I have developed an aversion to big cities since Honolulu, Nashville, Dublin and Tokyo appear similar. Still we took a HOHO (Hop on, Hop off) and saw the whole city with vocal historical commentary for about 1/2 the price of the Celebrity tour.
Met two other couples and we agreed to split the cost of transport (far cheaper and faster than Celebrity). D-Day tours were sold out so we came here. Beautiful French town, perfect weather for strolling through the city, its parks and having a fresh seafood lunch at one of the many bistros.
Gone is the old industrialized Liverpool (all the jobs are in the Orient - lol). the new Liverpool is modern yet has not forgotten their claim to fame - the Beatles. We walked to the Cathedral, the largest in the UK. The size was overpowering. Then we saw the "bomb" church whose roof was destroyed in the second world war. It was not repaired and today stood as a symbol of peace with beautiful gardens.
