We are on EPIC leaving from Barcelona on 9/30/12 and I am trying to get some fellows cruisers to share shore excursions in Italy with us. These excursions would be less expensive than the ones thru the ship and they are not on huge tour buses- they are small groups. Thru Shared Shore Excursions in Italy I created a group for ROME on Wed 10/3 to go out to Orvieto in Tuscany and on Thurs 10/4 a group for FLORENCE going to the Chianti region. Please go to their website to read about there tours and sign up for my groups if you wish. As you can tell, we want to get out of each city to the countryside because we have been to Rome & Florence. The cost of these tours would be 85 euros pp if we get a group of 8 people, or 100 euros if we have a group of 6 people.
For Naples, we want to do an Amalfi tour and I like the AP Tours Elite Shared shore excursion for Amalfi and their cost is 80 euros pp. It sounds like a very good tour for a good price.
Please goggle these tour companies if you are interested to read about the tours & I hope some of you will sign up for these tours !
