Travelling with Children

Travelling with children in Italy is without doubt one of the most wonderful experiences. Italians adore children and will do anything to help them and amuse them. Children are welcomed everywhere and at any time. There are discounts for children to be had on most public transport and into many museums and art galleries.

Here are a few suggestions of where to go with your children. But of course these are just the tip of the iceberg:

If your children enjoy eating pasta and spaghetti, and your trip happens to include going to Rome, a visit to the National Museum of Pasta Foods is a fun place to take them. It's located near to the Trevi Fountain and you will be able to see different methods of making pasta making throughout the ages.

Collodi is a place in Tuscany near Pistoia. It should be famous for being an ancient medieval hill village with a beauty unto itself. But what's its really famous for is because the author of Pinocchio (Carlo Lorenzini) used the name Collodi as his pseudonym for the book. Pinocchio's Theme Park is located nearby.

Venice is a wonderful city but there is a lot of walking involved. The vaporetti are an exciting way to sightsee the canals. You might consider staying at the Lido as it is the only part of Venice you can drive to, and has plenty of activities on its well-equipped beaches.

Italia in Miniatura is an open air park designed by the creator of E.T. It has over 250 miniature replicas of Italian monuments, sights and daily life. It's located within a 15 mile stretch of coast between Cesenatico to Ravenna which has sandy beaches, shallow calm waters and endless activities for children.
