Glide along the Canals by Private Water Taxi

ADD ON One Hour Private Guided Motor Boat Ride.
With this optional upgrade guests have their own exclusive private motor boat, a separate boat driver and a separate tour guide for a total of 2 professional people at disposal for 60 minutes to experience Venice waterways in comfort and style.

Note to parents with small children: Although Venice is a wonderful place to visit it is not the most stroller friendly place. This beautiful city has the singular characteristic of being built on water and consequently there are no cars, lots of bridges, and lots of sidewalks along the canals. While there are many positive aspects of being in a city with no cars, it is not easy to get around with strollers as everything is cobblestone and you need to go up and down bridges constantly. Taking a child in a stroller will involve a significant amount of lugging the stroller up and then going down, over each bridge. Consider putting young children in a backpack carrier whenever possible.

When you contact our family vacation consultants let us know as much about your children interests in order to make the experience as interesting as possible for them.

Those traveling between November and March may wish to bring rubber boots in preparation for Venice’s acqua alta (high water).

A little advance preparation in learning about the city will reward you and your family with a very enjoyable visit. To enhance the experience, Nancy Aiello Tours suggests children books so that you can prepare for the trip.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Custom Rome Amalfi Coast Family Trip Package

    Rachel,
    I want to thank you for arranging tours that made our trip to Rome and the Amalfi Coast so incredibly memorable. Laura, our Rome guide, is just the best. She knew how interested we were in art history, and went over and above to make sure we saw everything. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and a lot of fun. We also used two drivers. Fabio, in Rome, worked so well with Laura. Then, in Amalfi, Luigi took us on the coastal drive. What a great way to experience this area; one we had not previously visited. We will look forward to using your tours on the next trip to Italy! We can’t thank you enough for putting our tours together.

  • Rome Luxury Family Tour Package

    Our overall experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was fabulous. I can’t say enough good about the entire experience. So worth the money and the tours helped make our trip memorable and want us to return. Luccianna was great with my boys and had a wealth of knowledge. One of my sons even said “I can see why she is a tour guide, she knows how to ask me questions that make me interested!” I love that she did that – asked them questions and not just tell them facts but give them the why behind a fact. Also our driver, Christiano, from the airport was great too. He stopped at an ATM machine at our request and then offered to get us some espressos too. Those were much needed that morning.
    Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was fantastic. I would highly recommend Nancy Aiello Tours. The confirmation email was filled with the details I needed and wanted and the people selected were great. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours reading other parents’ blogs and lots of Google searching. All other reviews were great too. Thanks,

    Hi Rachel,
    Just writing to say that we enjoyed very much having Silvia as our tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and we also enjoyed spending time with her. I would like to have Silvia’s email address to send her a personal note of thanks.
    Would it be possible to write to her? If not, please be sure to tell her–once again–that we enjoyed each tour and all the time we spent with her. She made our trip to Rome even more special! (We told her in person…but we thought you should also know what a great job she did. She is a special and wonderful person and extremely adept at her job.)
    Thanks for all of your help in planning this trip. My mother was truly delighted and so was I.
