Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+
Not a lot to see but since I had been before I am perhaps being unkind. Would have preferred Villefranche.

Livorno actually. Did a 'do it yourself' to Pisa.

Beautiful exit (dark coming in) and lovely town but you really need to do the climb to the Fortress to get the full value.

Loved every minute of it despite the crowds. No doubt in high season it would not be so enjoyable.

Amazing old town. Taking the excursion would not have allowed enough time to really explore the town and walk the entire circuit of the walls.

Rome (Civitavecchia)
Rome on Your Own Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
If going again would do my own thing. The local guide in Rome was poor and moved much too quickly for the group and did not pay enough attention resulting in a couple going missing at the end and missing the coach back. Gained very little from her commentary but enjoyed the few hours we had to ourselves.

Spanish Steps Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Just a lot of steps covered in hundreds of people.

St. Peter's Basilica Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Amazingly beautiful esp. the Michelangelo sculptures.

St. Peter's Square Rating: Not Rated
Massive crowds for the weekly (Wednesday) appearance of the Pope which we had to pass on in order to see round the city.

Trevi Fountain Rating: Not Rated
Impressive but also oppressive due to the thousands of tourists (to which I suppose we contributed).

Pompeii Walking Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Excellent guide who was really informative. Without her we would simply have been looking at ruins. Could have done without the visit to the factory beforehand. An extra half hour in Pompeii would have been much better,
