We saw in a precedent article that Venice is one of the safest place on earth. In fact, in the streets of this gorgeous island, there are no cars, motorcycles or bicycles to care about!

Kids are free to play a lot of games inside the famous campi (small squares) and to draw incredible masterpieces with colourful chalks on the Venetian ground.

It is a very simple game, but is the perfect way to enter in contact with the city, signing their passage in Venice and becoming part of the city itself! Sometimes children draw just some white lines, to play games with other kids, but usually they have more fun painting great and wide compositions with a lot of colours, surprising their parents!

If you were in Venice, what kind of subject would you paint on the ground?

It’s quite hard to get a real impression of Venice before visiting it, especially if you want to visit it with kids!

We want to help you, giving a short list about what you can really expect from Venice when you visit it with your family!

  1. Kids love the idea of a city floating in water… and this is what they will get! The magic of this city is real, and they will feel it from the beginning until the last second of their trip.
  2. It’s grey and decadent. Venice has the charm of a decadent city, but is also colourful and cheerful!
  3. “It’s crowed, so we will have problems with traffic jam”… not at all! Sometimes it’s quite difficult to walk fast because of the crowd, but there are no gridlock. Consequently, you and your beloved can stay our drinking a glass on wine while your kids play safely in the middle of the streets or in the squares.
  4. A big mistake: do not take a water taxi or a gondola ride. Ok, it’s not cheap, but is a perfect relaxed way to see Venice, especially with children: they will love to go inside narrow canals, passing under the bridges!
  5. Searching for home made toys in Venice. There are some workshop specialised in creating beautiful wooden kink knacks, as for example spinning tops.

Saint Mark’s day just passed few days ago, and we celebrated a lot to honour our Saint patron and protector of Venice.

It may sounds odd to you, but this Saint is incredibly important for this city built on water, and now we will discover why. Celebrating Saint Mark we celebrate also the symbol of Venice: the winged lion! It represents the power and the strength of the Republic, capable to protect it from terrible enemies. It’s also a symbol appreciated by kids, so it’s very popular also as a puppy, that will protect children from the evils of the world while they grow up.

We are so lucky to have at just few minutes from our office the best Venetian ice cream!

Nico’s is a traditional ice cream parlour located in the Dorsoduro district, just in front of the Giudecca island. Sitting outside in the private terrace of the bar, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the lagoon, that reveals itself in all its splendour at sunset.

The magic of this place is not just its breathtaking view, but its mostly Nico’s delicious ice creams! The standard flavours are enriched with the unrivalled Gianduiotto: a particular chocolate flavour with a shade of hazelnut. Children love it! In effect, at Nico’s it is possibly to choose also the real Gianduiotto experience: a great piece of chocolate ice cream immersed in a mountain of soft exquisite traditional whipped cream!

Yummy!

If you have kids and you love travelling, it can be difficult to find the ideal place where they can have fun too. Especially in a crowed and touristic city such as Venice!

But here comes our precious tip: Saint Helene gardens, or in Italian, i giardini di Sant’Elena.

In the Castello district, at just 15 minutes walking from Saint Mark’s Square, you will find an oasis of peace & quiet, a green area full of equipments for kids! 

Here you will find picnic spots, sports facilities and two different playgrounds where your kids can have fun, making friends with local children!

In addition to this, the uniqueness of this island is the green environment and the breathtaking view over the lagoon: an unforgettable experience for the whole family!

Everybody knows that Venice is an unusual city, but have you ever wonder about how is to live here as a child? It’s awesome, and here below you will discover all the reasons why.

  • There are no cars: in Venice we have no motorcycle, cycles or cars in our streets, so children can play safely in the campo (square) or in largest calli (streets), as children used to in the past everywhere in the world.
  • Boat rides: to go around, children that lives in the islands have to take the vaporetto (water bus) to join friends or to go to school.
  • Gondola ride: yes, is not just in the movie. Venetian actually use gondolas as means of transportation, but just for shorts rides, as for example join the other part of the canal.
  • Scooter: is the new kids trend in the city. Walking in Venice can be quite fatiguing, so Venetian parents found the perfect solution, ideal also for bridges!
