Think you know pizza? Think again. Tony Gemignani of San Francisco’s Tony’s Pizza Napoletana restaurant has just introduced Porto Pizza to his already extensive pizza menu. With Porto Pizza, Tony captured his 13th World Pizza Championship title in a competition held in Porto, Portugal. Among other goodies, the winning pie includes imported chorizo, spicy nduja, mozzarella, micro greens and a Croft Port reduction atop a wood-fired, multi grain dough. You’ll find Tony’s on Stockton Street in North Beach, a.k.a. Little Italy. tonyspizzanapoletana.com

Only one road circles the island of Tahiti, and that one road leads to lunch at the Restaurant L' Escale du France. It's a charming, casual and extremely popular open-air spot right on the beach. Order the fresh local fish, steamed in a banana leaf and served with shrimp and coconut milk.

When traveling to Tahiti, be sure to visit the lush, nearby island of Moorea. One of the best ways of exploring the land side of Moorea is by 4WD. We choose Enjoy Moorea tours for a small group, highly personalized adventure. Traveling over sometimes steep, bumpy roads, we stopped at Magic Mountain and Belvedere lookouts for spectacular views. Moorea Tropical Garden offered a taste of yummy pineapple jam and an intro into vanilla harvesting. We were awed by a marae, an ancient stone temple. All this was followed by a light lunch of poisson cru (raw tuna) and tropical fruit belvedere moorea
on a private family beach. Check www.enjoymoorea.com

What to do if you only have a day in Bora Bora? Spend it on and in the lagoon's warm, turquoise waters. It's a breeze when you book with Bora Bora Romantic Tour. They take care of all the hard work, like touring you around the most scenic spots in a small boat, anchoring for snorkeling with rays and reef sharks, pouring drinks and cooking lunch on a private motu. You'll wish the day would never end. See www. boraboraromantic.com

If you're calling at Apia, Samoa on a South Pacific cruise, you're in for a treat. Not only is the island where Apia is located spectacular, the locals are super friendly and ready to share their culture with visitors. It's little wonder "Treasure Island" author Robert Louis Stevenson chose Samoa for his final home. While you're docked, tour Stevenson's sprawling home and garden, stop by the local market and check out the lovely beaches. http://www.samoa.travel/

Cruising to Alaska? Be sure to pick up Lonely Planet's all new guide to what to do ashore - "Cruise Ports Alaska." It's packed with tips on what to see, where to eat and, even better, how to actually get around without having to sign up for a group tour. In addition to ports in Alaska, the guidebook covers Seattle and Vancouver, both stops on the itinerary of many Alaska cruise ships. Check www.lonelyplanet.com.

From discovering the roots of Hawaiian culture, to learning about volcanoes, to interacting with dinosaurs, Honolulu’s Bishop Museum has something for everyone in the family. We were intrigued by an exhibit featuring voyaging canoes and a planetarium show on celestial navigation. Plan to spend most of the day, the collection is as extensive as it is amazing. The museum is open daily. www.bishopmuseum.org

Today, Tiburon, California is an upscale town packed with trendy cafes and lodges overlooking San Francisco Bay. A century ago, Tiburon’s waterfront was packed with trains and ferries loaded with freight or passengers. For a glimpse into history, visit the Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum. Downstairs is a scale model of the trains and ferries. Upstairs, the stationmaster’s family home of the early 1900s has been restored. For the museum’s opening times, check www.landmarkssociety.com.

Sourdough bread is one of San Francisco’s most iconic treats, and Boudin’s Master Baker Fernando Padilla has found a way to make the fragrant loaves extra special. He’s the one who originally created the bakery’s whimsical critters. If you’ve visited Boudin’s Fisherman’s Wharf location, you’ve probably seen bread shaped like teddy bears, crabs and alligators. Boudin’s secret ingredient is the Mother Dough, kept alive for nearly 200 years and counting. Learn all about it at the museum inside Boudin at the Wharf. Check www.boudinbakery.com for details.
