2.Exclusive Best of Rome
3.Athens and Cape Sounion with lunch

This is on the 12 day Mediterranean and Greek Isle cruise. We have never been to Europe before. What do you think?

Capri can be done without booking an excursion thru the cruise ship. The ships dock right next to the ferry/hydrofoils that take you to Capri. Once you get to Capri, rent a car/driver (cost us $100 for 4 people) to take you all over the island and to a restaurant for lunch.

Florence can also be done on your own -- take the train to/from Livorno, get yourself a good map of the city, and decide what you want to see. Use the cruise ship's itinerary as a guide.

What ship are you going on, and when, and how many people?

we are also going on Brilliance of the Seas but to Venice. Here is our plan:
1. Barcelona, on our own since we will be staying there for a few days before the trip
2. Nice, on our own. I have read that you can take the train very easily to Monte Carlo
3. Livorno, two excursions with RCCL: Pisa and The Scenic Drive and wine tasting. To my husband it is a priority he goes to a wine tasting event in Florence.
4. In Rome, Imperial Rome
5. Naples, on our own. I have read that you can easily take the hydrofoil to Capri. I am not too sure about it yet, but we might change our minds and book the Island of capri with lunch with RCCL. We'll see....
6. Venice, on our own since we have two days to explore. I definetely want to take a gondola ride, a priority to me.
7. Croatia, on our own.
8. Corfu, excursion with RCCL - Paleokastritsa, Lakones, Kassiopi, Nissaki & Kerkyra
