Walking from the ship to St. Marks Square - about 30 min. but worth it to experience the wonderful atmosphere of the streets, bridges, shops, and piazza's along the way. A gondola ride is a must, but certainly over-rated so don't be disappointed.
Don't Miss: An evening of dining/wine near the Rialto Bridge-St. Mark's Square

A very big city with many sites. Best to go somewhere specific rather than wondering around. Very busy everywhere.

A beautiful ancient city awaits - a walk around the ancient wall (about 2 KM - 45 min. around), is a must with beatiful vistas everywhere
Don't Miss: The Ancient City

Pompeii, Sorrento, Isle of Capri - A must to see for the first time, but a very long day if travelling with kids
Don't Miss: A guided trip to Pompeii

Florence is a place you can't miss. The city is absolutely jammed with museums, art, and beautiful architecture.
5 out of 5
Cannes, Monaco, Monte Carlo is amazing
Don't Miss: If you've never been to Monte Carlo don't miss out

Taormina is worth the trip, and a canoli at one of the cafe's is a definate

Pros: The diversity of the ports visited

Cons: Another Sea Day would have been nice

Recommends Carnival Freedom? Yes!
