I think the last two posts have great advice. We also like to look at all the tour offerings of the cruise and perhaps other cruises (you can usually find this on cruise company web sites. The internet is a great place to learn, and even after more than 30 years of international travel we like to spend time at Borders browsing the newest tour books (we seldom buy the things since they are out of date before you even buy). The important thing is to narrow down the options and try to prioritize what would be best for you. At that point than you can explore how to achieve your options whether it be overpriced cruise line tours, private tours (usually found and booked on-line), or the cheapest (but most challenge) DIY (Do It Yourself). I will give you an example for Naples. From that port you have many options such as Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, Herculanium, the Amalfi Coast and some lesser known places such as Ischia. In some cases its possible to do a combination of places (such as Pompeii and Sorrento) and in other cases it might be best to take a full day to see one thing (such as the Amalfi Coast).
