I am travelling with a group on the Voyager of the Seas in June. Some of us are interested in saving money on the shore excursions by following the directions from portreviews.com on taking the train into each town.
When docking in Livorno is there enough time to take the train to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower and then on to Florence and back to the ship?
Has anyone had trouble with availability when buying train tickets upon arrival? Do these routes have seat reservations and are they necessary?
Any idea on how to get tickets to the Pope's public audience? We'll be there on Wednesday but could only find how to get tickets on Monday and Tuesday. Would the shore excursions that are at the Vatican on Wednesday morning include this audience even though it's not listed?
This trip is for our triplets high school graduation gift. We're really looking forward to it, but when paying for 5 people everything adds up.
Thanks for all input.
