How to Spend 1 Day in Venice with Kids

gondola ride in venice

Riding the gondola is one the top things to do in Venice with kids. We did not waste time and hopped on one right away. 

Flytographer Photo Shoot in Venice

I love doing vacation photography with Flytographer because it’s fairly affordable and it takes the pressure off me to get “good” photos. We did our Venice family photoshoot at the Rialto Bridge. 

Family Friendly Venice City Tour

We went on a fantastic Venice City tour. Our fabulous tour guide shared so many interesting things about Venice. 

Tour to Burano and Murano

We took a nice boat ride to Murano where we got to experience a glass-blowing demonstration by a Venetian master glass blower.

Tour to Burano and Murano

We got to see a lady handmake some lace and learned how long it takes to handmake some of the traditional Burano lace pieces.

Libreria Acqua Alta

Something on our Venice bucket list was to visit the Libreria Acqua Alta (aka the Cat Library). It’s a really cool used book store in Venice that has all sorts of hidden treasures.

Dinner at Rosso Pomodoro

We had traditional Napoli-style pizza at Rosso Pomodoro. They have a pretty extensive menu that includes pizza, pasta, salads, and desserts.
