If you’re heading away with little ones, browse our family holidays to Italy – they’ve been designed with kids in mind.
Lots of activities
Italy has an endless offering of family-friendly activities. If you’re near Naples, travel up to Mount Vesuvius. The volcano is famous for destroying the city of Pompeii in 79 AD, but it’s pretty quiet these days. Plus, the hike to the summit takes in some spectacular views. If lounging on the beach is more your cup of tea, try the island. The smart lidos along Lungomare Beach in Sicily come with loungers and parasols, as well as play areas to keep the kids busy. Maria Pia Beach, in Sardinia, is another family favourite, thanks to the shallow water and pine forest backdrop.
Our Family Life hotels were designed for families from the ground up. You’ll find a couple of them on the Italian island of Sardinia, where sandy beaches and Spanish towns are the order of the day. Lido di Jesolo also brims with child-friendly hotels. It’s the closest big beach resort to Venice — the Grand Canal is only a 90-minute boat ride away.
