Gibraltar

OK but would have preferred longer time seeing Gibraltar without the tea

Florence (Livorno)
Piazza Della Signoria Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Knowledgeable guide.
Although recommended for guests with mobility problems this was still quite difficult due to the uneven paths
$50 to ride in a carriage, well worth it for my elderly parents, without which they would not have been able to seen the beautiful buildings.

Rome (Civitavecchia)
St. Peter's Square Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Panoramic Rome.
Excellent guide. This tour took in Colosseum, Forum, St Peters, V E monument, Borghese Gardens, Castel St Angelo, Circo Maximo to name just a few.
Only 45 mins in St Peters Square so not long to do much more than take a few photos and absorb the atmosphere.
Visit to leather factory en route - in my opinion the time could have been better spent. All the items were very expensive. Would have preferred a few photo stops instead.

Genoa
Port Rating: Not Rated

they are obviously trying to build up the port area with shops, cafes etc. but, at the moment, it is not worth getting off the ship for.

Villefranche
Area Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

After being dropped off we took a local bus into Monte Carlo and enjoyed drinks at the Cafe Paris people watching. Very expensive but had to be done!

Shuttle to centre via Bellum is $20 bought on board

Nice cafes and bars, reasonable shopping area near to first stop but bigger shopping area is further away
