Great shots. Looks like you had good weather as well. I saw those boats taking trips up the river and rather fancied it - seems very relaxing way of seeing the sights.

It was rather patchy rain and sometimes overcast when I was there, heavy rains just clearing ......

Photos aren't numbered - and there are way too many images to critique - so it's hard to comment on individual images. To get a helpful critique, it is generally much better to select 1 or maybe up to 3 images so the responders can give you constructive comments for those images. My general comments are that many images seem to have the colors over saturated, especially the skies. Color in the skies is often over polarized and may show signs of vignetting from using a filter on a wide angle lens. Also, seems like there is a tendency to include a lot of blank sky above a scene. Make sure you are filling the frame with the subject.

Years ago, some one told me that a painter starts with an empty canvas and must add. A photographer starts with a scene filled with all sorts of things, and must subtract distracting parts of the scene to truly capture his intended subject. Travel photography certainly presents us with this problem. Charming old villages full of stores, houses, shutters, cafes, fountains, interesting walls, spires, etc, etc, etc. You need a mix of images that show the overall scene and then some images that give the viewer a sense of the more "intimate" aspects of the scene.

You are for critique. Can you tell us what you do in processing, if anything? Do you shoot jpg or raw? If raw, what processing software do you use and what adjustments do you generally make to an image? Meaning do you generally increase saturation, add clarity, adjust colors or make other adjustments.
