Naples, Italy
Took a ferry to Capri - just beautiful. Continued to Anacapri and took the chair lift to the top of the mountain for a panoramic view.
Don't Miss: See everything possible
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Did a city sightseeing tour of Rome and then the Vatican museum/Sisteen chapel
Don't Miss: see everything possible
Cannes, France
Beautiful - pristine - nice way to end the trip. Don't count of souviner shopping - Wonderful walking along the beach. We took a sightseeing tram, available at the pier, which gave us a good 1 hour tour around the city - well worth it - 10 Euros each.
Don't Miss: Enjoy the beauty of the city
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Took bus transfer into Florence and walked the city - Wonderful!!!!! Best shopping on the trip.
Don't Miss: See everything possible!
Valletta, Malta
Very interesting city. We climbed into the walled city and walked around. St John's Cathedral was fabulous.
Don't Miss: St. John's co-cathedral
