Venice is a city situated on islands. Basic information for parents of children (especially the smaller ones), is that due to the large number of bridges and stairs it's very difficult to get around the city with a trolley. It could be argued that this city is completely unsuitable for trolleys. Therefore, infants should be worn in baby slings or carriers.

Keep in mind also that in Venice there are no cars or traditional taxis. All transportation (even store delivery) is water-based.

Nonetheless, Venice is a city that everyone should see at least once in their lives. While sailing the largest canal in Venice - the Grand Canal you can admire the architecturally interesting buildings - unfortunately, some of them are in really bad condition. The best known of them are:

  • mansion Ca 'd'Oro - Golden House
  • Church of Santa Maria della Salute
  • palace Ca 'Da Mosto.

Grand Canal is shaped like an inverted "S" and flows through the city, dividing it into two parts. The banks are connected by four bridges: The Academy Bridge (Ital. Ponte dell'Accademia), Barefoot Bridge (Ital. Ponte degli Scalzi), Rialto Bridge (Ital. Ponte di Rialto), Constitution Bridge (Ital. Ponte della Costituzione).


It's fun to stand on one of the bridges and watch the gondolas and water buses flowing below.
