Hi all!

We got our tickets to Sagrada Famalia for the day before our cruise. We got tickets to the church and tower. How much time should we allow for the tour?

Thanks.

If you are doing the guided tour allow an hour. Tower 30 minutes to an hour depending how detailed you are.

This is our 2nd DCL sailing -- we did the 10 day Med cruise the summer of 2011. It was such an amazing trip, we can't wait to go back, especially with Venice now in the mix!

One question... on my last trip, because Tunisia was pulled from our itinerary and replaced with Sicily, all onboard purchases were subject to an 18% VAT tax. Forgive me if you guys have already discussed this at length, but I was wondering if this sailing would be subject to that tax again?

Anyway, I love this board -- some people I met here -- and later met on the ship -- have become dear friends. Glad to finally have a minute to check in.

xo
I have a DD (8) as well! I'm so excited to see all of the children who are close to Lisa's age.

I noticed last week that my flights are filling up fast. We are flying Delta on June 24 from Atlanta and returning on July 11. Any body else on either of these flights?

Malta

What is everyone doing in Malta? We did not see any port adventures that seemed exciting. Any ideas?

We re doing private guide and driver for our first stop there, and then just going around on our own the 2nd time. I just posted in our blog about Valletta and have a couple of links there that might be helpful.

Be sure to check out St. John's Cathedral in Malta dedicated to the order of knights who ruled the island. The graves of the knights are right in the floor of the church and each country from which the knights hailed from has their own smaller alter off to the sides. Really a beautiful church and they tell the story of a bomb falling through the roof and rolling around the floor without exploding....

Unfortunately St. John's Cathedral is closed when we are there.
On the Disney Magic 12 Night Venice Cruises - the St. John's Co-Cathedral is closed. A visit to the National Museum of Archeology will be substituted:

Oh so sorry to hear that. The little musuem attached had some great artwork as well as the marble in laid crypts on the floor of the knights are something to behold. I wish that during the heavy tourist season(s) that places in Europe would stay open all week but I'm sure they say "we have done it this way for years and why change now?"

We are doing Florence on Your Own and trekking off to the Uffizi. I found the Uffizi gallery page on line and they list the paintings by room. I chose 1 or 2 paintings from each room, copied the image and printed them on small pocket-sized cards on a ring. As we enter each room, I give her a card and she has to find the painting. When she shows me the painting, I will give her a small monetary gift to put in a little pouch and she gets to add the card to a ring that she will be wearing. At the end of the museum visit, she can use that money in the gift shop. Now to come up with fun games for the rest of the ports.
Sounds awesome! I have a DD 8 too! What wonderful ideas!!!

You all are just so full (and willing to share) so much information!!
In doing my research reading and online, it seems that taxis are pretty affordable in Rome the quickest way to get around being that we will only have 4 hours of free time. So that is what I settled on!
