I just finished reading Tom Ogg's detailed port guide for the Millenium Venice-Barcelona cruise. I was just blown away with the amount of detail. Since we travel with 2 teens, taking the shore excursions gets pretty pricey, so we are of necessity do-it-yourselfers, and this was just the type of information I needed.
A couple of questions Mr. Ogg or someone else may be able to answer.
Livorno - on the Italian trains website, there seems to be two stations. Which station do I want to take the train to Florence?
Is it necessary to purchase tickets ahead of time, or are there lots of seats available both there and Civitavecchia?
When we arrive in Venice at the end. we will not fly out until later that evening. Is there anywhere we can leave our luggage so we won't have to cart it all around Venice with us for the day?
Thanks for any help.
