Bari, Italy our first Port

Our first stop on the tour was the oldest and most beautiful church in the old city. A wedding was in progress when we entered, it was charming.

As we strolled through the old city we were awed by its beauty.

Our tour included a "tasting" of local wines, cheese and olives. The olives were so good we bought a jar to bring home for DH!

Always the most interesting things appear on daughter's photography!

More of the interesting sites we encountered. Perhaps another perspective Hero for a cover?

We passed a butcher shop as we strolled down a narrow street.

Enjoying sightseeing in the old town area of Bari. Notice how the laundry hangs outside windows. Motor bikes were the transportation of choice for most.

Three local girls stopped to talk while we were admiring the port. They were curious because they said they were sure my daughter was an American!

The old port near the old city was beautiful.
Our first day of the cruise was an excellent adventure. We were both worn out when we returned to the ship! Tomorrow, Katakolon and Olympia.

    Wow, oh wow. These are the most beautiful pics. I'm trying to wrap my mind around the idea of this magical place. :)

    What a vacation, how lucky you are to be able to spend such quality time with your daughter. Great pictures, no matter who took them. Ah, what a great thing it is
    making memories.

    I thought with all the snow, ice and rain a little warmth and scenery was called for! What better way to warm up than to admire the "scenery" of the Mediterranean! Hope everyone enjoys the pictures. Tomorrow Olympia!
