We're on the Carnival Freedom, August 2nd. Starts in Civitavechhia (Rome), then goes to Naples, Venice for 2 days, Messina, Barcelona, Cannes, and Livorno.
My suggestion is to do your shopping in Livorno. I bought a pair of shoes there for 35 Euros the same shoes in Venice were 79 Euros. Livorno is more a shipping town so the regular italian people shop there. Also if you are not doing a Shore x in Venice I would suggest getting a Venice Card. The orange venice card includes unlimited use of water buses and entrance to some musuems while the Blu Venice card includes unlimited use of water buses but a discount to the museums. Here is the website to buy the card http://www.hellovenezia.com/jsp/en/venicecard/index.jsp. We ordered it on line and picked it up at the train station near the water bus stop.
Thanks so much for the tips! Just wondering why you didn't do the Pisa tour? We heard that was a good one!!
