    The activity level for this journey is moderate, but the hot weather, particularly in summer, can make any activity seem more strenuous. This is an active journey that includes walking on uneven surfaces, up and down irregular stairs and on cobblestone streets. Activities include: swimming, exploring and a great deal of walking. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if enjoyed separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate amount of stamina in order to get the most out of your vacation.
