Family Tuscany

A region famed for its natural beauty and cultural delights, Tuscany is the perfect place for children and parents alike. Families who are looking for a combination of educational exploration and jaw dropping beauty step right up, and do we even need to mention the added bonus of delicious child-friendly food and world-famous vino (just for the adults, mind). When you’re here, discover lovely Lucca and bicycle around its perfectly intact medieval walls, visit the bite-sized city of Siena, snap the obligatory children holding up the leaning tower of Pisa photo and last but by no means least, immerse the bambini in the historic delights of Florence.

With our team's accumulated insider knowledge of the most family-friendly Tuscan treats to tap in to, we have got you covered. Stay in one of our hand-picked family-friendly hotels, with fantastic facilities for children of all ages. When it comes to activities and experiences, we can tailor the trip to suit your families' individual needs. Whether you want an evening of guided star-gazing for your young astrologers, or to explore a sprawling wine estate, hiking through forests, vineyards and olive groves, stopping in the shade in the perfect place for a picnic. A day discovering the hidden trails in the sun will tire even the most energetic of youngsters, and they'll be dreaming of Tuscan sunsets as soon as their heads hit the pillow. For older children, why not try a guided tour of Florence's historical centre. Visit the epic Uffizi Gallery, or enjoy a private child-friendly scavenger hunt of the city, using the many Florentine symbols and signs as clues.

And finally, the food. This is Italy after all! Pasta, pizza and gelato should tempt even the fussiest of eaters, delighting parents and children alike, and we can also arrange fun cooking courses so the little ones can learn Tuscan cooking techniques, and then scoff the results. Our experts are on hand to create the perfect itineraries to suit every family, and our partnership with Sharky and George means the children will receive packs full of fun games and Italy-specific quizzes to enhance the educational (in a fun way) element even further.
