Rome (Civitavecchia)
City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Had a good guide who pointed out all the places of interest

Sistine Chapel Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

First time visit and was overawed, just a pity it was so crowded

Trevi Fountain Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Too busy to get near

Vatican Museums Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Just too much to see in too short a time but well worth the visit. Very crowded.

Pompeii Walking Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We had a superb knowledgeable guide who kept us interested all the time. I have been before but found it just as fascinating.

Ephesus Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We were taken to 'Mary's House' which was not what I had expected it was very small. Then we walked through the ruins of Ephesus which were fantastic very different from Pompeii in every respect.

House of the Virgin Mary Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

In our brochure it was called 'Mary's House' and was not what I had expected.
Outside there was a long wall covered in prayers and wishes written on pieces of paper and pinned on to each other,

Malta (Valletta)
Port Rating: Not Rated

As we have been to Malta several times before we took an hour long nostalgic taxi trip. It cost us 22 Euros but we wouldn't have been able to do it on our own.
There were plenty of taxis waiting outside the port gates to take people to the centre of Valetta.
