  1. Most major European cities have some kind of demonstration on May Day, but they tend to be in one area. Montserrat s definitely worth a visit anyway.
  2. As we live in London we go abroad a lot and I often comment to my OH I don’t know how elderly/disabled people manage in many places. Even here in the UK where we have plenty of aid and facilities, some places are still challenging.
  3. We’ve been to SPB twice and both times booked the Comfort Tour with Alla Tours, which was excellent. I had a manual wheelchair with me and didn’t eel hurried at all.
  4. There are likely to be demonstrations.
  5. I always do plenty research on anywhere we go, so as I have limited mobility I have always ruled out Santorini, but thanks for the info.
  6. I would never use a company like Viatour as they don’t operate any tours. Much better to book direct with alocal operator.
  7. I have taken a manual wheelchair on two Norway cruises. In Alesund we took the HOHO bus from the port. In Stavanger we took a boat rip to Pulpit Rock. It departed about 50m from where the ship docked and they gave us ‘carer goes free’ - rodne.com The other day I was looking at the Port Authority website for the Lofoten Islands and they had a link to a leaflet which advertised accessible tours. You could also ask the tourist board VisitNorway.no Also look at the Northern European forums, WhatsinPort and Tripadvisor. If you use Facebook there are two good pages you may wish to join Disabled Cruisers and Accessible Cruising.
  8. Xwhenever I have contacted P+O regarding arrival and departure times they have given them to me. They are normally also available on the Port Authority website.
  9. Why don’t you ask P+O, they can give you exact times.
  10. In Valletta we did the HOHO bus which is 2 routes and both included in the ticket price. We thought it was good value. The Vieux Port in Marseille is very nice, there is an interesting museum or take the bus up to the basilica or if it’s good weather go on the little ferry to Chateau D’If and I’ve de Froulle. Barcelona is very easy to get around and plenty to see. Personally, I wouldn’t book an excursion in Barcelona. It’s a long time since I e been to Genoa, so cant help. Theres quite a lot to see in Palermo, but last time we were in Sicily we shared a private tour with other passengers on our Roll Call, which was operated by Sicily with Mario. We didn’t have to pay until the day.
  11. Personally I’d stay in Cadiz as it’s a nice city and plenty to see and do. Seville is one of my favourite cities in Spain, but one quick visit in a rushed day really doesn’t o it justice. as nice as Cordoba is, I’d visit Granada and the Alhambra from Malaga.or, as already suggested, stay in Malaga.
  12. We did a tour with Sicily with Mario. Didn’t have to pay until the day.
  13. We used this company in June and couldn’t fault them. We shared a mini bus from port o our accommodation in central Rome. It had been organised by somebody on our Roll Call. We also usedthem to return from Rome to FCO. Couldn’t fault their service.
  14. We recently stayed in Hotel Arlecchino over one bridge from Piazzale Roma. Friendly, efficient staff and a large room.
  15. We always have a supply of Euros because we are frequently in the Eurozone, but normally we only take credit cards that don’t charge foreign transaction fees. Many places are contactless these days.
