We are considering the Ruby Princess TA from Venice to Fort Lauderdale in October. If we do it, we will be trying to do the ports cheaply, many on our own rather than tours. In which of the following ports is it possibile to get easily into the main area, and then maybe do a hop on, hop off bus or someone else you can suggest. The ports I am specifically asking about are Rome(Civitavecchia), Marseille(Provence), Barcelona, Lisbon and Ponta Delgado. Any advice you can give me will be much appreciated.
