City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Found it interesting but crowded on a busy Sunday. This tour included the transfer to the ship. The next time we saw our luggage was in our room.

Best of French Riviera Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Nice was nice; French riviera beaches were a surprising letdown from what we pictured...all pebbles with no sand!

We got soaked in rain sharing one umbrella, but loved it.

Florence (Livorno)
Florence Walking Tour Rating: Not Rated
Suddenly, knowing that Michalangelo, Machiavelli, Marconi, Gallileo, Marconi and others were buried in St Croces Church...they all seemed real! The squares and churches and statues are amazing.

City Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This was the highlight of our trip. After a 1.5 hour busride we toured the unbelievable Colliseum, had lunch as part of the tour in a 5 star hotel. toured the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and Basillica. Amazing places.

Amalfi Coast Rating: Not Rated
Beautiful scenic ride with a stop in Sorrento. Another good restaurant included.

For me though, Richardson's ice cream on cape Cod beats gelatto!

Ephesus Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Ephasus was amazing. Enjoyed it very much but there was nothing I would eat in the restaurant that was included. Wife liked the fish.This tour was a surprise provided by our cruise travel agent and run by Vacation Vignettes.

We also stopped at Rhodes and Mikonos, where we could walk on our own from the ship without a booked tour, and we felt that was sufficient. In 14 days we stopped at 11 ports!

Ephesus Museum Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
Ephasus was all we had to see at this port.(not the museum) We walked a mile through the remains of a city from 2000BC! (or was it 200? Anyway just facinating.

One last comment on excursions. I felt that all of the guides we had, though interesting, could have learned more facts by just reading on line about the places they took us. We could have done that too...before we left!
