Palma de Mallorca
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Beautiful but not lots of options. Free internet at McDonals 500 meters from ship (up some stairs).

Bandol Walking Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Not much on a Sunday plus only 30 minutes there.

Le Castellet and Varney Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Long bus ride. Bandol pretty but everything closed on Sunday we were there. Le Castellet was pretty and worth the ride up to it. Great view of the valley.

Very little in the downtown but free shuttle was nice. Free internet in library (biblio......) but you need passport, not driver license. Would have preferred two ays in Rome instead of only one in Rome and 1 in Olbia, Sardinia.

Easy cab ride to the wall. 6 Euro to get on it. 1.5 miles of pure beauty. Loved it. Shoppng is ho-hum.

Florence (Livorno)
Leaning Tower of Pisa Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Great to go up the tower. Costs but worth it. Watch for pick pockets as we had two try it on way back to our bus.

Rome (Civitavecchia)
Colosseum Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Much better to be inside the colosseum than to just ride by it.

St. Peter's Basilica Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Good trip just long ride from port.

Gondola Ride Rating: 2.0 out of 5+

Poor planning by captain of small tour boat. Couldn't get a parking place, then we had to walk 25 minutes to gondolas cause we were in wrong parking place. Didn't get the right gondolas because we were late. 2nd class instead.

Murano Island Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Long boat ride to a forced salesroom followed by too little time to shop any other stores.

St. George Island Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

Boring. Guide took us 150 feet from boat and then talked for 20 minutes and then back to boat. Couldn't hear half of what he said.
