With half term approaching, it’s not too late to book a last minute break, and where better to choose than Tuscany for the perfect family holiday.
There are loads to do and a villa holiday means there is plenty of space for the children to run around and let off steam, while you put your feet up and take time out to relax.
Here are a few child-friendly tips we know will come in handy:
The Uffizi gallery is a must-see on a trip to Florence so to avoid the queue, especially with impatient children, book your tickets in advance. Use this link to bookhttp://bit.ly/2qHqLMi
Florence can be tiring for little ones but the Biboli Gardens is a great place for the kids to relax in the shade by the cooling fountains. Or if they still have some energy, a game of hide and seek amongst the sculptures is lots of fun!
The Maggiolatta Festival is Lucignano’s flower festival and takes place on the last 2 Sundays of May. Only 30 mins from Cignella, the colourful blooms and flowered floats accompanied by a marching band will be captivating for little ones.
Marina di Grosetto beach, just 2 hours away, is a well-tended beach with bars and restaurants while Fiumara Beach, around the headland, is less busy and natural. Whichever you choose it’s a great day out for everyone!
Torre del Mangia, the tallest tower in Siena, is a fun climb with kids – although with 400 steps young children may want to give it a miss. Views from the top are wonderful and the climb will burn off some steam.
In most towns, you will find a park, and there are many piazzas where the kids can run about chasing pigeons. Eating out in Italy is never a problem as delicious pizza and yummy pasta is always on the menu!
A villa holiday offers independence and privacy, and with space for up to 6 people, there is room for grandparents too! And don’t forget that we provide cots and bedding, along with high chairs and children’s’ bowls and cups to make packing a little easier.
With a few villas and apartments still available, make this half term a Tuscan adventure for your family!
See you soon
