Venice for Families
When it comes to traveling with your family, Venice is a great European city to explore. From water buses in the early evening to the sculpture garden at Peggy Guggenheim's house, Venice offers plenty for children to do. Best of all, the experiences on offer here will appeal to parents as much as kids: Activities such as taking tea at the Danieli or an evening trip down Venice's Grand Canal will satisfy the whole family.

A Taxi to the Airport

Large arrow left

Total indulgence and indefensible extravagance, this one. But if you really want to impress your 13-year-old companion, you can't do better than secretly order a water taxi to your hotel. After several experiences of dragging our cases around the water buses, and over the steps of bridges, I'd had enough and decided we would head back to the airport the speedy, sophisticated way. Niambh's face as she realized that this sleek, hazelnut-colored speedboat was our ride home was a picture, and worth the ludicrous cost alone. Yes, it was more than 100 euros, but for a half-hour ride, with the wind in our hair and the Venice skyline rapidly diminishing behind us, it was worth it.
