The kid-friendly appeal of a vacation in Venice is clear — children are drawn to water, and the mystery of a city built right on it will immediately grab their attention. Some of the best activities for families here include gondola rowing lessons, mask making classes and scavenger hunts that will lead you down the maze-like streets that crisscross the city. Consider adding a day or two to explore islands like Murano and Burano, and see what makes these unique islands as delightful as Venice itself. For some families, a luxury hotel right in the heart of Venice’s energy is important; others seek kid-friendly resorts that serve as a refuge from the crowds and frenzy. Engage a Ciao Bambino Advisor who knows the ins and outs of both options to make your accommodation hunt easier.

The places where we stayed were exactly what I was looking for. I valued Katie’s patience with me as I was building my trip and deciding what exactly we were looking for as a family.
