Cons: large (takes up a good amount of trunk space), need to make sure everything (handlebar, seat, wheels) is properly positioned before folding up.
1. Reversible handle. I didn't realize how important and convenient this is until I actually used it - to shield the child from wind/rain/sun and to enable the baby to face you when he's sleeping.
2. Reclines completely flat. Most strollers claim to be infant-friendly with a full recline, but few truly are. Most still have a small angle. But since I was looking for an infant-to-toddler stroller, I wanted the stroller to recline completely like a pram. This stroller does that.
3. HUGE basket. I do some shopping while I'm walking the baby to save time, and this basket is very convenient.
4. Boot. It's nice and cozy and is made of thick fabric.
5. Bar handle, as opposed to two handles for each hand. This makes steering with one hand much easier.
6. Maneuverability - it's quite responsive, turns well and fits well in the shopping isles of a store or supermarket.
7. Folds upright - I did not want a stroller that I'd have to put on the ground to fold, especially in a bad weather. But this stroller folds upright, and can stand on its own in the folded position. It has handles on each side to carry it.
8. Fits well into the trunk of my car. I tried it with Mazda Protege and Toyota Corolla, and had no problems.
This stroller has a few inconveniences:
1. The boot cannot be completely detached from the stroller, and when not in use, has to be stored in the basket. It's a pity, because it it will take quite a lot of space in the basket, and the large basket on this stroller is one of the nice features.
2. Yes, the cup holder is useless.Read more ›
Great Features: The stroller just looks great (ours isn't the newport but the Toffee color BabiesRus sells) It works great with the peg car seat (snaps right in) and is very easy to take in and out of the car for errands (it's not a heavy stroller and folds rather flat). It is very easy to manuver, as soon as you figure out how to lock the right set of wheels for which direction you have the stroller facing...it's like butter at the mall... Which brings me to the adjustable handle! Baby can face you or baby can face out to the world (none of the graco's have this and I was very happy to be able to face my baby) I noticed it's not as "supersized" as the graco's it's a rather compact and streamlined stroller. The pram feature is super, baby can lay down and nap in the stroller, comfy and cozy. The fabric is very soft, and an added bonus is it's not covered with silly cartoon characters. It's has a very sophisticated, clean look. This stroller comes with a convenient kiddie tray, so when baby is old enough you can just pop the tray in.
The shortcommings: This is not an all terrain stroller...if you can accept this and know this going into it you will be fine. The tires are not rubber, they are plastic. The stoller is great for walking around the neighborhood, sidewalks, city streets, malls, etc. The cupholder is worthless, though it does fit a small bottle of water, or soda or a baby bottle...
Overall, we are very pleased with our peg venezia!
I highly reccomend the Venezia and the Aria stroller. I would never think of purchasing anything else. Pegs last for years to come. Don't think twice about spending extra money for the Peg. Enjoy!

I agree with the previous poster that it is unfortunate that the boot does not come off and has to be stored in the basket underneath. That aside, it is a very nice stroller. Read morePublished on June 22, 2006 by Rachel
