Venice kids tours

Inspired by family holidays, we created this exclusive “Venice kids tours” to make sure your children have just as much fun as you do while exploring this ancient city. It starts from the main historical site of Venice: San Marco square with the interiors of San Marco church, the terrace view and the superb bronze horses from ancient Greece.
We’ll then set off for a walk off the beaten path with a few stops for gelato or a mask making atelier. We can later can zoom off on a private boat for a ride through Venice’s waterways and the Grand Canal, or alternatively head to the Rialto Bridge on foot where you’ll be met by a traditional Venetian puppet master. This tour lasts three hours.
Come and join us on a discovery walk through Venice especially designed for children!
With all its boats, canals, islands, ancient mansions and mysterious alleyways, this labyrinth-like city looks like a big fantasy world. On this tour, after the traditional visit to St. Mark’s Square – inhabited by pigeons, winged lions, golden horses and other creatures – we’ll board a private boat for one hour along the canals, taking pictures while learning about how a city was built on water.
The guide will use simple words and introduce a few basic concepts that will enable our younger guests to understand how Venice was created, developed through the centuries and why it ended up being such a rich merchant city
We will complete our visit exploring the calm and evocative back streets and squares of Castello or Dorsoduro, where we’ll find the time to stop for a yummy gelato.
We‘ll be sure to include some Venetian history as well: Venice seems like a theme park, but the magic lies in the fact that it’s actually real!
After the Venice kids tours you can choose to enjoy your hands-on workshop and learn how to paint your own mask from a real mascarer, one of the skilled artisans who still create original Venetian masks in their ateliers located all over Venice.
Highlights: San Marco square and its building, interior of San Marco church, stop at a mask atelier, one hour water tour Grand Canal and minor canals or puppet master workshop visit
