This hotel was close to the train, staff were very helpful, with limited english (not a great concern for us). First impression is its old. The decor is gothic & antique. The room was a good size, the bed a little hard. The biggest down fall is the hotel had a really strong cigarette smoke smell, couldn't stay for more than one night. Breakfast was a simple coffee & croissant, but we were able to have it early before the train.

Monday 15th Dec - early rise this morning to catch the train to Messina. We stocked up with food and water the night before as the train leaves at 7.30 am. With just enough time for a coffee and croissant for breakfast at the station we hopped on the train for an 8 hour journey. The train was not that busy so we had a cabin to ourselves. Liam kept …
... the views over a couple of Corona's and a couple of Bailey's on ice. I was getting a bit worried about Vicki as she still had more steps to climb before we got back on the boat. Well worth the visit, we would recommend this city to anyone that has the chance to visit it. I almost forgot the most important thing about Dubrovnik, it is the site at which The Game Of Thrones was ...
... we both agreed that we would not have found it anyway, even if they painted yellow dots on the ground for us to follow. It was down a narrow alley way, which was right against the main water way in Venice. It was built in 1901 and I think it might have been an old hotel? Our host was a really nice lady (very easy on the eye I might also mention) and she helped us out by letting us know how to get around. We went to Marano ...
Malta was up there with the nicest places on our trip. the streets were so clean, the scenery was great and the history was something to marvel. Our so called tradition owners have nothing to complain about at all, when you hear the history of Malta and what they have had to go through as a Country to survive. This place is defiantly somewhere that we would visit ...
Messina was our first stop on the cruise and was a little bit disappointing. It was quite a dirty port, with lots of graffiti and very dusty. We walked around for about two hours, but nothing really took our eye. We found the biggest mackerel of all time though. It was in a fish mongers store and it would have been at least 45 cm wide across the back. I ended up buying two fishing lures while I was there, which made getting off the boat ...
