Review: Taking a Toddler - Leanne Smith


Hi we’re looking to take our toddler to Venice for a couple of nights but after reading this blood have decided to stay at this camp in September, I just want to know how easy and how long does it take to get to Venice on the bus and ferry?

  1. Hi Leanne I think it was about a 10 minute walk to the bus stop, a 10 minute bus ride, and I think it was about 30 mins on the ferry. Our youngest was 2 when we did it.

      Oh perfect thank you. Just weighing up our options. She will be 2 in September so was just worried with lots of people saying Venice is no place for a toddler. Also was it pretty easy to get to the camp from the airport I’ve priced it up with Euro camp and they want over £300 am certainly not paying that.

      • That is steep. We booked transfers ourselves. It cost 90 Euros each way, which was about £50 or £60. I suspect it would cost more now. If you are taking a pushchair it can be difficult as Venice has a lot of small bridges with steps, so there’s a lot of lifting the chair. We learnt that the hard way. It didn’t stop us visiting a few times though. It’s mainly a problem exploring the back streets but they are well worth visiting. You can find places to buy pizza slices to take with you – though food in Venice is expensive and it’s cheaper to take food with you from the campsite. A flatter area to take a pushchair is if you follow the canal on the right as you face St Marks square. That will take you to a big park area. We really enjoyed Ca Savio. You could explore Venice and have all the things kids like such as the pools and beech. The pizza restaurant at the campsite was very good too. Mind you, we’ve never had a bad pizza in Italy.
