If it helps, this is what we saw 11 years ago. If you could get there for 9, 4 hours would be plenty to see it all, so if there is a decent bus from SC up there you have plenty of time to DIY if...

We had potentially exactly the same itinerary (on Marina) 2 years ago but high swells meant we had to dock at Naples for both days. If it comes to a straight choice between Amalfi and Positano then I...

Hi Judy (and Missymo)

A link to the set from that cruise is the first one on my 'signature' below, with the Inside Passage ones being the first 6 in that playlist. These are the other 5 :

Thanks Den. I had a bit of luck with the weather, which always helps, but this was the last day of a cruise which followed a week driving the Canadian Rockies so it fitted the bill perfectly. Hope...

All 3 are great and well worth visiting but if I could only do one it would be the YP over CSB and SIC. You may be right in saying that but for Rasputin it would be just another palace but there's...

As others have said, the situation seems relaxed to the point that no-one cares what you do (except in the Amber Room, where photography is prohibited presumably to keep the flow of people moving). I...

Thanks, it's a nice little town to mooch about in. As for dinner, I'm afraid I can be of no help at, beyond saying there are lots of lovely places I would love to have dined at. From memory we left...

in case it helps, this is the WP & YR rail trip. From memory it's 75-80 minutes of travel, but by the time you've assembled before departure and had the customs officer check passports at Fraser it...

Hi Sue
Is this a new rule ? There was no problem with photography at the Topkapi in 2012, except for inside the Treasury, where there are signs making it very clear it's not permitted. All the best,...

I didn't think there was that much to see there (although I didn't really get to the old part) so we used it as way of going to Nice for the day. The train station is about a 20-25 minute walk from...

It's a real shame you can't do the one that goes into the Yukon but that 3.5 hour tour will still be good. You'll see the famous rail route and get a different perspective by road. This is the train...
