Port Reviews

Barcelona

Always take side street off las ramblas. The shops and interesting building are worth a look. You won’t get lost

Cartagena (Spain)

Walked off ship and in port 3mins lovely wander around. As you come out of port visit tourist office cabin on right as you go through auto opening barrier. Get a map and ask for onfo. Nice walk to Roman viewpoint 10mins. And nice cafes etc in town

Gibraltar

Walk off ship into town 10mins walk straight up Main Street 15mins to the rock and cable car to top to see monkeys. Some got charged 30euros to get back down on cable car one way as he was dropped off by taxi. Cheaper to get cable car at bottom as return.

La Palma

Taxi from port 11eurors each way . We walked back 40 mins stroll. Nice narrow streets off Main Street. Nice to explor off main areasnof town

Valencia

We got public bus 1.4euroes each way from just outside port across the roundabout bus stop on left hand side of the road as you walk from port number 4 into main centre new centre oe department stores- worth doing homework wish we went to old town but that’s our preference. Ship shopping in centre £15 per person 4 hrs shopping. Public bus driver told us when to get off and bus stop for going back. Bus every 10mins
