4 days in Venice, then 12 day cruise, then 5 days in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

Our planned short trip to Italy has grown! :)
We are now booked for the following:
Arriving in Venice on Tuesday, October 30 for 4-night stay
Boarding cruise ship Oceania Cruises Riviera on Saturday, November 3
Departing Sunday, November 4
Ports of call include: Dubrovnik Crotia, Corfu Greece, Messina Sicily Italy, Sorrento Italy, Rome Italy, Florence/Pisa Italy, Monte Carlo Monaco, Marseille France, Barcelano Spain.
On Thursday, we will disembark and stay 4 nights in Barcelano. (longest trip we've ever made - and probably ever will make - in our lives! :)

We would love to have some help with:
1. Venice - where to stay, what to see and do, restaurants, tour guides, etc. (esp. where to stay.)
2. Ports of call - highlights, suggested tours and local tour guides, etc.
3. Barcelona - where to stay, what to see and do, restaurants, tour guides, etc. (esp. where to stay.)

We are in our early-to mid-sixties, in pretty good health but not up to strenuous activities (hubby has knee and neck problems so no lifting or climbing, etc.).
We really want this to be a relaxing trip!
And, other than a long-ago trip to London and Paris, we have never been to Europe, so we are not familiar with the public transportation system (thus the reason we would love suggestions re tour guides!)

Any input will really be appreciated!
