Actually, in terms of importance, Delos is one of the most important places you will see because it was the headquarters of the Delian league and had some of the most important temple complexes in...

Nero's Golden House is worth a visit. Also I second the suggestion to go to Ostia, Rome's ancient port.

One thing you may want to consider is that during crowded periods the big tour buses are not allowed to stop in some of the smaller towns along the Amalfi Coast. It is an incredibly crowded place and...

I think Lindos is overrated as a place to visit. Pretty view but not much original in the way of ancient architecture to see. I would have preferred to stay in Rhodes city and walk around the old...

Spiros is really excellent, and a truly nice gentleman. he even sent us a Christmas card this year. I highly recommend him.

We used Gennaro at Sorrentolimo and were extremely happy with his services. He took us on a spectacular tour of the Amalfi Coast and got us a reservation in a spectacular restaurant overlooking the...

Our 7 year old son went and had a great time on Constellation. Particularly enjoyed the Fun Factory and all of the video games there. They also have a talent show and a lot of fun activities. In...

We enjoyed the Dei Borgognoni, which is located about midway between the Spanish steps and the Trevi Fountain. Lots of good restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. In fact, there is a...

We took the ship's shore excursion to Taormina and enjoyed it a lot. There is not a whole lot to see in Messina itself. There is a marvelously preserved Greek and Roman theater at Taormina with...

The strand is at the northeastern part of a map of Galveston, right next to the harbor. The cruise terminal is near the intersection of 25th street and the water. Unfortunately, the Stacia-Leigh sank...

Good point. Another alternative to the babysitter idea is to use private drivers and tours part of the time. We did that in a number of locations, which enabled us to set the pace and do what we...

I think maybe we agree more than it might sound. Ideally, you would wait until the kids were a little older. Both the kids and the parents will probably get more out of it then. But will it kill the...

I think we may be answering different questions here. If the question was "Will young kids remember the places in the Med many years later?" then I would answer "probably not" also. If the question...

Were there any children on your sailing? If so, were there children's activities?

I took my son last summer when he was 7. He had a great time and can't wait to go back. The children's program on board Galaxy was excellent. The 3 year old will probably enjoy the time on the ship...

We are using Hand Maid tours to do that very tour. They have been highly recommended by others who have used them.

Harbor House is very nice, right on the water near the Strand. Lots of great restaurants next door. Great if you want to shop in the historic district.

Yes, that La Quinta is at 14th and Seawall and will be fine. At 14th and Market, just down 14th street across Broadway is the Original Mexican Cafe, a Galveston landmark and a good place for casual...

If I were staying in Galveston before a cruise, the place I would most like to stay is the Tremont House. Beautiful place and right in the middle of the Strand Historic area, close to the port. The...

I spent this past weekend in Galveston and am a part time resident. You will love the city. It is a really interesting and fun place. What to see? Well, in the Strand area (which is the historic area...

Since you like ancient sites so much, be sure and see Nero's Golden House in Rome. You have to get in on an English tour but it is really worth it. Right next to the Collissseum.

I would ask for Spiros personally. If you are the first one booked for that day and insist upon it he will personally be your driver. That said, I have heard nothing but good things about the other...

We also used Anna and Nikos. We gave her the information she requested and everything went very smoothly. I cannot praise Nikos highly enough. He hiked up to the top of Ancient Thera with us and took...
