Cannes
Monaco Walking Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
To see the Cathederal where Priness Grace is laid to rest and the changing of

the guards at the palace were my favorite parts of the tour.


Monte Carlo Walking Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
This one is for the active person. There are many steps to navigate and it is

not for the out of shape person. However, if you do take this tour you will be

rewarded with fantaqstic sights, including the casino whick now allows visitors

into the casino without the covercharge. Seeing the actual race course and

the actual starting slots and the start and finish line was a thrill also.

Florence (Livorno)
Port Rating: Not Rated
A walking tour of Florence including the Duomo was excellent and then going

to Pisa for the "Leaning Tower" was just fabulour especially because or our

much smaller group size. The group size enabled us to see more of the citys

up close and uncrowded.

Rome (Civitavecchia)
Sistine Chapel Rating: 5+ out of 5+
The Sistine Chapel WOW just sums it up. Just fantastic,


Vatican Museums Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Our guided tour of Rome including the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums

was the high point of our tour. We ordered our tickets ahead of time so that

we did not have to wait in the long lines for tickets and had more time to see

the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. The Trevi Fountain was also on our

tour and we had a scheduled stop there also and the Colosseum was fantastic.

Athens (Piraeus)
Port Rating: Not Rated
Our tour of Athens included the Acropolis, the Old Olympic Stadium. Just to have walked the steps that ancient Greek soldiers and poloticians walked over

2000 years ago was just amazing. What a feeling.......

Kusadasi
Ephesus Rating: 5+ out of 5+
The excavations at Ephesus were unbelievable and there is so much more to un-

earth that it is amazing. The high point were the Terrace Houses. These excavations literally bring you inside the houses to see the frescoes on the

walls and the mosaics on the floors. Just beautiful.

Naples
Amalfi Coast Rating: 5+ out of 5+
The Amalfi Coast, this drive is NOT for the faint of heart. This road makes

Lombard Street in San Fransisco took TAME. It is a white knuckle type of

drive, but it is still worth the trip. The scenery was fantastic and our

driver and guide were just great.


Pompeii Walking Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Entering through the SEA GATE and walking down the streets of the Agora and

the surrounding Temples and homes was breathtaking to say the least.
