My husband and I are going on RCCL Voyager of the Seas in October. (21st)
We are hitting: Marseille, Villefranche, Livorno, Rome, Naples.
We plan on doing most of the excursion on our own and trying to be realistic - seeing only 1 or 2 things at each port.
Can you provide feedback on our choices:
Marseille - we are going to Avignon (Palace of Popes) by Train on our own
Villefranch - Nice, Eze, Monte Carlo - again by train on our own
Livorno - we want to do the Cinque Terre - do you have any info for me on this?? the ship offers a tour but I'm not sure if I have time to swing this in 1 day. We get arrive at 7AM and depart Livorno at 7PM - we've been to Florence before and wanted to see something different.
Rome - we will do Rome on our own - easy - been there before
Naples - another one where I don't know what to do - - I would like to see Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. How can I do both of these in 1 day and on my own? We're there from 7-7 also. Any ideas on websites I could check out? I just don't want to break down and book thru the ship - too much $$.
Please provide advice on Cinque Terre and my desire to do Pompeii and Amalfi.
