Venice Vacation, Travel with Children.

Why a Venice vacation? Celebrating New Years Eve as your children grow older becomes less about finding tickets for outrageous parties, clubs, gigs and ore about finding something beautiful, fun and inclusive you can do as a family.  You want the big bangs, the fireworks, the camaraderie of other people without overwhelming crowds and the ability to get back to the warm as soon as the children have had enough, or the ability to experience it all from the comfort of a vey large hotel window!
