Hi, we will be travelling to Venice for the 4th time, but this time it is with a 16 month old toddler and have a few questions and would love your recommendations to help us. Note we will be there for 1 week (taking our time so we are not rushed with Biennale), and will be staying in Giudecca where it should hopefully be a bit more relaxed.
Are there any recommendations for restaurants which would be good to take a toddler to, particularly those where we would be able to be done with our meal by 7PM (bedtime!).
Are there any good playgrounds (on any of the islands), or places for a toddler to safely run around and play?
As we will be staying in Giudecca, are there any good recommendations for grocery stores? Or some place for us to buy food (particularly fresh fruit) to take back to the apartment where we will be staying (and will have a kitchen). Pasta shops?
How are the baby changing facilities generally? Any places better than others? if we are stuck, is there an issue if we need to change a nappy outside on a bench, or is that frowned upon?
Are there any child/toddler friendly museums or galleries you would recommend? (we heard the Guggenheim is quite good for kids).
We have read a few places that it is recommended to get a Venice Card. Do you recommend this for a 7 day trip?
Anything else you can recommend?
Thank you for your recommendations!
