We are cruising next May & plan to spend a few days pre cruise in Venice. Any suggestions for need to see things here or in the near vicinity? Any hotel recommendations? What about transfer to the ship without getting one from the cruiseline. Any tour company that is great to book though for excursions in & around Venice? We are just starting to think about what to do while on this cruise & figure we may as well start with the beginning & build out from there. If anyone has done this itinerary on the Millenium & have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
