      Venice with children

      Planning a trip to Venice can be difficult at the best of times, and this can be even more daunting if you are planning it with children in mind. It is definitely possible to plan a trip that will keep everyone happy, so here are 5 tips to get you started:

      • Consider alternative accommodation - Hotels and hostels in Venice can fill up fast, and if you are trying to get close to Saint Mark's Square, it can be very busy and crowded and not especially peaceful. Instead of booking a regular hotel, think about renting a private apartment instead. This means that you and the kids have somewhere to come and relax in the evenings away from big crowds and have the chance to relax. You could also consider staying somewhere like the Lido sand bar. This has several family friendly hotels, and provides a bit of space to relax on the beach, while still being close to the main city.
      • Know how to get around - Venice is a fairly walkable city, but if you have kids that might get tired, it is important to know how to get around using water buses. The vaporetti are the most efficient way of getting around the major tourist sites, but you would probably want to get transport cards if you will be using this system often (children under 6 are free, but anybody over that age has to pay the full €7.5 ticket per ride). Consider getting Rolling Venice cards if you want to use the water buses instead of walking
      • Know where the toilets are - If you are exploring the major tourist sites, most of the museums will have well-kept toilet facilities which you should use at every opportunity. Alternatively, most bars will let you use the facilities is you buy something (you could always buy a bottle of water at one of the many bacari), though these facilities are not always the best quality. There are public toilets around signposted by the tell-tale "WC", but you can expect to pay quite a bit of money to use them.
      • Know where to eat out - Due to Venice being part of Italy, it can be easy to keep kids happy with pizza and gelato on every corner. If you are wanting to eat out, most Italian restaurants are very child-friendly and it is not usually a problem to order plain pasta or smaller portions to keep them happy. As for drinks, you will find that juice and soft drinks are fairly expensive, and water will be a must (especially if you are travelling and walking around in summer).
      • Plan what you are going to do - Like most of Italy, Venice is known for its rich art and historical architecture, and this is not always appealing or appreciated by younger children. Here are a few options for things to keep everyone entertained and engaged with this beautiful city:
