The Baby Boomer's Venice was created in 1996, and we've left it online for archival purposes. To see our current Venice sites, please go to:

You're over 40, and your days as a backpacking hitchhiker are behind you. Yet you're still young enough to cringe at the idea of an escorted bus tour with the Grey Panthers. When you visit Europe, you want a comfortable, memorable, adult experience with just a hint of romance and adventure. In short, you're a Baby Boomer--the kind of traveler for whom this site was created.

Why travel to Venice? Because it's the perfect European holiday venue for Baby Boomers. With more than a third of its residents over the age of 60, Venice is a town that makes balding, bulging Boomers feel young again. Let the teens and twenty-somethings bemoan the local disco drought. This is your kind of city--a middle-age spread where even a contemporary of The Mamas and the Papas can dream of being a courtesan or gigolo.

As you explore The Baby Boomer's Venice, you'll find practical tips to help you make the most of your days and nights in the world's most beautiful city. Simply use the buttons at left or the links at the bottom of the page to navigate your way through the site.

Once you've whetted your appetite for Venice, you'll find even more features and links (more than 300 pages in all) in the Venice for Visitors section of our Europe for Visitors travel site. Bill Machrone of PC Magazine has called it "the premier visitors' site for Venice, Italy."
