Visiting Venice with Kids, Italy

Venice pics We have just got back from Venice Italy with our three childen.We tried venice activities , it was our Venice for kids

We stayed at Venice hotel Residence Corte Grimani. It was situated in an old palace within an old private courtyard away from the coming and going of tourists, and yet in the very center, a 2-minute walk from Saint Mark's Square and from Rialto Bridge. Our venice apartments had a small balcony right over the canal which was on one on the main Gondoliers routes which passed by every few minutes. We just loved having our venice meals overlooking the canal and watching people pass by over Goldoni Bridge and listening to the gondoliers singing.

Venice was very busy by day but much quieter at night.

We bought Venice Card as an easy way to pay in advance for discounted our travel. venice images

Venice Piazza San Marco area is most central, but also most expensive and noisy. All areas of Venice are safe and interesting, and it is a very small city with treasures to be found everywhere and great enjoyment in the wandering and discovery.

We saw Venice Basilica San Marco, the Doge’s Palace, Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, School of St Roch, Ca Rezzonico. Also we visited Accademia Museum, Correr Museum in the buildings surrounding St. Mark's Square, Santa Maria della Salute, Madonna dell Orto, Rialto Bridge,

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is one of the places where the Venice Card got us a price reduction.

We had a Venice gondola ride, we bought venice masks. We hired a small launch and drove ourselves around the venice Lagoon. We introduced our children to the crayon-colored houses on Burano. We took a short waterbus to Lido, there we easily jogged the Lido Beach.

If all else fails there is wonderful bread, cheese and ham which you can buy in the shops. Either way my children (aged 13, 11 and 8) loved Venice and the lack of child friendly food didn’t bother them too much. Alla-Madonna is a very popular venice restaurant. They had an extensive menu and always they had something my children eat. Everyone restaurant serves pasta, but not everyone serves pizza. Venice Pizzeria alla Strega was full of kids, especially at lunch time. They served excellent venice pizzas and the children loved the Halloween décor. Many locals also dined there and we often saw them there with their families.

There are a number of restaurants in Campo san Margherita. The square is filled with Venetian families at passegiata and the kids are all running round playing. It is just a delightful family atmosphere. We have had reasonable venice food at outdoor tables there and just enjoyed the situation. It does mean that if the kids are getting restless they can move about safely; maybe even get to play with the other kids. It is reasonable, family food in a good setting.

The food at Al Nono Risorto was great, and we could get venice pizzas as well as other stuff, plus it was the best value place we ate at.

With my children our venice trip was full of happy memories and ve full of venice tourist information. There were a lot of venice things to do. We loved Venice kids, the children loved it - what more can I say!
