Is there a wine tasting tour in Marseille? We are leaving for 12 day Med cruise on Princess 8/31. Would luv your opinion and reviews on shore excursions. I am WINE LOVER and want to experience the local wine and cuisine in addition to the ruins etc... Also POMPEY OR HERCULANEUM?

Can't help you with the wine tasting tour in Marseille. You might want to do a "google" search to see what tours are out there.

As for Pompeii or Herculaneum - I have done both and they are both worthwhile. Pompeii is much larger and requires a goodly amount of time to see it all. I actually believe I preferred Herculaneum as it was much more well-preserved. This was the summer resort of the wealthy Romans and offers a fantastic view into their decadent and lavish lifestyle. They have even attempted to restore the landscape to its original configurations. It is small enough to really spend time exploring the whole excavation site without feeling rushed - it was also much less crowded. We arrived just as it opened and virtually had the entire site to ourselves for the first hour.
