Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Attractions like Canal Grande and Ponte di Rialto make great kid-friendly stops. Take a break from Venice with a short trip to Arena di Verona in Verona, about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Piazza San Marco, explore the world behind art at Gallerie dell'Accademia, admire the landmark architecture of St Mark's Campanile, and appreciate the history behind Punta della Dogana.
