Default Shore excursions-Mediterranean Cruise

Will be on Princess Mediterranean cruise. What are best shore excursions for Athens, Kudasi, Istanbul, Mykonos, Naples, Rome, Florence? Don't want to book with cruise liner. How safe are the operators to take private excursions with other shipmates from our cruise?

I can give u a few tips for Rome and Florence. We used a company called Romeinlimo for both Rome and Florence/Pisa. They will meet u at the port; they have airconditioned minivans; they will take u to more places than the ships escursions; they stop for bathroom breaks, atm's, picture taking; plus they can get in very close to all the sights; whereas the larger buses from the ship have to park blocks away. In Rome u will see Colisium, Vatican, Forum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Ruins, and lunch. In Florence u will visit Pisa/gift shops, in Florence u will see the cathedral, art museum, lunch, gelato(yum), and several other nice sights. In Kudiasi, we visited Ephasus, the site where the Apostle Paul preached for three years. There are a lot of beautiful archelogical digs in Ephasus, which in the Bible is known as Pauls letters to the Ephisians. Kudiasi is the port town and there are lots of shops right at the port.
