Shame it was raining as the gardens looked great but unable to appreciate them fully. Tour of the palace could have been better organised as we had to queue several times, sometimes in the rain - as a result we left late and arrived back at the ship late, however the beauty of booking the tour with Princess meant the ship waited for us!

This was our favorite palace.
This was our favorite palace. We were hustled through. That was fine. The gardens were fabulous. Be sure to be in the gardens at 11:00 am when the fountains come one. I wish we had had more time to wander. An hour was not enough.
