Organization and flexibility are the “mantra” a family needs to take always in mind.
Below we decided to list the best destinations for families with children, ensure you miss none of them!
A “historical” stay in Turin
The old capital of the Kingdom of Italy is rich in history, art, and architecture, and is one of the most sought after destinations for families. Thanks to its square plant, Turin is easy to visit, having monuments and squares as reference points; moreover, its avenues and arcades allow for beautiful relaxing and safe walks for children with strollers.
Egyptian Museum Turin and, for the little ones, Valentino Park, the city’s most famous and old public park, are top notch!

Verona: romantic and absolutely fun!
Another perfect city to be visited with children is the beautiful Verona, just to one of the least polluted cities in Italy. Verona has a splendid “entrance hall”, Piazza Brà, one of the largest squares in Europe.
