John and I usually don't take tours - we usually prefer to see things on our own at our own pace. We're thinking of seeing Athens on our own. I've been reading that the metro is very convenient to the port and the Acropolis. But Rome has so much to see and is more spread out so we're hesitant to go it alone. The ship's tour "Imperial Rome" seemed interesting but we don't want to be limited by the bus.
What are you interested in seeing in Rome???
I think this is GREAT to be "talking" to someone who'll be on the same cruise! Is this your first cruise?
