    Everything I have read says to take a cheap cab ($4-8pp) to Doctors Cave Beach if you are wanting a great day at the beach. After reading everything that is exactly what my hubby and I are doing - jumping in a cab and spending the day at a beautiful beach. Yes you have to be aware of your surroundings, but you have that everywhere.... even at home. Agree on a price ahead of time and only give that amount after getting out of the cab - (if you are worried). I wouldn't stay on the ship and miss a great beach because of scare tactics. Ask around and see if you can share a cab with others on your ship as well. That's what we did at another island... ended up being cheaper too.
  2. Thanks everyone for your advice!! This gives me a good idea of where to start.
  3. Would love to get your help on any planning data for Messina and Malta! Been to all the other Italy ports... but those I need some help with. Thanks in advance!
  4. We have been all over Italy but have never made it to Messina. Our cruise also goes over to Valletta. Wondering if anyone who has been to either of these ports can make some suggestions. These are the only ports I'm troubled by what to do. We are not ones to take the cruise line excursions. Prefer small tours or DIY. And no our roll call has not started any tour sharing yet. Thanks in advance!
  5. We used https://www.motoscafivenezia.it/en/ last May. My hubby and I took it by ourselves to our Airbnb and back to the airport. Very good company. Booked before we left. There is no other way to enter Venice then in a private water taxi. Even after 13 hour of traveling we were energized by the experience. So glad we chose to spend the money and do it right!
  6. We did the Naple-Ravello-Amalfi-Positano drive with a tour group of 8 people in 2015 and it was great. I would not suggest adding Capri in to the mix. Last May my hubby, sister and BIL stayed in Sorrento and drove to the Salerno ferry and did the ferry from Salerno-Amalfi-Positano and back. We didn't want to bother with the drive for a day trip. LOVED the ferry. The view from the road was great, but the views and the experience from the ferry was amazing!! And cheap! I would totally recommend taking the train to Salerno if you can do it that way and doing the ferry ride! Highlight for sure! We had no problem with ferries running late. Just make sure you buy your tickets early. We got off the ferry and bought the next leg right away so it didn't sell out.
