There is no comparison :) The walls of Dubrovnik are a very short climb up and a flat walk around the perimeter. Not sterenous at all. The fortress at Kotor is up over 1300 steps and takes around...

Thanks (and to Thoie too)

At about 1.50 in the first video shows St Michael's Cave. The top part is like a big theatre, with very wide steps down. From memory, the path/steps down to the lower level is tighter but still not...

The walk to Nugget Falls from the Visitor Centre. As everyone says, it's about 15 minutes to the sandbar at the foot of the falls. If you want to branch off to to the other signposted photo point,...

Both are very nice, interesting places for an afternoon so there's no bad choice to be made. But it's so much smaller and compact I would think MC would be better to stroll around and take in the...

Belem is too far to walk from the dock, but there is the No 15 tram or regular buses. From memory the journey is about 15 minutes. I think the fee for the Discoveries Monument is €5. All the best,...

Hello Janice

These were from 2 separate cruises to Naples, so I didn't have to make a choice as you do. Both are sensationally good days so it's really whether you prefer history to beauty. If I...

The very end of the video in post 19 shows us doing just that. The beach is shingle rather than sand but it was a perfect way to end a hot day. All the best, Tony

When at Majorca I went to Illetas beach, which briefly shows from 1.00 in this (take No 3 bus from the Porto Pi shopping centre). It's fairly small but has facilities. I enjoyed it.
