Murano looks similar to Venice but much quieter. Charming architecture, canals, and bridges make it a relaxing place to stroll. Murano is a great living example of the central role that family and traditions play in a community and history. The history of glassblowing dates back to the Middle Ages and it is brought to us by masters whose fathers and grandfathers have been in this craft. Generations of glass-makers apprenticed their sons and daughters to make sure this precious art survived. Your children imagination run wild as they see artisans creating intricate handcrafted pieces.

Venice islands family day trip proceeds to Burano. This tiny island resembles a Venice in miniature. Stroll along Burano’s vibrant waterways and hidden courtyards. Burano is a picturesque fishing village with a dazzling array of candy colored small houses. Each house has different colors. Legend has it that the fishermen used this to their advantage as the colors helped them navigate their way home through the fog. Burano lace tradition dates back to 1500 but today you can still see old ladies that hand-made lace. Burano is also home to a bell tower that over the years has started to lean. It may not be the Leaning Tower of Pisa but children will enjoy catching a glimpse of this unique bell tower.

Private Transfer to Murano from Venice and from Burano to Venice

ADD ON Private Transfer between Venice, Murano, and Burano
With this optional upgrade travel with your personal guide by private water taxi between Venice, Murano, and Burano.

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).

  • Private Venice Shore Excursion Venice for Children

    Good morning below some answers regarding feedback. Please could you pass on our thanks to Elisabetta we will be sure to catch up with her again when not if we return.
    Our overall Experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was Very good, although a couple of minor points that would have made the tour excellent. The journey from the cruise boat to the real tour starting point in Venice seems a little disorganised and involved us in queuing to get vepretto tickets. This could have been sorted before we arrived or alternatively we could have met in St Marks square which means we did not lose 45 minutes of our 3 hr tour. We thought the gondola tour cost more than we could have got it for on the day although the convenience was great. Elisabetta was great though and made the tour very personal to us. Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was a great introduction to a fabulous city.
