Venice for kids, a creative and active experience with Isabella

Family&kids tour, a creative and active experience


This creative and active tour is perfect for families with young ones because kids are involved in hands-on activities like mask painting and boat rowing. The “Fun in Venice” tour is a good compromise between art, history  and amusement because your professional guide is going to share with you so much of Venice culture and traditions.

Mask painting

Eveybody knows about Venice and its Carnival, the use of masks and the fab costumes of XVII century. During our Family&kids tour you’ll get familiar with the old tradition of disguise and you’ll learn to paint a mask. In an active workshop a maskmaker will show you the birth of a character from a mould where many layers of paper and glue turn into paper maché. Once you’ve created a face, you need to give it some expression: show your artistry with pencils, colours, wax and much more!

Rowing class

Our Fmily&kids tour goes on with an outdoor activity: a rowing lesson! The rowing place is located twenty minutes away from the mask workshop. A stop for a refreshing ice cream will give kids enough energy for the upcoming activity.
During this tour, the English speaking staff will introduce you to the local rowing techniques. During your rowing class you’ll keep to quiet canals and kids will learn to respect nature by collecting from the water any plastic bag or bottle they might see.
