October 2014 - Ocean Princess to Europe - Mediterranean

Mickey55's Tips

Itea (Delphi), Greece - This excursion was of a lot of breathtaking scenery (wear your sea sick patch) in a very comfortable motor coach up into the hills to Delphi. We visited the wonderful Museum at Delphi that we really needed a lot more time to browse and visit the gift shop. Our tour bus dropped us a few blocks from the pier so we had time to wander and shop in the quaint shops.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - We booked a de-bark tour of Rome partly because we werre staying only overnight and we were able to see all of the major historic sites in a comfortable motor coach and guide. We entered the Coluseum and walked around. Awesome. And we went into the Vatican City and St Peters Basicilia - do not miss this. The Sistine Chapel tour was hurried and the Chapel itself was anti-climatic, except for what it stood for. If you have time to spend, gain entrance into the Vatican Museum. The displays there are awesome.
Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece - We booked an excursion that took us for a ride in a nice motor coach up into the hills. Just a leisurly half day.
Aghios Nikolaos, Crete - We booked an excursion and had a leisurely drive up into the hills on a very comfortable modern bus (wear a sea-sick patch) and saw some beautiful scenery. We made a couple of stops to browse and shop.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Where do I start? Our ship docked right in town and we boarded a very comfortable large tour bus. The last residence of Mother Mary was interesting history wise. Our tour guide gave us ear-buds and she used a quiet microphone which was great as she was very knowledgeable. Wear sea-sick patch as the road is very twisty. EPHESUS - this site is mostly ruins, but what you do see is MAGNIFICIENT. I could have spent a lot more time here. You actually wander amongst the ruins.
Santorini, Greece - What fun! We did not book an excursion but rode the gondola up the hill instead of riding the donkeys up the stairs and walked around the wonderful quaint shops; bought way more than we should have; ate some greek yogurt; and walked down the stairs to the dock with the donkeys and other walkers. What fun.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - We spent 2 days in Athens before getting onboard being tourists. Did all the touristy things and rode Segues around the city for 4 hours. What fun. You can taxi anywhere fairly reasonable too.
