You can go to Venice with a child. Yes, at first glance, present the city, the most inappropriate for traveling with children, rather than Venice. Here and in fact there are no entertainment specially created for children. But finding the children not so and difficult. We have a few ideas on this topic.

I will try to tell about the various options for lessons for children of different ages, and make a decision, whether to go to Venice with children, you yourself.

  • Water parks in Venza

When it is better to go

First of all, remember that go with the child in Venice Best of all in the period from late spring to September , That is, when heat (though, in June, July and August in the city there is a heat).

Baby playing you relaxing outdoors. At the exit from the park there is a lot of cafes where you can eat and eat tightly.

Their stops are marked with a sign indicator name with the words "Al Traghetto".

Resting on the beach or in the water park

In the summer, God himself ordered to go to the beach.

Lido Island, What is opposite the islands of the main Venice, famous for its beaches. There are many of them here. Pay-owned. But from the south and from the northern ends There are public beaches. There you will pay only for a sun bed and an umbrella, and You can not pay ; disseminate your towels or bedspread and enjoy water and sun.

Baby feed

San Marco Square – a unique place to entertain a child of any age. First-invoor, Pigeons.

A few years ago, I traded the food for pigeons here, later this trade was forbidden. But the pigeons tourists are still fed. Sometimes it turns into a whole attraction: Pigeons San Marco have long been put down so that they became almost manual.

What to do on a walk

Going to walk around the city, offer your stay or Chadam to play in "Fortune": Search, for example, images of a winged lion St. Mark I Recall them chairs.

Lions of all types and masters in Venice An unnecessary amount. The prize can be a photo you will do, Having searched the child on a stone lion at the Cathedral of St. Mark. These lions there are already two (they are on the left of the entrance to the cathedral). Children crawl over them, lions are clutch noses, Magnifying wish.

Other travel game ; "Navigator", when Your baby (naturally, he should already be 5-6 years old) decides himself where to go, Where to roll and what to see, and leads a family team.

Zakolekov, turns, dead end in Venice, not count, sooner or later you will go somewhere, moreover, the horizontal color signs will tell you where to go to go to people. There will be a child to play, you will play, but the monitoring of the situation will remain in your jurisdiction.

Here is perhaps the whole list Entertainment for children in Venice.
