Malta (Valletta)
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Port Adventure: Highlights of Malta Guide: Angela

Valletta - 3/5 Mdina - 2/5 Rest - 3/5

We expected better from Malta, the Tarxien Temples were irrelevant rocks compared to the Segesta Temple we visited in Palermo. We would recommend "Valletta - The City of the Knights" or "Dolphin Swim" instead, as these were better according to the people who have gone on both excursions/adventures.

Port Adventure: Erice and Segesta Guide: Vincenzo

Erice - 1/5 Segesta - 4/5 We did not explore Palermo.

Overall, the adventure was good and Segesta made it worth it. We were LEFT behind at the restaurant outside Erice, while utilizing the restroom. (apparently our guide is a terrible counter, we jumped on the next bus thankfully)

Segesta is not to be missed! Restaurant was great.

Port Adventure: Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and Capri Guide: Cenzia (also accepts Cindy)

Pompeii - 3/5 (great, but too much walking and highly repetitive) Amalfi Coast = 4/5 Positano = 5/5 (beautiful place) Capri = 1/5 (Not worth the visit, ugly port-town)

Too much walking in both Pompeii and Capri.

Naples was lovely, but we did not have pizza! (the restaurant served chicken)

We arrived on Sunday, meaning we were not able to visit the House of Bonaparte. Massive disappointment.
