Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este Half-Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A very nice way to spend a Sunday morning in the country side. Hadrian's Villa is quite an interesting excavation site when considering all the places we have come across his influence.It's mind boggling that it has taken 400 years so far.It does take some imagination to figure out how it all looked in those days.With Villa d Este one doesn't have that problem.The villa is nothing special until one heads for the large gardens with its wide range of spectacular fountains. We would have liked to have spent more time there.The little town of Tivoli was very picturesque and a great place to get away from the crowds in Rome.

My Review

IT WAS COLD IN THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGE OF OBIDOS BUT ENJOYED THE LOCAL CHERRY LIQUEUR GINJA W/ CHOCALATE CUPS.THE WALLS REMINDED US OF AVILLA IN SPAIN.ALCOBACA WITH ITS MONASTARY AND BIGGEST GOTHIC STYLE CHURCH WERE VERY INTERESTING IN LIGHT OF THE TWO TOMBS.WE LIKED OUR LUNCH IN NAZARE AND THE COMPANY.THE BATALHA MONASTERY WAS ANOTHER GOTHIC MASTERPIECE.FATIMA IMPRESSED US THE MOST AND I CAN SEE WHY IT ATTRACTS MILLIONS OF CATHOLIC PILGRIMS AND TOURISTS EVERY YEAR.

Sintra Half-Day Trip from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THIS TOUR IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR. A VERY NICE LITTLE PLACE IN THE CENTER OF THE OLD TOWN.THE NATIONAL PALACE IN SINTRA WAS WELL WORTH VISITING.IT'S TOO BAD WE WERE NOT ABLE TO VISIT THE PALACIO DE PENA WITH ITS VARIED STYLES. CABO DA ROCA WAS INTERESTING TO SEE AS THE MOST WESTERN POINT. IT CAN GET QUITE STORMY AS THE BLOWN OVER LIGHTTOWER INDICATES.

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very nice trip. Excellent Scottish guide except for the fact that he was hard to understand in the back of the noisy bus. (no mike) We were not all able to enter Dali's house since we arrived a few minutes late. Because of the size of the bus we also were not able to watch the sundown down the road. It made it too long a day for what we paid for.

A very enjoyable day Fontainbleau nice as expected. the surprise was vaux le vicomte being private property and the way it was initially expropriated by the king. the garden is a gem.good enough for some folks to get married there recently and divorced!

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

had not been there since 1972! the entrance was very unusual when compared to the architecture.the excavations were also quite unexpected.the presentation of the mona lisa was given the attention it deserves as well as the more ancient sculptures.it,s a place one can not do justice in even one day let alone the 4 hours we spent on the tour with a delightfully enthousistic guide.the louvre is truly the number one museum worldwide and worth visiting more frequently then we did.assez souvent would be my motto.
