Livorno where U must take a $8 shuttle bus as no walking inside port-area! Pisa.Firenze say no more but best is LUCCA.U take a 20min train to PISA then a 30 min train to LUCCA

The eternal city..my favorite in whole world. Take a Euro 10 rtn train which is an hour+3 Min's.Free shuttle to port entrance and 6 min walk to Station @Civitaveccia.

Forget Seville...very over-rated.Cadiz is so lovely and ship in town.Beware narrow streets and even with a map Navigating is tricky! Lovely promenade walk there+good swim beach

Lisbon
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Take train for EURO 4 rtn to ESTORIL+CASCAIS,which I think are better!.Trams right by ship for Lisbon, but beware pickpockets.No need for expensive shuttle bus...train station ALCANTARA right by ship.

Tours To Santiago DE Compostela(over an hour away) but climb up the steep hill for fab views of the estuary+oyster pots. Very good EL Corte Inglis Dept store,about 25 min walk.Amazing atmosphere just 5 Min's from ship in the "Old Town" where U can sit outside and have wonderful seafood Al Fresco
