excellent - Port is right in the city at the bottom of the Ramblas but this time we berthed a long way out so as we know the city used local taxix from ship to various points around city, again more economic than using ships tours
Not my favourite Port of call. We took an expensive open top bus. We were told that we could get on and off as we pleased but once we got off could never get back on as all buses were full. Driver did make room for somebody who had not yet bought a ticket though and relieved him of his Euros. Another passenger told me he had seen the same thing.
Royal palace is well worth a visit and almost everything worth seeing is within walking distance of the port. If you have walking difficulties I would suggest using a taxi. I spoke to someone that had rented one of the electric golf buggy type cars by the quayside and apparently though he could get everywhere he couldn't park.
Best way in to Rome from Port is by train. I bought a return ticket which included Rome buses for 9 Euros. Train was clean, fast and comfortable. We easily managed to go into St Peters basilica, The vatican museum and Sistine chapel and a quick taxi tour seeing the Colosseum and various other landmarks.
Nice old French colonial town feel to Ajaccio. Locals seemed very friendly apart from one restaurant owner who seemed upset by the fact that we only wanted drinks and weren't eating. We easily walked in to town and past the beach
