Best Port to visit on a Mediterranean Cruise

If you have been on a Mediterranean cruise - which was your favourite port of call?


Cruises to Barcelona - Visiting Barcelona from a cruise ship

Another great city to visit on a cruise. Barcelona is easily explored on foot or with the help of buses or metro. A pocket-sized guidebook, which includes a map of all the main sights, is well worth the investment. An early start is recommended to make the most of your day in Barcelona.

Cruises to Venice - visit one of the most romantic cities in Europe

Cruises to Venice involve a very spectacular sail in, whatever the time of day, but there is something quite special about a sail past St Mark's Square in the early morning light. It's worth setting your alarm that extra bit early to ensure that you are out on deck.

Cruises to Villefranche - a beautiful bay where the cruise ships moor

You will be taken by tender, past a variety of rather nice yachts, to the port, which is just a few minutes' walk from the town centre. There are several options of how to spend a day in Villefranche. The town centre itself is pleasant to stroll around with narrow shady streets and a selection of attractive shops and restaurants.

Cruises to Korcula

Your ship will drop anchor in the bay and you will be tendered ashore. If you plan on swimming make sure you take your stuff with you as you probably won't want to go back to the ship to get it...tender trips always take longer and are less inviting than you think they will be, especially later in the day.

Cruises to Dubrovnik

If you dock at the port your ship may provide a bus but if not, you can take a bus (1, 1a, 1b, and 3) or taxi (relatively inexpensive) to the main Pile Gate entrance of the Old Town.
