Buongiorno, come stai
You fall in love with Venice. Can't tell you why but it happens. We had seven grandparents and kids which was a great number. Education:
History of the building of the city
History of the populating of the city
Gondola construction, forkula construction
Making and then eating tiramisu
Gugggenheim Art Museum guided tour
Visit by an American with her 9 year old daughter relating what it is like to live in Venice
Day trip to Padua, churches and University
The tour leader was great at squeezing in additional events and kept us moving.
The education we received from all of the foregoing visits was 1st class and thorough.
The hotel was located near two boat (thats the way you get around) stations. Personnel at hotel were pleasant and assisted us many times.
We learned a small bit of Italian.
A great educational experience for both children and grands. Highly recommend. Granddaughter already wants to go back.
By far the best intergenerational program I have attended.
