The ship, the Arethusa, is fabulous.  Very nice cabins that are well organized, great food, and a staff that is outstanding. You couldn't do better!

Yes, there is a lot of walking. But all of it is in beautiful, interesting places such as Florence, Lucca, Cannes, etc. and the pace is not too fast. There are many hills in the smaller towns especially.  Most of the walking is on cobblestones, and some is on uneven ground. Not at all suitable for a wheelchair or a walker, although a few people on our trip did use canes.

This area can be quite warm in the summer, so if warmer weather affects your ability to walk, take that into consideration, too.
