Venice with 12 yr. old

Jump to last reply

Grandma and Ariel are off to Italy! At almost 12 she's been looking forward to Venice with great anticipation--I've hired a private guide for 4 hours to provide a sense of history, and culture for selected sights. How can I best use this time? A good guide can make it come alive! We have 4 days to wander, I've been there before and don't want to overwhelm her with museums etc., she'll be back! Suggestions for her age much appreciated!

She is outdoorsy, a voracious reader, has taken cooking lessons with me for 8 mo., and has willingly taken on "homework assignments" to prepare for the trip.

We will stay near San Marco, she wants to go to Murano, a mask making shop, of course the Basilica and campanile, and take a gondola ride. I was thinking Ca Rezzonico and Palazzo Mocenigo, and the smaller art museum (whose name I can't locate) that shows the development of art through the ages. She will be back again, this is just to give her a taste. We also have Florence (2 nights), Sorrento (4 nights) and Rome (3 nights) if you have more to share. Thank you!
