Holidays with children in Tuscany - Sole, Mare and excursions for the whole family
The kids want to go to the sea and romp and swim at a campsite or holiday park in Tuscany with a pool? You want to enjoy Italian charm, millennia-old culture, charming landscapes, wines and the regional cuisine? And of course, the whole family wants to share experiences and relax? Then a holiday in Tuscany is just the right thing for you.
Seaside resorts, Renaissance towns and many excursion ideas for the whole family
From the border with Liguria down the Etruscan coast to the Maremma - on your holiday in Tuscany by the sea you can chill out in many places on well-kept pebble and sandy beaches with numerous sun loungers and parasols for hire. Nature lovers will find wildly romantic natural sandy beaches with dune fringes, especially in the south of Tuscany near Grosseto. Many holiday homes are located on the green edge of popular seaside resorts in Tuscany, for example near Marina di Carrara, Bibbona and Castagneto Carducci. Many beaches fly the Blue Flag of the European Union - a sign of safety and cleanliness.
Holidays in Tuscany - varied holidays for young and old alike
On the islands of the Tuscan archipelago, especially on Elba, you will find an exciting mix of sandy beaches and rocky coves. You can book paddle and pedal boats, banana boat tours, sailing, windsurfing or kitesurfing courses, boat or diving excursions in many seaside resorts in Tuscany. For active holidaymakers, there are beach volleyball nets and football goals in the sand. For the little ones, colourful beach playgrounds have been built on many beaches in Tuscany.
Pure bathing fun at a campsite with a pool in Tuscany
Most campsites in Tuscany are small or medium-sized. On many campsites you can enjoy Tuscan specialities in the terrace ristorante and local wines. You will often find small or medium-sized pool facilities. If you have older kids who "get off" on fast mega-slides, it's worth visiting the water parks in Tuscany. The Acqua Villages in Follonica or Cecina, for example, are popular. If your children love horses, you will find riding stables in the Arno Valley, in the wooded and wine-rich Chianti, in the Maremma and in other regions of Tuscany.
Discover the country, people, cuisine and culture with the whole family in Tuscany
The city of the Medici and the Renaissance, Florence, is very crowded around Ponte Vecchio and St. Mary's Cathedral in high season. If you want to visit the Uffizi Gallery and the Galileo Museum, you should book online in advance. But there's always one thing you can do: "prevent" the Leaning Tower of Pisa from toppling over in your holiday photo.
Sightseeing that is also fun for children in Tuscany
The spacious lawns of the "Square of Miracles" in Pisa, around the Leaning Tower, Basilica and Cathedral, are not overcrowded even in high season. Or the youngsters count the family towers in San Gimignano, with whose height rich families competed for prestige in the Middle Ages.
A different kind of Tuscan holiday - amusement parks for the whole family
The Cavallino Matto park, "Crazy Horse", in Marina di Castagneto Carducci is a popular fun park in Tuscany. Here you can board the "Shocking Tower", roller coasters and experience lots of fun, games and attractions for almost all age groups. Families with younger children can visit the Pinocchio Park in Collodi.
