Tour Description
Our most popular family tour in Venice, this three-hour Venice for kids tour uses lions—the symbol of Venice—to trace a route in and around the Rialto and San Marco areas.  Our experts will introduce the children on the tour to the idea of symbols in a cityscape and why the lion in particular is peppered all over Venice. The tour includes St. Mark's Square, Rialto Bridge, and other spots in the city center.

We’ll begin our tour with a visit to Saint Mark's, where we will start counting the lions—children usually love to compete and see who finds the most lions on the itinerary! En route to the Rialto Bridge and the colorful fish market, we will learn more about this fascinating city and search for its emblems on various buildings. While discussing its history, we may have the opportunity to cross the canal with a traghetto ride, which is how the locals travel. 

As an orientation to the city, the Venice for kids tour will vary based on the expertise of the guide, since each will incorporate their hidden treasures to enhance your experience. Either way, your children will come away with an excitement for and knowledge of Venice. Looking for more to do in Venice with kids? Try our Venice in the Renaissance Tour for Kids.

About You

In order to plan the best possible experience for your children, it would be helpful for us to know some background. Have they traveled to other countries in the past? If so, where? Have they studied any subjects in school that would relate to the walk? Are they interested in art, music, a certain historical period or figure? The more you can tell us, the better.

What is a private tour?
Our private tours are limited exclusively to travelers in your party. They are designed to provide a learning experience that is completely tailored to you and your traveling companions. Private tours give you more flexibility with scheduling (you decide when the walk best fits in your trip), the ability to tailor your itinerary (we'll work to match the itinerary to the interests and dynamics of your group), and more personalized time with your guide.

Eireann was amazing. When we arrived she knew all our kids’ names and interests by heart, engaged them immediately, and built our tour around things we’d all find interesting. When one of our party started struggling with the July heat she put health and safety first and quickly adjusted plans to find cool and shade. We were so pleased with our experience.
Sarah was terrific and knowledgeable. Our kids ages 15,11,10,8 all enjoyed and learned, as did we (the parents). Thank you for bringing Venice history to life!
