Thank you for sharing your photos. I will be traveling to Venice this September and I needed to know if I needed a life jacket or at least a “throwable” foam cushion (that’s what it’s called) “just in case”. I could not get an answer as to whether or not they had them in the gondola. I searched the web and came across your blog. However I didn’t get an answer until the very bottom (which you provided…thank you!). Through the search for the answer, I got to view your site and see all of the wonderful photos of your beautiful family, and I was happy to see them and the views of Venice.

I appreciated viewing your blog and thanks again!

Again tha

Loved those photos, kids seem to enjoy every bit of Venice. I am fascinated by Venice, even prepared a list of places to visit, http://list.ly/list/jCd-the-most-lovable-attractions-in-venice. Hope to make it there in near future and yes with your photographs I can assume I will not get in trouble with my kids as well!

We went to Venice as a family of 4 and it was delightful. We found a nice hotel, managed to see all the major monuments and took an truly enjoyable food tour with Food Tours of Venice (foodtoursofvenice.com). It wasn’t nearly as chaotic as I thought it would be, but my boys are in their teens so maybe I got lucky :)

I’m currently looking for a hotel that fits all of us. What’s the name of the hotel you stayed at and was it close to the main attractions?

He really struggles to go pats 9p.m. and i am a little worried that the festivities may not even have started by then.
Were there fireworks / activities in the day too or just at night?
LOVE YOUR PHOTOS!!!

Thank you, designmom!
I’m planning a trip with two friends and two little kids (2 and 5 1/2) so your title intrigued me. My two biggest concerns are all the walking (hard on the two year old to be in a backpack carrier that long) and what I’ve read about the smell (my five year old can’t even bear it when I open French cheese at the dinner table).
Any thoughts on these issues?

One of our last European trips was when we went to Finland. If you take a ferry to Russia from Finland, you can get a temporary 72 hr visa . So we went to Finland than headed out to St. Petersburg by boat. We got there in one night. We had a great time.

We’ve been living in Torino, Italy while my husband is on sabbatical – 6 weeks gone and less than a month left. On weekends we’ve been visiting everything we can including Venice, Florence and the Provence region. I’ve found your blog full of useful advice on family travel and living abroad – thanks! And yes, the best thing to see in Venice, is, Venice!

I’m so glad you shared them. Venice IS on my list. I am one of six kids, and I am seriously impressed that you and Ben Blair took six kids to France, to Venice — to all of the places you go. You’re amazing.

You really made the city come to life. I am curious about what you carry when you travel with your kids. It doesn’t look like you have a bag. I think maybe Ralph has a backpack. I only have three kids and seem to be constantly carry stuff – wipes, drinks, snacks, camera, band aids LOL. How do you travel so light with so many?

Love your photos of Venice and can’t believe how much all of your kids have grown. DesignMom is a comforting constant in my household. My husband frequently asks what you are up to, I think he is secretly reading your blog. Lol!
