1 – Fun and culture in Rimini, on the Adriatic Riviera

With its sandy beaches, shallow sea and family-friendly resorts, the Adriatic Riviera is a favourite destination for summer holidays with children. Rimini, in particular, offers a host of attractions to ensure a memorable vacation for all ages. Its Ferris Wheel, for example, is not to be missed: as the wheel rises, it provides unique views of the Adriatic coast, an enchanting sight at sunset. For families with older children, the Fellini Museum is a cultural experience everyone will enjoy, with interactive exhibits, videos and art installations that pay homage to the creativity and magic of Federico Fellini’s cinema, taking even the youngest visitors on a fascinating journey. Rimini also offers public gardens and theme parks, for exciting adventures on the rides and games. 

2- Nature, sport and adventure for the whole family in Trentino Alto Adige region

Trentino Alto Adige is the ideal alpine destination for people who love nature and open-air sports. The region’s variety of activities let children explore and learn while having fun. An excursion in one of Italy’s loveliest nature parks, the Adamello Brenta, is a must, with its trails and picnic areas and the chance to discover the local flora and fauna. The Muse, the Trento Science Museum, is a perfect place to stimulate children’s curiosity. Its interactive displays and science laboratories are a unique opportunity to learn through play. In the Trentino, families can enjoy sports including trekking, mountain biking and, in the winter, skiing and tobogganing. The resorts are well organised to accommodate small children, providing lessons and programs to suit all ages.

3 – Alberobello, a trip to fairyland in Puglia

With its famous trulli looking like something out of a fairy tale, Alberobello, in the region of Puglia, is truly unique. A stroll through the streets of this picturesque town will be a magical experience for kids, who might think they have come to an enchanted land. Puglia also offers splendid beaches, nature parks like the Gargano National Park and, for an underground adventure, spectacular caves like the Grotte di Castellana.

4 – Adventures in nature in Tuscany’s Maremma

Tuscany’s Maremma area is another excellent choice for a family holiday. With its unspoilt landscapes, it has an abundance of open-air activities such as hiking or bicycle trips through its nature parks and reserves. Families can visit the Maremma Park, where children will be able to observe wild animals in their natural habitat. Meanwhile, the Maremma coast with its fine sands and crystalline water is perfect for a day of relaxation on the beach.

5 – Sport, leisure and entertainment at the Garda Lake

Lake Garda is a perfect destination for a holiday with the kids: it provides many attractions, nature, safe beaches, a restful atmosphere, hotels equipped to welcome the smallest children, and some of Italy’s largest and most important theme parks. At the same time, its extensive network of cycle paths and breathtaking scenery make it an excellent place for bicycle outings with the whole family. There is an endless choice of itineraries, most of them suitable for children. One of the most exciting is the 2.5 km suspended cycle path between Limone sul Garda and Capo Reamol.
