Venice Vacation with Kids
A Venice vacation for families is truly a one-of-a-kind experience! No cars, entirely on water, and, even better, everything is accessible by boats and gondolas! Plus, there’s an abundance of art and history for kids to explore in this unique city. Tour the famous Murano Glass Blowing Factory, for example, and you can see glass blowing demonstrations. Or, attend a masquerade mask-making workshop to learn all about Venetian carnival traditions. (Afterward, kids will be able to make their own special masks!) Also, visit the Aqua Alta Bookstore to explore Venice’s charm among the rows of books and comics. (Many are in English!). Other sight-seeing opportunities include the famous Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, which is also the oldest in the city. And, when it comes time for souvenirs, the ever-popular Rialto Market will have everything you need!
For a nice day trip, however, consider taking a short water taxi ride to the nearby island of Lido, which features a beach lined with colorful cafes and restaurants. Soak up the sun and then head back to Venice to continue your amazing adventure. With so much to explore during your Venice vacation for families, children will have the time of their lives here!
