  1. ... and prices are fixed, so taking taxis was pretty easy.
  2. We used Uber in the past, and it was great. BTW we returned a rental car to the airport and saw a lot of their Priuses standing by in the parking lot. We like to go a day early and sightsee too.
  3. No, but our hotel (Arc La Rambla) had a luggage storage section..
  4. We stayed at Arc La Rambla. It was close to Playa Catalunya. They have a left luggage space for early arrivals, and staff were helpful with shopping suggestions as I had delayed luggage. (Husband got his luggage.)
  5. We went with ProvenceTravel (https://www.provence-travel.com/) based on Rick Steves' recommendation. I would contact them and see if they can work something out. I absolutely had to see the Van Gogh Art Immersion exhibit at Carrieres des Lumiere in Les Baux. tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1819081-d2651179-Reviews-Carrieres_des_Lumieres-Les_Baux_de_Provence_Bouches_du_Rhone_Provence_Alpes_Cote.html I ended up setting up a tour for 13 passengers. We had two vans and two guides. Our guide Edward was well versed in French history. We went to the hospital where Van Gogh was and saw the yellow house. In addition we toured Arles. It was the highlight of our whole trip. <Edit: Oh, this is an old post,, but maybe someone else will need info.>
  6. We took the Streaty Food Tour https://www.streaty.com/city/street-food-tours-in-palermo/ which I booked on Viator.com. We had a walking tour of the market area, lots of history and tried a variety of Sicilian food. The tour lasted 2-3 hours and involved a lot of walking. We met at the Teatro Massimo just outside the food markets. There are at least a few tours going on simultaneously. We were not with Streaty himself, but the guide was fine. There were some other food tours. They just were rated a little lower.
  7. I would go to Florence. With the Uffizi Museum and so many other sites to see I would spend all my time there. For our most recent trip the museums in Florence were closed on Monday, so we just went to Pisa on our own. We had been before and loved it. This time it was much more crowded and touristy. The Field of Miracles was blocked off that day-maybe because of new grass.
  8. Thanks. I am leaving on Friday. Someone said hotel to port should be 20 euros, and there are taxis waiting at the ship to take you to BCN for 39 euros. That's better than the 50 e I had heard before.
  9. I didn't book transportation to the ship yet. Does anyone have prices on that? Also what about the price from the ship to the airport? I think they quoted 50 Euros for 2 passengers. I gather they don't have any group transfers in Barcelona; it's all taxis. Right?
  10. Planning to stay at Hotel Arc La Ramblas. It sounds nice and relatively convenient to sites. I booked a transfer online with Welcome something. It is 37 euros to the hotel. (The hotel offered the same service at 3 e more...)
  11. Hi, It was the Countdown Clock. The first part was fine, but when I tried to paste it, it didn't work. Thank you for answering.
  12. I was excited to find this, but it didn't work!
  13. I don't think I would take a chance just to save a little. I would book with a local company with good reviews on Cruise Critic &/or TripAdvisor.
  14. Thank you. The tips about gps and International signs are helpful.
