This is a plan many people do, and is one of the most exciting parts of cruising as a whole. Some components to a great port city and destination is the areas history, convenience, photo opportunity, and food and drink options.
One of the most popular ports in Europe is Valletta, Malta. This city is the capital of the small island of Malta located just south of Sicily. For photo enthusiasts there are spectacular views of medieval fortresses that line the harbor, and with a short walk you can head over to the St. John co-cathedral. Afterward, tour the Grand Masters palace located on palace square.

Another option is Portofino, Italy. Portofino is a tiny town with spectacular views. Nestled in a cove overlooking the Mediterranean, this little city will make for some incredible photos. The largest major city is Genoa where your ship may dock. Though you may have to take a quick shuttle to the small town, it is definitely worth the trek.
