Hi! We are going on a 7 day european cruise leaving on Saturday hitting the following places: Marseille, France; Nice/Monte Carlo, France; Villefranche (florence / Pisa) Italy; Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy; and Naples, Italy. I read on one of the other messages that someone took a train from the port in Civitavecchia into Rome and avoided high cost excursions and traffic. I am very interested in getting to the main siteseeing areas - but avoiding the prepackaged excursions.
Can anyone give me more information on the best ways to get around on your own at these ports?
Thanks so much!
