Excursions Western Med.
My wife and I and another couple are taking the Brillance of the Seas from Barcelona to Villafranche, Livorno, Naples, Venice, Dubrovnik, Coru, Rome back to Barcelona.
The shore excursions booked on board are very expensive. Has anyone taken this cruise before with recomendations about "do-it-ourselves" shore excursions using taxis, day trip companies waiting on shore etc? We would love to go to many of the places offered by RCL, but at a less expensive price.

Any "pros" with suggestions?

Re: Excursions Western Med.
I noticed your inquiry had not received any responses. We are a party of 8 on this cruise July 10-17. Have you gotten any more info yet??? Here's what I've found: Paolo does shore excursions more intimate and less expensive.
There's a train, very cheap, walking distance from port, Citavecchia to Rome and back. Florence has hop on hop off bus tour for cheaper rate. Look at or just

anything info you have collected I would love to hear about!
Good luck!
