Often a coach trasfer to Rome is offered so you can do your own thing when you arrive. It's still not cheap, but gives you flexibility.

If you haven't been to Gibraltar before, a tour of the rock is a must. Taxis and minibuses are plentiful and not over priced. Keep all valuables and removeable items (spectacles etc.) away from the apes. They are very curious. You can take the cable car to the top of the rock, but queues can be long. Have a good holiday.

We have done a similar itinerary and chose to do a tour to Florence and one to Seville on both occasions we chose to just get the coach to the city and then wander on our own...Florence we had a guide for a little while and then several hours on our own which was very good. Seville we didn't have a guide but were dropped off and picked up at the same spot several hours later. everywhere else we did our own thing. Alghero we were tendered ashore and looked around the lovely town stopping for drinks and a cake when we needed refreshment. Rome we did on the train which was very easy. Gibraltar we walked into town. Barcelona we got shuttle into town and then the hop on hop off bus which was excellent. Hope that helps a bit!!!

Hi, for Barcelona, I would recommend the open top bus "turistic " tour, 3 interchangeable routes, 42 stops, excellent commentry, you just hop on and hop off where you like you can get tickets outside the cruise terminal (or online in advance) and the buses stop there too. There is lots to do in Barcelona, helicopter rides, cable cars trams, and really easy to get around, Gaudí's Cathedral is a must! check out these websites ..............As stated by Morris Rome is very easy by train, and excellent open top bus tour............Cannes excellent train service as well could even venture to Monaco- Monte Carlo about 50- 60 minutes or even Nice..............Further info can be provided if of interest.........Jude.

We did similar tour a few years ago. When the ship docks in Barcelona u could take a taxi from the port (not far to the city) then do the open top bus tour which is very good and u can jump on and off whenever u wish. Gibraltar is another one u can do on ur own. We did the tour with the ship to Seville and it was wonderful. A really lovely city. The train service is excellent fo Cannes although we used it to go to Monte Carlo, and again it was wonderful and so easy. Like yourselves we went to Rome on an organised tour (there are so many, remember ur comfortable shoes!) Have a great holiday.
