With a heritage that is not only infused into the pride of the Italian people but evident at every turn, Italy’s charms lie in its historically-rooted beauty and sun-kissed landscapes. Stroll around some of the world’s most iconic cities and immerse yourself in ancient culture, or laze and play on pure white sands for an entire week on your Italy family holiday; wherever you choose to stay you’ll be treated to sublime cuisine and sensational scenery that all ages will love.

Fringed by a golden coastline boasting some of Europe’s finest beaches, Sardinia is a melting pot of history and natural beauty. The capital Cagliari has historical sites such as the Roman amphitheatre, which youngsters will love exploring. Visit one of the island’s grottoes and caves and gawp at the huge stalactites and stalagmites, or take a ride on The Little Green Train, a tourist line that snakes through some of Sardinia’s most beautiful landscapes.

Puglia (the ‘heel’ in Italy’s boot) is the country’s best kept secret, a coastal holiday spot that the locals love. Here you can expect a dramatic coastline fringed with turquoise waters and views you could enjoy for hours on end. Zoo Safari Fasanolandia makes for a great family day out; one of the largest zoos in Europe it has everything from gorillas to rollercoasters!

The vast and enchanting island of Sicily is home to Mount Etna, and all ages with love the scenic cable car ride up this famous volcano. Elsewhere, families will find plenty more to explore and experience, including gorgeous cuisine, landscape, rich cultural heritage and coastline. For a culinary treat be sure to enjoy ricotta cannoli, panelle (fritters), fresh seafood and delicious oranges from the orchards of Ribera.

Italy Family City Breaks

Think a city break is only for grown-ups? Think again! There are some fantastic luxury hotels with incredible children’s facilities in Florence and Rome.

Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is a constant visual and cultural treat. From palatial art galleries to chic corner cafes; children will come home with new ideas and lasting memories. Take a ride on the antique carousel in the charming bustle of Piazza della Repubblica or climb the 463 steps to the top of Il Duomo and take in the view.

Rome provides a whirlwind of awe-inspiring architecture, ancient historical sites, glamorous shops and don’t forget the gelato! No family city break here would be complete without a guided tour of the Colosseum. There’s so much to explore here so we recommend taking a pedicab tour through the cobbled streets to save sore little feet (and your own!).
