Barcelona
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Great city, but a few hours not enough time to do it justice.

Beautiful city. Lots of nice tapas restaurants.

Visit the cathedral - it is stunning and only €4 to get in.

Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Amazing fortified city. Make sure you are on deck when you sale in to port

A great mixture of mediterranean and British influence - Red post and phone boxes everywhere.

Everyone speaks English (as well as Maltese) and signs are all in English.

People very friendly.

Interesting - visit the street market.

A bit grubby and run down in places though.

Port Rating: Not Rated
Amazing city - stunning architecture everywhere.

Just too big to do in one day.

We went to the top of the dome of St Peter's for amazing views and saw the pope speak in the square.

The Pantheon is fascinating and free.

The Coliseum is well worth visiting but quite a trek from the Vatican
