This city is beautiful. La's Ram bas was a fun experience which gave us a good opportunity to people watch,and eat some of the best food of our trip. We took a double Decker bus tour (entire day ticket), which provided ear phones and a general tour of city highlights with stops if you wanted to visit that space. The bus ran the entire day and into the evening. Well worth the money of 27 euros each.
Used share a tour, for less than half the cruise line wanted to charge. The tour was magnificent. Please do yourself a favor and review this option for yourselves. I can't say enough good things about this.
Boring, skip it. Its very small and certainly not worth the time in this city.
City Tour Rating: Not Rated

Temple of Olympian Zeus Rating:
We visited the Olympic village, Parthenon and other sites. tour guide was not happy to be there and one person broke their arm walking on the slippery marble. People will push past you on that climb to the Parthenon. I was amazed at the history I was looking at being in this place- but honestly, my son and I both were glad to leave.
This was our disembarkation port. Once your off the ship- make sure you know where your going. Investigate before you leave home. Luckily, we were staying at a hotel on St. Marc's Square and this was a stop of the water bus and marked on signs. Most of our new ship friends were lost as to how to get to their respective hotels. There are no taxis waiting just several different ramps which go to ticket offices...with long lines..confusing. Beautiful city, Doge's palace was incredible and the history amazing. Warning: you can get special tours online only for the palace, but you must do this months in advance. We wanted to tour the secret passage ways of the palace- but were not able to because of the advance ticket purchase required.
