This might not be the most popular opinion but Venice, Italy is one of my favorite places for kids. So many people ask: is Venice good to visit with kids? I asked it too and am here to answer YES! Both times we took all of the kids to Italy, Venice wasn’t in the initial plan….
The first time, back in 2018, when I was planning our month in Italy my husband requested Venice. He had never seen it and really wanted to. I vetoed it. I thought it would be hot, crowded and impossible to have 4 kids not fall into a canal get lost or be bored. I also thought there was zero chance you could bring a stroller there. I had been there in college and from what I remembered: it wasn’t a good spot for kids. But, I also felt bad that my husband had never seen it and it was his only request for the trip… so I added it to the itinerary. It ended up being our favorite part of the trip. A lot of it was finding the perfect spot to stay (more of that below) but the kids loved the city and we really had the best time there.
