Did hop on hop off bus to The Acropolis which is stunning! Should have got off earlier to do Athens your as we had to be back on board mid afternoon and ran out of time !

Sarande, Albania

2 out of 5
Took tender to shore , picked up a couple of nice ornaments and beer very cheap but not the prettiest town

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
Took MSC coach to town , went on cable car up to incredible views and war museum, well worth a visit and spent the rest of the time in the walled city. Will definitely return!
