Rome - Angels and Demons - the best way to see it is with the rush of a Hollywood movie ! Rome is best seen on an Angels and Demons tour, having first refreshed your memory by watching the Ron Howard film of the Dan Brown book once again before you go. Sadly Tom Hanks will not be running around...

B718 was the best Strictly Cruise ever! Dancing has always been huge on cruise ships, and Strictly Come Dancing is certainly huge. If you were there you can now show your friends what they missed, and if you were there here is the chance to see a glimpse and remember. Our main presenter Jean @DorisVisits started as a dancer and...
Barcelona! Barcelona! You can hear the late great Freddie Mercury sing. It is a place of great food, great wine, wonderful architecture, fountains and art. The art starts at the port but as a cruise passenger you have no chance in seeing everything in a day; which is good. Barcelona is a place you can go back to many times....

Corsica City Guide, Jean's film for Doris Visits We visited Corsica as an added bonus on our Mediterranean cruise. The winds were too strong for the ship and tenders to go in at Cannes, so to avoid wasting a day at sea the ship took us to the French island of Corsica. Arriving at 0930hrs and leaving at 1730hrs this...

Alicante a city and a port on the Cost Blanca The Mediterranean is a very popular cruise route and Alicante is almost always on it somewhere as the second stop after either Gibraltar or Lisbon. We arrived around 8am and had to re-board by 1630hrs, that is fairly standard. Alicante is what we call an easy port. There is enough to...

The Mountain Town Of Mijas Mijas is a beautiful mountain town just twenty minutes from Malaga and worth a half day visit. Donkey Taxi Mijas is now best known for its Donkey Taxi. The rides on the donkeys and the pulled carts are a huge attraction in Mijas and they await you as you arrive. Sheltering under the trees and in the...
ROME - back there soon on B727 It was not built in a day and you will not see everything in a day. My guess is you will never see my favourite church! Not that I am into churches but the one in September XII near the Termini takes some beating. If you are having a weekend break then take...
