You can immerse yourself in Italian life and learn to speak Italian with us and/or in a private school. I'm sure sure you will make friends easily either through our contacts or at the Italian school. Venice is like a small town, everybody knows each other here, and the dimension of walking and pace of life offers the chance and the time for a chat on the way.
Our preference is for you to be with us from the 1 of October until the 20th of December. You will take her to, and pick her up from school and help us, as necessary, with some light house work.
After school she usually returns home and has a snack and plays untill dinner (6.30 -7 pm). Once a week she takes part to a reading or music workshop.
As a family, Saturday is a day for cleaning up and do some grocery shopping. On Sunday we usually are off work and always spend time together. Most of the time we're not in Venice, since both our families live in other cities and we visit them regularly. My husband and I speak Italian, English and Spanish, however
we are looking to find someone who has at least a basic level of Italian. This is for the safety and comfort of our daughter.

We live in the Cannaregio neighborhood, in a spacious 3rd floor flat with a lift in a residential complex, only 5 minutes' walk from the train station S.Lucia. In the apartment there are 3 bedrooms (a double and two singles rooms), two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath, a living room, kitchen and a balcony with canal views.
We do not have a tv set but we do provide a landline for the telephone and free WI-FI.
Venice is a very special place. As well great opportunities to visit museums, churches, libraries, art exhibitions and many impressive places (lagoon) you can also simply wander the narrow streets or as we call them ‘calli'.
