This was really nice. We first took the bus for the entire ride around the city. We went to catch the bus at the first stop so we got the roof top seats, which filled up very quickly. After the first round around the city we the took it again and we were getting off at placed we found interesting and going back on the bus when we were done. It was really nice. Our first bus driver didn't know how to proceed with the Viator tickets, but did let us ride the bus. When we took it the second time, we got our tickets with no problems. Since Palma's attractions are far apart this was the best way to visit many of them in one day. Since we came on the cruise ship and the port is really close to the city, we actually went back to the ship for lunch and came back out again after. There is a stop located right in front of the port. Very convenient!
This trip was unbelievable! It would have been very relaxing if we didn't have to stress about getting back on our cruise ship. The trip was beautiful, however, the people who were supposed to get us to the Chianti region were an hour late, therefore, we were estimated to come back an hour late... The region is about 45 minutes away from Florence (driving), which makes it about 2 hours away from the cruise port. We almost missed our ship. The Italian people are very laid back and don't care too much about the time and schedules. They were very nice though, they took us earlier to the closest place where we could take a cab to the train station to go back to Livorno (port city). The region and horses and our two guides were excellent. The food was great and winery was very nice as well. Even though we had a very stressful time, for those who are not on a strict schedule, we would highly recommend this day trip. It was excellent.
