Venice, dubbed as the City of Canals is one of the most water cities tucked beautifully in Italy. Over 20 million tourists visit the ethereal city every year and while many believe Venice is a place for romance and love, traveling families won't be disappointed as well.

If you're looking forward to a trip to Venice with your family, then consider these sights to see and things to do to keep everyone up on their feet.

1. Take gondola rides

Venice is best known for its scenic spots best enjoyed lazily seated on a gondola. Apart from basking in the city's colorful and aged houses, children could perceive these rides as somewhat of a race. Leave it to them to cheer on if one gondola pulls ahead of the rest.

2. Visit Palazzo Venier dei Leoni

Tucked on the Grand Canal, the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni is home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. This museum is a real eye-candy not only to parents but also to the younger crowd as well.

Families can experience the entire collection consisting of works by renowned artists Magritte, Ernst as well as Picasso. If parents have children who are budding artists, this museum is one of the best places to go to while you're in the city.

3. Enjoy the energy in St. Mark's Square

Piazza San Marco otherwise known as St. Mark's Square is one of the world's most famous public squares. This square holds a tremendous amount of history that helped shaped the city to how it is in the present day.

Being here during New Year is one of the best experiences families can share with each other, as there are festive dances, performances, fireworks and everything in between.

Apart from the things to do, the piazza is brimming with sights to see like the St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace. There are also tons of Venetian pigeons all over the square kids can have a knack at feeding.
