Malta (Valletta)
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
used hop- hop off blue to visit Mdina again but local bus is less than 2 euros/ day. Two hop on services operate at about 15E each - have different frequencies

Really not advantageous as we were trapped in open top in Jan and fairly cold

Naples
Private Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Excellent. Comfortable new Minivan with 6 in it + driver and excellent English speaking guide. Could ask for changes etc and comfort breaks etc. 20 mins from ships to Pompeii, entrance free to EU over 65 (take passport). Our Guide was very good and officially registered. Then part of Amalfi close to Positano before going onto Sorrento Guaranteed to get you back to ship on time but it Archeological buffs - try combining Pompeii (taxi?) and the Archeological museum in Naples where most of it is kept


Sorrento Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
