Arriving in Salalah Port was fun for us as this was our first port ever on a Cruise. We had heard all sorts of people complaining about how expensive it was to go into the town. We had a quick chat with the Seabourn official while waiting for the shuttle to take you to the port gate. She said the problem is that they want your business for as long as possible, so they take advantage if you ask for one way travel. So if you say I want to go to the Al Husn Souk, they will say $80. If you say I want to go to the Souk, be there for 2 hours and come back to the port, they will say $80. So that is what we did. Make sure you make them specify Dollars or Pounds or whatever you are paying in. We agreed on Dollars and then when he returned us to the port the taxi driver asked for Euros. We said no we agreed on dollars and he never questioned it after that.
The souk was fun, we bought incense and frankincense and a burner.
We loved Sorrento even in the pouring rain. We just too the tender in and wandered our way through the streets buying a few things and enjoying great italian wine and having some fabulous food. We would not have traded this day for anything, except maybe a touch of sunshine.
Rome itself is a great historic place to see. It just so happened the weekend we were there, parliament was being sworn in and it was a long weekend, so the crowds were quite crazy. We did not get a chance to go in the Coliseum or get near the fountain of Trevi for lack of wanting to fight the crowds. It was beautiful though.
