Cruising around Mediterranean!

HeidiHoHumFebruary 25, 2005

I know I could look into some travel books and I will, but I usually rely on word of mouth for things like this...

My family (me, DH, DS--9 y.o., and DD--7 y.o.) are going on a cruise around the Mediterranean. I would love any hints you could share as to what to see each day while we are in port. We will have about 6 hours in each port with the exception of Greece which will be 12 hours.

Here is our schedule:

depart Genoa, Italy

Naples, Italy

Catania, Italy

Corfu, Greece

Dubrovnik, Croatia

end Venice, Italy

Thanks so much for any advice, opinions, etc!

Dubrovnik is unbelievable and is great for walking as it has no cars. Make sure you take a walk on top of the city walls. They also have wonderful handmade silver jewelry which you'll find in shops as you walk the back streets.

I hope that you have more than 6 hours in Venice as you can't begin to see it in such a short time. Besides things like the newly rebuilt opera house and St. Mark's Square, you should consider seeing the art museum that Peggy Guggenheim created in a former palace. There is a tourist center at the train station where you can get deals on things like cheaper tickets for the water taxis and discounts for multiple museums. Go to Murano, the island where most of the blown glass is created. They also have a museum on the history of glass and some of the pieces are more than 2000 years old. And don't eat at the tourist places...find the little hole in the wall places where the locals go for better prices and better food.
