Monaco
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Great port. Lots to do walking distance from the ship, including gambling. Expensive and not as busy as I was expecting, beautiful city.

Florence (Livorno)
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Florence cannot be described, you have to experience it for yourself. It receives our highest mark, which is that we will come back to see this city again.

Pisa, what a joke. You have to go and see, but it is so commercial with hawker/vendors set up ever inch of the way to the church and the tower.

Stopped at Sardinia. This is a good spot to stay on board and relax.

Stopped at Malta. We got our taxi driver and toured the island. Initially we went to all the places the cruise ship tours were going, then we concentrated on his favorite places to go. We saw another side to Malta, that you don't see from the ship tour. Did you know one of the favorite dishes on Malta is rabbit?

Santorini

Picturesque, but not very much to do except shop. Another nice place to relax on board. From our deck we had a wonderful view of the island.

Athens (Piraeus)
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
The ruins make this a must see on anybodies agenda. We used a private tour guide for this stop (also a taxi driver). He took us everywhere we could have thought of, and then showed us places that the ships tour never even thought of going. He was a little more expensive than a regular taxi driver as he really knew all the history associated with each place he took us. We arranged this tour online and he was waiting for us at the ship terminal when we got off. We easily saw three times the places that the ships tour went to, the reason, there were just two of us, not 48 people shuffling on and off a tour bus.

Istanbul
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We disembarked here, but had two tours scheduled for the next two days. This is an amazing city, there is just so much to see and our sixteen hours of tours didn't even scratch the surface. People were very friendly, and it was much cheaper than European cities. The things to do are numerous. Sailing the Bosphorus, sultan palaces, mosques, Sophia, Grand Bazaar, spice bazaar, the old city, it just goes on.
