Italy Shore Excursions

Cruising the Mediterranean can be an unforgettable experience, but – as pretty as the scenery is from the boat – it’s when you get ashore that the real magic begins. That’s why hiring a guide for your shore excursion in Italy makes so much sense.

Not only can you often save money compared to your cruise line’s shore excursions, but you also have a much wider selection. Many guides will work with you to personalize your shore excursion, so you see exactly what interest you, instead of the lowest common denominator, checklist-approach of larger tours.

If you feel like really getting the most from your limited time on shore, trade the cruise line’s tour bus for a minibus or private car, and you’ll take your shore excursion to a whole new level! You will have the chance to drive where large buses can’t go, letting you see more, walk less, and escape the crowds. Plus, if you pass something you want to take a better look at, your guide will be happy to stop.

Depending on where your ship docks, you can choose a shore excursion that will reveal the highlights of Pisa and Florence and the Tuscan countryside. Or perhaps the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii.

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the history and sightseeing, work with your guide to create you own shore excursion. Maybe a private shopping tour of a gigantic mall outside of Rome is your idea of a perfect holiday memory. Or, take a shore excursion to visit some of the famous Sicilian villages from the filming of the Hollywood blockbuster trilogy, The Godfather.
