Katakolon (Olympia)
Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
There is not much to see at the port. If you are interested, Olympia can be done in a two-three hour round trip.

You can rent a taxi from the port (approx 80 Euros) - bargain hard. Else, you can rent a car as well.

Athens (Piraeus)
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Great place. Gets you to the Acropolis in 20 minutes by taxi (15 Euros)

We took a taxi to Acropolis. Entrance was free on a Sunday. We beat the excursion crowd and managed to shop in Plaka as well. Finally, we took the train back to Piraeus.

A great port with a fantastic view of Athens from the Acropolis

Rhodes
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
The old city is mind blowing. It is a quaint town that we explored on foot from the port and completely loved it.

Limassol
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
There is not much to be seen in Limassol. We took a tour to Kourian and Omodos - interiors of Cyprus where we got too see village life as well as some ancient ruins. Great place with friendly people.

Palermo
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Well connected to the city. Overall, Palermo is a bustling city - untidy and full of small roads and lots of cars. We hired a taxi that took us to Monreale and showed us all parts of Palermo (all for 90 Euros for 6 persons)

We found the Catacombs spooky and interesting - not to be visited with kids though.
