Hilton Molino Stucky Venice offers traveling families a series of new activities to help them experience the magic of Venice. Housed in a former flour mill, the 5-star hotel is located on Giudecca Island.


All ages will enjoy new historic island boat tours of Venice. Guests will be picked up at the hotel and visit the islands of Murano to watch the ancient art of glass blowing, and Burano, where traditional Venetian lace is made. The boat tour also visits the island of Torcello, where the Cathedral of Santa Maria Dell’Assunta can be explored.


For families with children 10 years old and up, the hotel can arrange a visit to a local glass blowing workshop. If the complex art behind the delicate Murano glass and other magnificent art intrigues the family, Hilton Molino Stucky Venice can also organize privately guided tours of The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, boasting 20th-century European and American art.


Through a new hotel partnership with Lido Blue Moon, a private beach resort 30 minutes away, guests can be transported by boat to the beach on the island of Venice Lido, where special amenities await for the perfect beach day.


Hilton Molino Stucky Venice serves guests Bussola cookies from Burano. Now, pastry chef Giovanni Petrillo will teach guests how to make the perfect dough andJ traditional S-shape of the buttery cookies. Young bakers will love this new activity!


The hotel boasts recently refurbished family rooms and family suites; children’s menus inspired by Italian cuisine; and a coloring book for children upon arrival.
