I enjoy Viking cruises because it includes the most stops. I specifically enjoyed the having a few days in Barcelona before beginning the cruise. I enjoyed every stop it's hard to pick one.One of my favorite stops was Sete (Montepiller) France. The port was unique because of all the flowers around the water ways. I also enjoyed the Van Gough excursion was very interesting. Our lunch at I believe Les Baux-Provence was very nice. Every excursion had lots of variety. Eze, Nice, and Monte Carlo were unbelievable. Our day in Tuscany was wonderful with a stop at a farm house and winery "Fattoria- San Donato". I enjoyed trying the various pasta dishes, roasted vegetables, cheese and especially the wine. Seeing the "Leaning Tower" for the first time was truly amazing. The ship and service were great. We had dinner at the various restaurants. All were very good. The food at the Italian restaurant was delicious. It was a great cruise!
