I am helping a friend of mine plan her itinerary for their family cruise in July. They will be flying into Venice July 10th where they will board their ship (Celebrity Summit) and the ship will be docked overnight until 4 pm the next day (7/11).
There will be a total of 14 family members taking this cruise, w/ 8 grandchildren ranging in ages from 11-19) and 6 adults. My friend has been to Venice before but would like some suggestions for places to show the grandchildren. I think a gondola ride would be expensive for 14 so would the water taxi be an alternative and where would the taxi take them? Is it possible to negotiate a group rate for 14 if they can do the gondola?
What other suggestions would anyone have for what to do on the 2nd day where they would have until 4 pm to sightsee? They would probably only have the afternoon of the first day to sightsee.
Any suggestions and websites would be appreciated.
