Rome (Civitavecchia)
Port Rating: Not Rated

We stayed in the port as we had been to Rome may times. Good shops and prices, very interesting market at the top of town. Nice promenade and places to have an ice cream or drink.

Florence (Livorno)
Accademia Museum Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We wanted to see the David of course. Lines were very lengthy when we visited. We were glad we had asked our driver to pre-book them. There was a separate line if you had pre booked. There are lots of exhibits mainly religious paintings and sculptures.




Florence & Pisa Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Both cities are beautiful with lots to see - too much for a short visit so you have to prioritise! Our driver pointed out the main things. If you can go up the tower it is amazing, and stay to hear the acoustics in the baptistry. They sing every half hour so you can hear the quality of the sound. You need to buy tickets at the booth rather than at the entrances to the buildings so find it first - it will save you lots of walking.

Genoa
Port Rating: Not Rated

A fabulous day with guide Umberto Cattani. We got to Portofino by road before all the boats arrived from Sta Marherita. The coaches cant use the road it is too narrow - but minibuses can! A beautiful place to linger. The whole coast is attractive and the hill have lovely villages with great atmoshere. Make sure you try Ligurian specialities and wines

Gibraltar
Rock of Gibraltar Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

An introduction to the rock. Lots to see and experience. We were lucky and the day was clear and views great. Watch for the apes - some are cute but they do scratch and bite and they can take cameras phones jewellery etc.
