US Passport Info

ENHANCE YOUR VACATION WITH A SHORE EXCURSION IN ONE OF THESE EXCITING PORTS:

  Barcelona: This capital and cultural hub of the Catalon region is an energetic, cosmopolitan city that is rich in history, culture and the arts   Monte Carlo: Perched above the Mediterranean is the jewel of the French Riviera, playground to the rich, featuring grand resorts and opulent casinos.  
  Florence/Pisa (Livorno): Florence, the jewel of the Renaissance, symbolizes the wealth and power of Italy's golden age more than any other city in Italy. The lovely seaport of Livorno serves as a gateway to the opulence and artistry of Florence and the quiet intimacy and history of Pisa.   Rome (Civitavecchia): A renaissance fort guards the harbor of Civitavecchia, gateway to Rome -- one of the world's greatest cities. From its inception in 753 B.C. to the days of its decline, Rome has been the focal point for many of the world's greatest artists, architects, rulers and philosophers.  
  Naples/Capri: Once the domain of kings and wealthy nobleman, modern Naples is a lively, working port city along the Amalfi Coast. It is surrounded by Cape Miseno on one side and the Sorrento peninsula on the other, and across the blue waters of the Bay of Naples lies the charming isle of Capri. Its modern skyline is dominated by the heights of the not-too-distant Mount Vesuvius.   Mykonos: Part of the Greek Islands in the Aegean Sea, Mykonos is a dazzling destination filled with whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches, and beautiful beaches set against an equally striking blue sky. Seen from a distance, the island chain of the Cyclades resembles a necklace on deep blue satin. Once you set foot on Mykonos, you may well determine it to be the crown jewel.  
  Istanbul: Istanbul has dominated the Straits of Bosphorus for 25 centuries. As Constantinople, the city was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, a metropolis of stunning splendor when the great capitals of Europe were mere villages. The influence of Asia and Europe, the religion of Christians and Moslems, and the culture of Turks, Persians and Asians have all found their way into the daily life of this bustling metropolis.   Kusadasi (Ephesus): A sleepy fishing village until only recently, Kusadasi has emerged as one of the most alluring spots for travelers along the Ionian Coast. Tourists from all over the world come to Kusadasi to visit Ephesus, one of the most fascinating archeological sites available to the modern-day traveler.
 
 
  Athens: With its magnificent architecture, legendary cultural attractions and unparalleled place in history, this capital city known as "the cradle of Western civilization" is a must-see destination for world travelers. A captivating blend of the classical and the contemporary, Athens boasts some of the world's oldest and most renowned landmarks, and wears its ancient heritage proudly.
 
  Venice: Located at the head of the Adriatic Sea, an intricate web of tiny islands and canals make up the enchanting city of Venice. In this intimate setting where gondoliers serenade, delicate bridges lead to winding cobblestone streets, and glorious renaissance architecture form a fairy-tale backdrop, it is no wonder that many people feel it is the world's most romantic destination.

Airport to the Cruise Terminal

The Barcelona cruise terminal is at Port Vell in Barcelona which is at the Southern most end of the famous Ramblas. The seaport terminal is only 10 mins walk from the Ramblas. However there are several cruise terminals at the port and if you are in one of the terminals which is furthest from the Ramblas you would need to catch a shuttle bus which will take you to Monument a Colon (The memorial to Christopher Columbus) which is at the Southern most end of the Ramblas.
