Lovely town with great shopping right off the boat. Wish I could have spent more time there. Embarkation and debarkation were a breeze. Plenty of public transportation

This town was "ok". Nothing super spectacular but it was VERY low key. A quick walk from the Ship and there was a few piazza's we discovered after checking out a few churches, etc. There was one excursion we WISH we would of signed up for It was for these underground Caverns that looked super cool. Since this was a pretty busy itinerary, to be honest, we just enjoyed sitting in the piazza, ordered some lunch, and yes "more wine" and just chilled. Again, the weather was lovely, the people were just basically rested. After a bit, we ventured back to the ship...
