Best Things To Do With Kids In Venice – Giardino Papadopoli Playground

Giardino Papadopoli, the Venetian garden with the Greek name, is situated on the Grand Canal, next to the Piazzale Roma. It's just opposite Santa Lucia train station, so it's a convenient place to play if you're waiting for a train. It's a cool, shady park with a climbing gym and swings.

If you need a burger fix, Burger King is 5 minutes walk away (go north-east along the Fondamenta de la Croce away from Piazzale Roma). The Magnum Pleasure Store is right next door if you want to indulge a little more. For €4.50 you can create your own personal Magnum - with your choice of ice cream flavour, chocolate coating and an array of disgustingly delicious toppings (lollies, popcorn, marshmallows, sprinkles, cookies etc.). Coffee is reasonably priced at €1.50, or just add an extra €0.50 if you're buying a Magnum.

There's lots of shops and cafes at Santa Lucia Station, with our favourite being Flying Tiger, the colourful Danish variety store. You can find toys, snacks, gadgets and knick-knacks starting from just €1. Lots of fun!
