Taking your kids to Europe is a wonderful way to expose them to new cultures. Here are some tips for the cities of Venice and Athens to make it even more enjoyable for them. After all when the kids are happy, the parents are too!
Choose the right tours. The majority of kids do not rank museums and tours as their activity of choice. But, if you choose the right tour and guide it can really help connect your children to the area. Bliss Travel Service can assist you with booking the right types of tours. Here are some examples:
Kids don’t like to wait in line so make sure you plan ahead. In Venice if you plan on going up St Mark's Bell Tower or inside St Mark’s Basilica, have Bliss Travel Service purchase your skip the line tickets in advance. These are TRUE skip the line tickets that allow entry via a different door. The only rub is that you have a 10 minute window to use them. You choose the time frame.
Kids and adults are the same in that we all love good eats. Venice is a child foodie’s dream! Spaghetti, pizza, and gelato, well, it doesn’t get any better than that. Be sure to allow your child to indulge! In Athens the gyros usually go over quite well. Fresh pita stuffed with French fries and seasoned tender chicken or beef? Yes please. If you come across the Hans and Gretel ice cream shop you can’t pass up their bubble waffle cone.
What kid doesn’t like to wander? Venice is the best city to wander in and ‘get lost’. Since you are surrounded by water it’s impossible to truly get lost although you may feel that way at times. Explore the carnival mask shops, ride a gondola, and oh did I mention they have gelato? The Plaka district in Athens is especially fun at night to wander with tiered landscaped restaurants, street music, chocolate walls, shopping, and the Parthenon light up at the top of the Acropolis.
