Enjoyed commentary. Would have been good to point out shopping areas etc for people who are not historically minded. Had to walk and ask for directions in midday sun.

Nice drive and cheap alternative for cruise - individual - day trippers, departures at all points every 25 minutes when a cruise ship is present.

Pleasant walk. The bus starts from the port at the foot of the boat and we can take advantage of the various stops.
