Suggestions for an arrival day itinerary in Venice- with jetlagged kids

Jump to last reply

Our Italy adventure with the kids (ages 5, 7 and 9) will begin in Venice, when we land at 9:15 am from our transatlantic flight. We have never taken them abroad and I don't really know what to expect, but I'm sure they will be tired! Can anyone offer suggestions on ways to spend that first day? I am assuming we will drop off luggage but will not be able to get into our rooms until the afternoon. I know in Rome and Florence there are outdoor spaces with carousels and/or carriage rides, and hop-on/hop-off buses which would make for an easy day. In Venice, I have no idea. We will be there for 3 nights and can see the major sights on our next two days. For the first day I'd like to get them acclimated and keep them up and entertained until we can have an early dinner and bed. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
