Lots of interesting places to discover here.

Bari
City Tour Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
Granted it was on a Sunday, but absolutely nothing open other than the cathedral. Dirty. Lots of locals just "hanging out". Our tour guide seemed to be very apologetic about Bari..."but you should have seen it before everything was pillaged and moved to Naples". 6 of us on the trip and definitely the low point.

Achilleion Palace Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Tour was fine. Achilleion Palace and the guide were both interesting. Lots of shopping if that's your thing.

Santorini
Oia Wine Tasting Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We booked this tour independently trying to avoid a huge crowd of people. The tour guide was phenomenal. Ancient art and history degrees. Lived in one of the small villages. Very flexible. Akrotiri has recently reopened after the roof collapse in 2005 and was incredible. Visited Sigalas Estate winery and sampled tons (bought tons too). Oia is very picturesque with the white walls and blue roofs. Ended in Fira with a walk down to the docks with the donkeys. Great day. Favorie port of call for most of our group.

Ephesus Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Interesting tour. Hot day. Great food. The Turkish vendors very much believe in the hard sell.

Katakolon (Olympia)
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Tour of Olympia. We were awed by the sheer age of the sturctures and the history that we were able to recognize coming out of the region.
