Perks for the Parents

This comfortable 3-bedroom apartment is a 15-minute walk from S. Marco Square in a central but non-touristy part of Venice, with easy transport links on the doorstep and a playground right outside. Inside the only large green park in the city, the house is in front of the Vaporetto stop, with no bridges to cross, and is close to a supermarket open 8am-10pm. The combination of calm location, easy transportation and conveniences nearby makes this a real gem. Pharmacies, a fish and vegetable market, and a bakery are also close by. The hosts can provide anything you need for toddlers and young children.

Why Kids Love it

With no cars and plenty of boats and novelties to look at, Venice itself is a great spot for kids. Kids will particularly enjoy the playground in front of the house - which can be seen from the bedroom window so older kids may be able to play unattended. Inside the house, there is a special corner dedicated to them, with books and toys. If you are travelling with a toddler, the hosts will provide you with everything in order to make you feel comfortable and safe. The house is equipped with a changing table, baby bath, mixer, cradle and more. It’s easy to reach the beach at the Lido, one stop away by boat.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The house has been renovated in 2017 and although it is a building of the XIX century, you will feel in a modern and safe environment. Electrical, gas and water system have been installed according to European law requirements. Note that the bathroom is shower-only. A travel crib can be provided. Crossing bridges with strollers in Venice can be hard work; it’s advisable to pack a baby carrier as well if you are traveling with babies. The hosts can book an easy private transfer service from the airport. The property is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes from Venice Marco Polo airport.

About the Location

The apartment is in central Venice, inside the Giardini della Biennale and just a 15-minute walk from Piazza S. Marco (St Mark’s Square). The public boat can take you to S. Marco in 5 minutes. The Giardini Boat Stop is in front of the house, offering an easy way to explore the city with no bridges to cross and no long walks with your luggage. It is 1 minute from the Vaporetto stop. From the airport you can take the public transportation (Alilaguna, blue line) to Arsenale and walk 10 minutes or take another boat and make one stop to Giardini.

Accommodation Details

This apartment has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and an open plan living space with kitchen and dining area. There is a bathroom with a shower; a baby bath is available. Bedrooms all have kingsize beds and there is a double sofa bed in the living space.

Style Notes

Light and welcoming. This pretty apartment has white walls and simple decor, with an Oriental rug in the living room, a tiled bathroom with large shower head, wooden floors and large mirrors. We love the view through the bedroom window of green trees, the exposed wood beams and the simple muted color scheme throughout.

This apartment has a lovely spot in Venice. Far enough away from the crowds to give you some space to breathe but close enough to walk to all of the main sights in 15-20 minutes. The apartment was very clean and tidy and had everything that we needed to self cater. Catterina was extremely helpful at organising activities for us to do in Venice (booking taxis, museum tours etc.) and we are grateful for all of our help in making our trip to Italy a memorable one.

Venice, Italy

Gondolas and gelato

There’s no question about it: kids will love Venice, the city with canals for roads, gondolas and vaporetti instead of cars and buses, and enough exquisite gelato to keep them going all day. Take kid-friendly tours of art galleries, chase pigeons in St Mark’s Square and take leisurely bike rides along the Lido and its beaches, before refuelling with pizza, pasta and cicchetti.
