Most popular areas in Venice for family-friendly hotels

Venice isn’t just for romantic couples looking to stare dreamily out over the lagoon. It’s just as magical for families, and there’s no shortage of hotels perfectly suited to those bringing along their kids. If convenience is at the top of your list of priorities, you can opt for a hotel in the central San Marco and San Polo quarters, which will mean you can take tired children back to their beds within minutes of finishing a day’s sightseeing. If peace and serenity is what you’d prefer, try Cannaregio, where you’ll feel like a real Venetian.

The most popular things to do in Venice

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is for seasoned art lovers and families alike. Kids will adore the sculpture garden, where flamboyant statues sit amid trees and benches, close to the grave site of Peggy Guggenheim’s many dogs. The art inside the house is incredible as well, including vast colorful works by big names like Picasso and Pollock. On a sunny afternoon, take the whole clan to the Lido, that sandy stretch which has drawn celebrities, writers, and artists for generations. For staggering views across the whole of Venice, take a trip up to the top of St Mark’s Campanile, which stands proudly in St Mark’s Basilica, and has been replicated in cities across the world. Then, come nightfall, take a magical gondola trip – the atmosphere of an evening’s exploration of the canals will excite every member of the family.

Best ways to get around Venice

The best tip for traveling in Venice is to ensure everyone in your group has their comfy shoes with them. You’ll be doing a lot of walking in this car-free city, and that’s a good thing. The streets themselves are a major attraction here, with their weathered grandeur sure to beguile everyone who walks through. You can also take a ride on a waterbus to get over to other islands, and that too can be a part of the fun of visiting this unique, watery realm.
