If you’ve never visited Italy as a family, you’ll want to ensure that the capital city of Rome is included in your family tour.

If you have some more time and want to visit the “big three” of Italy, a tour of Rome, Florence, and Venice will be fun for the whole family. These trips involve train travel to and from the cities so you will get to see some of the stunning countryside of Italy as you go. Tours offer exclusive family suites in popular hotels, and there are special walking tours that will delight children and teens. Some of the tours include things like mask-making, cooking or shopping.
If you are looking for a slower paced, more relaxed family vacation, why not head to Northern Italy? This region offers beautiful hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. While also providing beautiful lakes and beaches. You can take a ferry tour of the lake and visit medieval castles and nearby towns. There is also an amusement park near Lake Garda, called Gardaland. This park features a theme park, sea life par, and hotel. An enjoyable experience for kids of all ages.
Especially if you are from the city, you might want a change of pace on your visit to Italy. How about visiting one of the many farms in the Umbria or Tuscany area? You can stay anywhere from rooms in a farmhouse to an apartment complete with kitchens for cooking. There are so many things to see and do on a farm, and most have interesting animals. Some even have swimming pools and playgrounds. It’s a good option if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway.
If visiting an island in Italy is your idea of a wonderful family retreat, look no further than the sunny south island of Sardinia. It has many kid-friendly attractions along with beautiful beaches and stunning landmarks.
