venice

Jump to last reply

we are travel newbs planning a couple days in Venice before boarding a ship to cruise back to South Africa. We are 7 people, including my 78 yr old father in law (cant walk far) and my 10 yr old daughter. We have an evening, a full day, and a morning to explore Venice before boarding.

I'm looking for
* accommodation.... CHEAP (we are travelling on a very weak Rand) within walking distance of the major sights in Venice and the water taxis.
*info on best way to get 7 ppl plus luggage from airport to accommodation.
*info on how to get 7 ppl plus luggage from accommodation to harbour
*suggestions on free and cheap things to see and do in Venice.

I have been googling, but it's quite overwhelming - there is SOOOO much info, and personal recommendations are always better than advertiser's splurbs.... ;-) Also, if I get this wrong and make bad choices, I will even *more* unpopular with my in-laws .....

Can anyone offer me suggestions? (this is for Oct 2016, btw)
thanks,
Alice
