  1. Thank you everyone for all of your insight and suggestions. Cruisemom, I agree with you. Comfort level and touring style plays a huge role in how one experiences destinations. I am quick, agile and love walking and taking public transit around and seeing as much as I can in the time allowed. I work in the travel industry, travel often and am comfortable in foreign counties. Besides, I need to walk off all the cruise food in ports :) The travel style of DIY and cram in as much as possible is not for everyone. I wholeheartedly agree if this is someones first time in a city and they are not comfortable on their own, a guided tour is the way to go.
  2. Good to hear. I was going to pre-purchase tickets. Were you able to visit other sites and have time to eat lunch too? Luckily we are there in November.
  3. Thank you Euro and Wheezedr, both with great info and insight. I probably should not kill myself trying to do both and soak in a little more of one place or the other. I know I will be back, so no worry there. I probably will stick to ancient Rome and the Colosseum and leave the Vatican for my next visit. I also do not want to stress myself out with returning to the ship and give myself plenty of time in case of hiccups. Thanks again. I really should not try to conquer all of Rome in a day
  4. Celebrity Constellation is in port on Saturday Nov. 2 from 7am to 7pm. Do you think it is possible to do both the Vatican Museum & Sistine Chapel first thing and then head over to do a Colosseum tour and what else we can fit in before returning via train back to the ship? 2 friends in good shape with no mobility issues and we are good with public transit. Is this possible?
  5. Ahhh, very informative, thank you Hank. It did not even dawn on me that Nov. 1st would be a holiday in France. I know we are going to be in Monte Carlo for Halloween night, so I was poking around to see if anything special was going on for the 31st. Great idea about contacting the Nice Tourist Office, I will work on that right now. Appreciate your insight and alerting me to the holiday. Kristi
  6. Hank, I would love to hear your suggestions of places you enjoy in the region. We will be in port on Nov. 1st from 7am to 5pm, I know not too much time. Planning on doing our own walking tour of Villefranche and taking the city bus into Nice to explore and walk around. We visit Monte Carlo the day before, so we will hit up Monaco and Eze on that port day.
