Venice is just amazing! Took my breath away!
Try booking accommodation close to Piazzala Roma where the bus drops you from the airport. The people Mover ( EUR 1 p/p ) to the port terminal is also from here. We stayed at the Best Western Olimpia which is 5 min walk. Best decision ever!
We just got lost in Venice ( literally ) and walked around for HOURS! best way of seeing the ancient city

Bari is a small ( old ) city! beautiful and charming! We met with Bari bike and day tours at the port, we hopped onto a bike for 2 hours. What a great way of seeing the town. Our guide was great, showed us all the best places around and even spoiled us with a gelato. After a hour he left us and the bikes to do our own thing! we just drove around town and had a Corona on the square before we returned to the ship. This all for EUR20 p/p... Well worth it!

Small Greek island! not much to do but a must see. we walked the street and did some shopping. Decided not to do the trip to Olimpia ( not my kind of thing ) so we had a great lunch on the waterfront whilst enjoying the immaculate view with some local Greek beers and Greek salads!

There is no way to describe this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!
its absolutely stunning!

We did our own thing again... Walked the 800 steps to the top! Must say it was not my best idea but the queue for the cable car was endless and I did not have the heart to get onto one of those poor poor donkeys! Def take the cable car....

We hired a ATV four wheeler scooter and drove around all day long! what a great idea.. we saw everything! Visited Amoudi Bay and Qia which is about 20 minutes away! We had lunch in Satorini where we had the most amazing view of the ship and the smaller islands! We also shopped around in Fira, great shops and walkways close to the cable car...

We took the cable car down ( 30 min waiting queue ) and returned to the ship with no problem..

MOST amazing view of the whole trip!
Took a taxi to the old town for EUR 10 for the 2 of us. Walked around town ( beautiful ) and had gelato whilst watching the tourists.
We then took the cable car up to the top of the mountain for 94Kuna... be prepared for the most amazing sight you will ever see! Have coffee at the restaurant on the top and just take in the sights!
We returned to the ship soon afterwards!
