Default Capri or Amalfi Drive/Tuscany or Pisa

Sailing on RCI Brilliance in October 2008. Is it possible to see both Capri AND Amalfi Drive? Or do I have to choose? What about Florence? Is the half day Tuscany excursion enough? Or should we choose an all-day tour? If we choose the half-day Tuscany tour, do we have to give up seeing Pisa altogether? Which ports do you recommend booking private tour? I have read that the ship's excursion to Capri is good. We are worried about missing the ship if we book our own excursion. Brilliance goes to Barcelona, Nice, Florence, Rome, Mykonos, Turkey, Athens, Santorini, Naples. Thanks.

If you dock in Naples take the hydrofoil which is next to the dock where cruise ships stop. Within 50 mnts you will get to Capri. You can do how we did stopping there just for a couple of hours and then take the hydrofoil to Sorrento (20 mnts ride). In Sorrento we suggest you to hire a driver who will wait for you at the port and who can drive you to see Positano, with stops for lunch and along the Amalfi Coast and then back to Naples in order to catch your ship again. We hired a driver through drivearounditaly.com and he was worth for every penny spent...

You need a full day tour of Tuscany. It is some of the most beautiful countryside on earth and you only need about 30 mins at the Leaning Tower unless you have a booking to climb. It is of course worth seeing, but completely overrun with tourists and stalls selling all sorts of tourist junk.

Thanks for everyone's input. We finally chose to do the ship's Capri/lunch excursion in Naples. In Florence some of the group will do the ship's full-day Tuscany tour, and the rest of us will go to Cinque Terre.

For transfers and daily excursions in Naples and its environs I recommend Amedeo Avellino: good english, beautiful blue jaguar, good knowledge of the sights and reasonable prices. His website is www.amedeoavellino.com
