Venice
Murano Island Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Wasn't overly impressed by this tour, it took a long time to get there by boat and was just a destination that was designed to sell you their glass. Venice other than this tour was easily our favourite location and we would return there in a heart beat. It is a city that is unequaled in it's history and beauty.

Naples
Amalfi Coast Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This by far was one of the best excursions we have ever done and was well worth the dollars spent. The guide was very knowledgeable and the scenery was breathtaking! This tour included a hot pasta meal with a vase of wine and it also included a stop in 'Sorrento.'

Rome (Civitavecchia)
Colosseum Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
This tour was interesting and the value was there. We were taken by a walking guide to the 'Colosseum' as well as the 'Trevi Fountain, the 'Forum' and 'St.Peter's' square.

Florence (Livorno)
Florence & Pisa Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Enjoyed this tour and did the requisite tourist shtick of holding up the 'Pisa' for a photo-op. Absolutely loved 'Florence' and all the Churches. Almost filled the memory card in the camera here.

Cannes
Monaco & Monte Carlo Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Another tour that was well worth the dollars spent. Be sure to pay the extra euros to tour the 'Palace' in Monaco as it's as close as most people will ever get to such rampant opulence. Monte Carlo and it's casino was also very interesting.

Barcelona
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Barcelona and it's people are picturesque and we just walked and enjoyed the passing parade. We did walk to the ''Sagret Church'' which is a constant work in progress and seems to have been put together by trial and error.

Madeira (Funchal)
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We just walked off the Ruby and it took us about 20 minutes to get to the center of town and this town is one that seemed easy to get around. Within a short time we were negotiating the streets and alleys like locals and we actually spent the bulk of our souvenir dollars here. Would absolutely consider coming back here!

''Casablanca'' was not shown on the list provided, but the town itself is not one you would want to visit without a ''face mask and rubber gloves.'' It was far and away the dirtiest place we have ever had the misfortune to see. We did however take a tour to ''Rabat'' which was very interesting and a real contrast to Casablanca, as it was spotless by comparison. We stopped at the Palace and toured some ancient sites that were still being dug and got some great pics.
