Venice
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+

Loved Venice. My husband called it the city of elegant decay. Yes it is crowded but we had no problems. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly. Best pizza in Italy.

Quaint old city, with lots of history. We took the cable car up the mountain amazing views of the walled city. Nice day walking around the old city. We took a cab back to the port set price of 10 euros. Good value.

Took the hop on hop off bus. Athens itself run down and tired but the tourist areas clean. A must to see the acropolis and Parthenon. Lots of dogs lazing in the sun theybare looked after by the city they are friendly and don't seem to be bothered by all the tourists.

We walked from the port to the Barzaar. Nice flat walk around the water front. However cabs are waiting at the port and are not expensive. The Barzaar is busy Nd large. The sellers are trying to get you to buy their goods. Lots of clothes, carpets knock off goods. They sell fresh Turkish delight by the kilo and it is very good. People are friendly and we enjoyed our day there.

Transport to the city centre from the port provided by the city at a few eros each way. Buses left every 10 minutes the who,e day. A nice city to wander around at your leisure. Found the most amazing old fashion candy shop. Great to take home as gifts.

Barcelona

Disembarked at Barcelona. Stayed one night. Took the hop on hop off bus to see the city and Gaudi,s church. Walked up and down las rambler's soaking up the atmosphere. Everyone warned us of the pick pockets so we were very wary and mindful however we did not have any problems and felt very safe and comfortable. Took a cab from the port to the hotel. Lots of great places to eat and shop. Try the sangria it is very good. Great open food market selling fresh fruits etc.
