We wasted too much time at the People Square figuring our way around. Guide should have taken us directly to the main sites there. Maps were very poor. Time was not managed well and wished we would at least stopped at the Colosseum to take pictures. Would be willing to skip lunch to see more. Traffic and crowds were really bad too.
Don't Miss: The Vatican& Sistine Chapel, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain
Sign up NOW for the Santa Margherita, Portofino & Camogli excursion. It was the best excursion and sold out immediately for those trying to sign on after boarding the ship. These small villages/cities are as beautiful as any post card. Didn't see Savona but didn't miss it. Great little buys as well.
Don't Miss: Must see Portofino, Santa Margherita, and Camogli. Real Italy!
Loved this city, just not enough time. Takes about 20-30 minutes from the port to the city center and waterbuses from Murano didn't run as often as they originally said. Gondola was fun, but St Mark's Cathedral and Square was great. Also having dinner on the Grand Canal at a sidewalk cafe was wonderful.
Don't Miss: Cafes on the Grand Canal, gondola ride and St. Mark's Cathedral and Square
Skip the Monastery tour unless you like Chopin history. Would have liked to see more of Valldemossa and Soller. Felt we were just driven through in order to catch the train ride which was OK but nothing exciting.We could have skipped this port and spent another day in Venice or Rome.
Don't Miss: Can't really say there was anything that really struck me as a "must see".
