Venetian Colors and Masks: A Family Friendly Tour for Kids
If you are planning a holiday with your kids and want a unique family experience, you have to visit Venice and choose one of our tours especially designed with kids of all ages in mind. The tour is a sightseeing tour from their unique perspective and viewpoint. It involves full participation from the kids, as well as the family and stimulates their creativity.
Venice is the perfect place for kids of all ages, where they can happily and freely run, as well as explore with their families. During this tour, older and younger children spend time playing in activity camps, where they can play ball, paint with chalks, etc. After enjoying the activity camps, families and their children will start their walking tour at one of Venice’s most popular camps for kids, San Giacomo Camp. Next, we will walk along Accademy’s bridge, which is one of the 4 bridges that passes through the Canal Grande and up to Rafts’ Basis, the most southern tip of Venice. Here, we will stop for delicious ice cream. Throughout the entire walking tour, the kids will have an opportunity to earn rewards for answering questions as they learn about the history of Venice, as well as the secret passages they may encounter.
After the pleasant stop for ice cream, we will continue our tour to San Margherita Camp for more fun activities for the kids to do. We will then head over to the Carlo Goldoni House, which is a magical and theatrical place. Families and their children will be able to experience and see an amazing world of Venetian masks. There is no limit to the depths of one’s imagination.
From the surreal world of Venetian masks, we will dive and jump back into real life to experience the extraordinary Rialto Market. Here you will find and have an opportunity to experience, as well as see the most diverse selection and variety of multi-colorful foods, as well as masks. After the Rialto Market, we will head back to San Giacomo Camp.

Our trip was something I thought would be cool to experience for us, and it turned out to be better than I anticipated. That’s why I like to share my experience with others. My brother-in-law's family had never been to Venice, or Italy and my daughter wanted to spend her summer break with her twin cousin sisters, Ruth and Natalya. Then we planned a family tour to Venice.
I have traveled extensively with my daughter and was always searching for wonderful child friendly guides, who could capture my daughter's attention, who would make it interesting and meaningful too. We loved our trip to Venice. Our tour guides (Cristiana and Roberta) were really wonderful. They were easy going, knowledgeable, and also passionate. They treated our kids in such a way that they became friends of them.
We loved our trip to Venice. I asked each of the kids to tell me their favorite parts of the trip and this is what they had to say. Ruth’s favorite was visiting the Colosseum which is the most iconic landmark in the city. She wanted to film as much footage as she could while she was there because it was such a cool setting. Mayra’s favorite one was throwing coins in Trevi Fountain.
Natalya’s favorite was walking up the Spanish Steps and taking in the views of the city at the top. We ventured to the National Archaeological Museum. It was mind-blowing. What an awesome sight to see for the kids. I was surprised to see how interested they were in the Roman architecture. It was very peaceful and mind provoking. We had the best guides ever, because they made sure that we were well aware of the historical value behind everything we experienced.
The Vatican was amazing, too. Thanks a lot Cristiana and Roberta, as well as “Venice Tours with kids” company for making our holiday such special and comfortable. We learned interesting facts and were able to breeze through these parts of our planned sightseeing and this made it possible to do so much more with our limited time in this glorious city. Venice really is an amazing space to wander around. It’s this ancient space that you can be in, touch, and explores; I recommend trying “Venice Tours with kids” for private tours of Venice those who have kids.
