The cities are enticing places for all ages and boast some of the most significant cultural artefacts of the past 2,000 years. Beyond the cities, Italy has much to offer. In the northwest, you can explore the Italian Alps, with world-class skiing, snowboarding, and other outdoor activities. In Tuscany you can explore the vineyards, medieval towns, and the beautiful countryside. In the south there’s the Italian Riviera, Napoli, Pompeii, and the beautiful beaches along the coast of Sicily. Whether you want a city break, a beach holiday, or outdoor activities, family holidays to Italy offer it all.

Family holidays in Tuscany

Tuscany is Italy’s most famous, most beautiful, and most relaxing region and offers a wide variety of family-friendly accommodations, attractions, and activities. While it may be famous for its laid-back ambience and vineyards, Tuscany is a fun destination for families, with historic sites, rolling hills, beautiful weather, and perfect beaches. There are fantastic accommodation options, from country villas with pools to seaside apartments.

Holiday villas with pools

Italy’s southern location makes it beautifully warm throughout the summer months, and you can guarantee a hot, sunny holiday. Villas and houses in Tuscany often have great private or shared pools, and whether you want to be by the sea, in the middle of the empty countryside, or on the edges of one of Tuscany’s picturesque towns, there are plenty of options available. Having your own pool retreat is a great way to keep the kids amused and give yourself some time to relax.

Villas and houses

Tuscany’s countryside and its towns epitomise beauty, and your accommodation options are always wonderful. From small townhouses to opulent luxury countryside villas, Tuscany has the best accommodations in Europe. Villas and houses tend to be very well equipped, and we recommend staying in one of the region’s many beautiful towns such as Pisa, Siena, or Cortona as you’ll have all the facilities and amenities you need close at hand and plenty of entertainments on offer.

Family holiday apartments

Tuscany’s towns are immaculate, ornate, and relaxed. Apartments in Tuscany will take you to the heart of some of the region’s most exciting destinations. You’ll be able to enjoy the café culture, the delectable cuisine, and the warm atmosphere of brilliant towns. Along the coast, you can find seaside apartments close to the beach, and inland you can explore some of the most beautiful towns in Europe. Apartments are without a doubt the most cost-effective way to visit Tuscany and well worth considering.

Choosing family friendly accommodation

When you are looking at accommodation in Tuscany, there are a few things to consider. Having the space and facilities you need is essential, but you’ll also want to look at the nearby amenities on offer. Having your own houses, villa, or apartment will save you lots of money on food and entertainment, but you will also want to be able to go out and enjoy the sights and delights of the region.

Travelling to Italy is very easy, and flights to Tuscany cost as little as £60 return if you book in advance. Once you’re there, it’s a good idea to hire a car so you can explore the region fully. Prices for most things are comparable to the UK, with incredible wine being slightly cheaper. Once you’re there, most of the family attractions are free, and you’ll be able to spend days at a time exploring hilltop towns and architectural and historical delights and soaking up the lovely countryside and coast.
