Elba
Medici Fortresses Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

This was described as wine tasting in the Fortress...wine tasting was about 25% of the experience. I still enjoyed the rest of the tour, Napoleon's house, a church, and the town around the harbor, however it was alot of climbing steps and about 2 1/2 hours in before a bathroom break!

Corsica (Ajaccio)
Wine Tasting Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Described as countryside and winery, it should have been described as "a blood-curdling thrill ride in a large coach on impossibly steep, curvy, and narrow mountain roads." After 2 hours of that, I was ready for the wine tasting. The wine tasting was about 40 minutes of the 4 hour tour.

Sardinia
Port Rating: Not Rated

Docked fairly far out at the ferry terminal. A free shuttle to town was provided.

Pompeii Walking Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Only 2 hours at Pompeii, not nearly enough time to explore...would be better as a full day tour and skip the "bathroom stop" at the Cameo Factory - just use the facilities provided near the historic forum.




Positano Walking Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

This was a very nice guided ferry ride from Amalfi over to Positano with alot of free time to enjoy the town. Had lunch and people watched. A perfect day.
