Venice Travel Guide

Venice Kids Attractions

With such a rich and diverse cultural history, many would think that Venice would be a dull holiday destination for kids. But on the contrary, this beautiful canal-lined city offers its younger visitors plenty to see and do.

Obviously a ride on one of the famed gondolas will be a memorable experience for children of all ages, and highlights are guaranteed to include spotting the fire fighters'' boat, the ambulance boat and many more. While parents are admiring the architecture in St Mark''s Square, be sure the kids have enough breadcrumbs to feed the hundreds of pigeons this square is known for. Kids will also enjoy the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, as there is lots of space to run around outside, and Parco delle Rimembranze is probably the best-suited park for children in Venice and a great place to head for a picnic or a stroll. For outdoorsy families, a hike or walk in the Po Delta Natural Park is a must.

On rainy days, visit some of the museums this historic city has to offer, such as the Naval Museum or the Museum of Natural History. A trip to the nearby island of Murano is also a must, where children will be mesmerised by the glass-blowers and their incredible creations.
