Today on my home blog:
A few weeks ago I was approached by a friend who is headed to Italy for the first time. She and her family (including four children under 12) will be cruising the Mediterranean, and she wanted to know what I recommend with only one day in each of her Italian ports of call. They also wanted to stay away from the packaged excursions promoted by the tour company.
Cruising is a great way to see the beautiful Mediterranean and coastal life in Italy. However, many cruisers are surprised that their ports of call are so far from the major cities they want to visit (Rome and Florence particularly). If you are like my friend and her family, you may want to avoid the prepackaged cruise line excursions, too. That doesn’t mean, though, that you have to miss the wonders that Italy has to offer. You’ll just need to do a little planning before you go.
