Nancy and Joe Weigand enjoyed the shore excursion that showcased the history of Pompeii and Mt.
The “Cruise Experts Tell All” series turns to our own guests to get an insider’s perspective on cruising with Holland America Line. The nicest tour was an overnight from Civitavecchia to Livorno and staying overnight in Florence to see it illuminated.
My favorite shore excursion was in Egypt, The Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx & The Nile in Style. I’ve had a lot of fabulous shore excursions in the Med and let me put in a good word for my some of my favorite Shore Excursions staff. In the Tuscany Region, the combination of Florence, Pisa and Luca was one of many shore excursion highlights during both cruises, the site seeing (Photo on Hop on Hop off bus), the cleanliness of the cities, the fascination of no cars in Luca and of course the opportunity to ‘hold up’ the Leaning Tower of Pizza. If you’re taking a Mediterranean cruise that visits these ports, the shore excursions can be pre-booked so you get the tour of your choice.
When I visited Ephesus (Turkey) I realized I had never been in a situation with easily 1000 people roaming around and no one was saying a word.

Whether you like active or scenic, historic or cultural, Holland America Line features thousands of tours to fit every interest. We asked our Facebook fans for their favorite Mediterranean shore excursions, and the answers included a variety of inspiring experiences.
Tessa Oostrik, Inge Klasen and Willeke van Paassen have all been a great help to me on my Med cruises. If you can’t decide what shore excursion to take in the Mediterranean, get suggestions from the people who know best … our own past passengers! Spectacular and interesting to go from the warmth of a sunny day in Taormina to the snow at Mt Etna! Very interesting and being able to actually touch the artifacts and walk were people walked years ago was unbelievable. This unique and historical destination is truly one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.
Thinking back to my most recent Med cruise, I really enjoyed the Ancient Herculaneum excursion.

With its magical picturesque architecture, it was a port we did not want to leave and left us longing to return.
Visiting this part of the world was a once in a life time opportunity that we likely would not have pursued had it not been for this cruise itinerary.
I felt strange standing in what was likely a bedroom of a house that was destroyed by volcanic ash. Katakolon also greatly impressed with a visit to the ancient ruins of Olympia, site of the original Olympics.
