An informative and fun tour for kids in Venice


Venice is the children friendly city for the simple reason that the are not cars at all, forget then about being watchful all the time on your kids to avoid the risks of moving motor vehicles as in any other 'regular' city.

The water nature of Venice then is a magnet for the attention of our small visitors and the source also for all their questions like how building were built in such a diverse environment and how their local 'colleagues' go to school and so on.

Our tour is designed then to keep the attention of your kids always in a vivid mode and answer their questions using a simple and clear language with the goal of providing them an overall picture of Venice's main facts.

The main features of this tour are the visit of upper terrace of san Marco where some enticing features for kids can be seen, a thrilling boat ride and a visit of a puppet maker artisan workshop.

Itinerary

The tour starts visiting the upper level in saint Mark's basilica where some detailed mockups will let the kids comprehend how the building was built, followed by panels delineating the process of mosaic making to explain how these incredible 'puzzles' were created. Last but not least the guide will also introduce the great bronze horses and how they were made to the family audience. Before leaving the church the family will enjoy both an indoors commanding view of the church and an outdoors view of san Marco square, make sure you'll ask your guide to take a group picture with such a beautiful background!
And now is time to navigate, our private motorboat is ready to start that part of the tour kids will really love. Any tour of Venice won't be complete without moving around through its water ambiance. As the boat goes through the canals the guide is ready to point to the kids all the facts that deserve their attention. The water tour will include one section of the Gran Canal and some of the inner canals.

We were a family of 9 plus 1 baby. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the sights in Venice; she was also very helpful, considerate, and accommodating with her time. We had 4 kids and a baby in this tour. We would give her 5. out of 5, with 5 being the highest rating.
