Discovering Italy Through a Child's Eyes




If it’s about time to consider going on a family vacation have you thought about going to Italy? Going to a new country with children often times can be exciting, but at the same time it’s a good idea to have a plan ahead of time so that everyone can enjoy their time in Italy to the fullest. As parents it’s up to you to come up with children friendly activities, and since they all entail either learning about the country by touring museums or having fun in other ways, you will definitely enjoy them as well. Seeing Italy through a child’s eyes will no doubt be worth it, besides the long plane ride there. Once you arrive your vacation should be a breeze because you will have so much fun.

Amusement Parks in Italy

Whether you like simple amusement parks or larger ones, there are many parks located in the north part of Italy. It may not be Disney, but its fun for children who enjoy roller coasters, water rides, and the like. If you’d prefer for your children to stay away from intense rides then there’s also laser shows and a log flume ride. Pick and choose what you’d like your children to participate in at a specific theme park and they’ll most likely be happy just walking around and enjoying the sights there too.

Exploring Nature at the Villa

If you have a larger family it’s a good idea to consider staying and enjoying Tuscany villa rentals, where a villa is located away from the busier part of town and is also surrounded by nature. It’s perfect for a family because it’s not only where you will stay for the duration of your trip, but it will also become a fun place to explore. Take your kids on nature walks, explain to them what the new wildlife is that you encounter, and do arts and crafts outside of the villa too. Your children will be content spending time outside of the villa simply because there are so many adventures to enjoy there!

Zoos in Italy

Speaking of nature and wildlife, how about taking your kids to a zoo while you’re in Italy? Yes, you can participate in all of these activities and more in the US or wherever you live, but it will still be fun to experience these activities in a new country as well. You’ll learn about new animals while experiencing new sites and sounds. There’s a zoo called ZOOSAFARI that’s located in Puglia and it is a safari style zoo, which means you can get up close to the animals. Have fun getting acquainted with giraffes, monkeys, and other exotic animals. Your kids will have a wonderful time and so will you. So next time someone says that Italy isn’t for kids – you can prove them wrong!

I loved Italy when I was there at age 14. We went on a tour and saw the big tourist attractions. The only bummer about the country at that time was that we could not drink the water, and we had to carry around our own toilet paper (it was just not in any rest room).
