After a month’s break, I’m back with my next installment of my Mediterranean cruise tour: the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. If you’re taking a cruise, Alhambra will be a tour option from the Malaga Port. It’s about an hour and a half drive each way. One of the furthest destinations from port and longest overall excursions, it was definitely worth it.

Mediterranean Cruise - Pisa, Italy |

Today I’m continuing my Mediterranean cruise tour with Pisa, Italy. (It’s been a minute since my last tour post because I’ve been slacking on my editing. Many apologies.) My post about Pisa is short and sweet because our time in Pisa was just that: short and sweet.

We had a single day to see Florence and Pisa. As we’d never been to either city, we decided to see both, which is…a lot. And it means that you don’t get a ton of time in either city. We’re glad that we saw Pisa, but we would have loved more time in Florence. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get back there someday.

Mediterranean Cruise: Accademia Gallery

Mediterranean Cruise: Florence - Accademia Gallery |

I’m continuing my Mediterranean cruise tour today with our time at the Accademia Gallery in Florence.  As I mentioned in my first Florence post, we had a very short amount of time in Florence. We spent most of our time in the city outside. The one interior tour we took was the Accademia Gallery. Best known as the home of Michelangelo’s David, the Accademia also features a wealth of other Michelangelo sculptures and a sizable collection of paintings by Florentine artists, such as Pontormo, Sandro Botticelli, Andrea del Sarto, and Domenico Ghirlandaio.
