We are planning on taking the European Cruise in 2013 the Venice route. The itinerary says that the boat stops in La Spezia for Florence, and Pisa. On a map it looks far away. Has anyone previously taken this cruise and give me an estimate of what time it takes to actually arrive at the cities? I have the same question about Civitavecchia which is suppose to be Rome. Looks like a far distance from city to city but I'm geographically challenged as my DH likes to point out. Thanks for any information you can provide.
