We will be travelling two adults and three kids (1,3,4) on train into Venezia Santa Lucia arriving in the afternoon on a Saturday in August. We plan to check into our hotel, walk around that evening, catch a couple of lazy sites and get dinner before turning in. We will then have all day Sunday to explore (at leisurely pace) before heading back to the hotel for our second night and then plan to head back to train station early Monday morning to leave.
We will have probably one large piece of luggage, baby back pack and "possibly" a double push-chair if people think this is reasonable but I think given the short walking distances and my 3 and 4 yo's capabilities to walk around, we may not need it.
Where would be the best place to stay? Should we stay in accomodation close to the train station OR would we be better off staying closer to St Marks square?
Any hotel suggestions? We would need one with a family room that could accomodate us all. Looking at rates up to $400/ night at most,
