After visiting Lindos and Tsambika monastery, we went further... We also liked a small resort town Feraklos - Charaki . This seems to be also a fishing village, but judging by the number of hotels, local inhabitants earn money not from the fishing... There is a number of hotels...
Well, what can I say - I liked this coast less than the west one. Although, there are good beaches and resorts towns. However, there are so many unfinished places - maybe, because of the crisis, maybe, it's usual for them, I do not know. But it thoroughly spoiled the general view...
So, after walking along the streets of Rhodes, we went inside the  Palace of the Grand Master . There is a museum (like the archaeological one) from one side. But it is forbidden to photograph there... But you can take pictures in the Palace itself, only without the...
Although I didn't like the island of Rhodes itself after our last visit here, the city of Rhodes, the capital of the island, is an exception. I really liked it! In general, I think that this is an ideal port for cruise ships. Firstly, ships stop very close to the city center, and secondly, the...
This is an unusually beautiful island ( Corsica ) !!! As for me, it's the most beautiful island in Europe!!! And it deserves at least a couple of weeks, not one day on a cruise - but here is the reason, why cruises are good - you can take a closer look at a place where you can then go for a...
So, after walking along Portoferraio , we went to the museum of Napoleon. Napoleon was exiled here in 1814... On the tiny island with the population consisting at that time of several thousand people. What is interesting - his birthplace is very close - the island of Corsica. And in...
We put high hopes on Elba. We wanted to look closer at it - is this island worth visiting with a car on the ferry. Because Elba had remained still unexplored. I liked it in advance after looking at pictures on the Internet - beautiful beaches with azure water and little towns on the...
The first bad day we had on the last cruise was in  Porto . Maybe, that's why impressions from the city were not very bright? Well, who will like such weather-forecast while approaching the city? ... At first, we did not want to go anywhere. We leisurely had breakfast in the main...
So. We continue our  travel around Normandy . We parked our car without any problems, right next to the ship. That was very convenient since the rain began on the way back. The next morning, we slowly had breakfast, took a couple of sandwiches with us, and went further...
And we went further to other  D-Day beaches . This is Arromanches. And we are going further... Here are pictures taken on the way... It seemed to me that even houses in these places differ, for example, from houses in the south of France where everything is open,...
Well, here we are back from our cruise. For some reason, I did not expect anything special from this cruise. Cruises in the  Caribbean  with bright colorful islands and the wonderful weather is one thing. But here, in Europe, you do not even know what to expect, to be honest. But...
And here's the  Cinque Terre . I'll begin with  Manarola . This is the most beautiful town of Cinque Terre, in my opinion. And if you don't have enough time and want to see only the most important attractions, it's probably best to start with this town. Also, at the time of...
On the way from  Riomaggiore  towards the next village ( Manarola ), there is the famous "Way of Love" (Via dell'Amore). We are going to walk through it - it is very short, only 20 minutes to go, and you can walk there in any footwear - the road is very good. Here...
And here's the last town in the  Cinque Terre  we visited. But we missed one of them - Corniglia. Maybe, we should've stopped there, I do not know, but we didn't have enough time, unfortunately. We decided to spend more time at the sea and the beach. And  Monterosso Al...
Vernazza  is a very beautiful town and for many people it's their favorite out of 5 cities. Probably the church near the sea impresses everyone the most. It's called San Francesco. Its biggest part was built in the 17th century, the tower - in the 16th, and some walls are even more...
We are going further  along the streets of Portovenere ... Here are former mills. As well as watchtowers. And what is it? It looks like a cemetery. Let's go and take a closer look. It is indeed the cemetery - in a very beautiful place. On the slope by the sea. I...
Our next stop was in  Portovenere . I like Liguria so much... And this town is very good for a cruise port of call.  Cinque Terre  is nearby and you can also go there because the stop is rather long - I do not remember exactly, but more than 12 hours. And there are...
Turkish  Kusadasi  was the most boring port of this cruise. Initially, we were not even going to leave the ship. Firstly, we have already been there and saw everything around. Secondly, the town itself is absolutely not interesting. Personally, I don't understand why cruise companies...
And we continue walking  along the streets of Kotor ... I liked the local embroidery. Ahh... The rain started again!!! Therefore, we ran to another museum in  Kotor ! This time, this is the Maritime Museum located in the former Gregorian Palace. You can note the...
This was the worst day of a cruise in terms of the weather - it rained almost all the time... So we were mostly visiting bars and museums. The most unusual one was Cats Museum! I've never seen such before, so I was happy.  In general, there are many cats in  Kotor  - this...
We are walking further along the waterfront... We are passing the fish market - there are many fishing schooners in the port and not only yachts. The water is cold but clear, like almost everywhere in the Adriatic Sea. The waterfront is full of small hotels and restaurants. We visited...
I really liked  Slovenia . We were there for the first time. In fact, I read a lot about this country and I liked it in advance.  Its coast is so Italian. And Bella Bella... It was our first port. We decided to go to Piran first - after reading reviews, we liked it more than ...
On the first day, we had a walk around Istanbul. The next day, we went to  Sultan Ahmed  rich with landmarks. I read at home that there were huge lines to almost all famous places. So we decided just to go there, to the Sultan Ahmed Mosque and  Hagia Sophia ,...
Our voyage started in Turkey,  Istanbul . I really wanted to go there because I heard a lot of good comments about the city, and it was one of the several large cities in Europe which we didn't visit, so we chose the cruise from there. We had a very nice time there.  In...
