Mediterranean Cruise May 2014 Corsica and Livorno

Well it seems I have managed to get 2 years behind with posting our photos. Our first cruise in 2014 was to the Med. We have been there many times so didn't take many photos.
Our first stop was Barcelona but we were feeling lazy and decided to stay onboard and enjoyed having the ship almost to ourselves.

Next stop was Ajaccio on Corsica.

The welcome!

We just walked around the town and down by the beach. The water must have been cold as there was no-one in it. We didn't try it either!

The next stop was Livorna which is the port town for Florence, Italy. We have been into Florence a few times so decided to take a vineyard wine tasting tour.

This is a family run vineyard.

All the wines were nicely laid out to encourage sales.

The chapel.

Next we were taken on a tour through the fields of vines by horse drawn trailers.

After the tour of the vineyard it was time for the tasting with home cooked breads and local meats and cheeses. We were too busy eating and drinking to think about the photos. A very pleasant day.

Then it was back to the ship to head off to our next port of call which will be Genoa.
