The best thing to do in this port was to visit Monte Carlo and Cannes. These two places will not disappoint. In Monte Carlo you experience the wealthy at its best with enormous yachts and sports cars zooming by. In Cannes go to the beach and take a dip in the Mediterrean Sea or simply lay on the beach.

Toulon was a nice quiet port to visit and just stroll around. The market was full of fresh fruits and vegetables and wonderful pastries. The down side was that we were in port on a Sunday when most of the quaint little shops were closed.
Pompeii and the Amalfi coast were amazing!
The leaning Tower of Pisa is a must see! If you want to climb to the top Book ahead. Florence is beautiful and the Pizza and Gelato are simply the best we had the whole vacation!
Rome was by far the busiest port but worth it. Have a guide take you to see as much as possible, it only makes you want to see more!
