Kids Activities Tuscany - Lots of fun things to keep your kids busy!
Tuscany is famous for its excellent pasta, wine, art and museums… but what if you are travelling with children? What can you do with your kids in Tuscany?
Your villa will more than likely have its own pool, however, a few day trips are worth planning. We've put together a wide range of suggestions for activities (fun and educational!) for kids of all ages, also remember our Tuscan Experiences (see menu on the left for details) many of which are suitable for children. We haven't included entrance charges as these are sure to change. Please check the web site links or call before making a journey, we don't want it all to end in tears!
Please Note: The links on this page are to the sites of each individual attraction and are given for information only, we are not associated with any of the attractions and don't actually run or organize any of these activities ourselves. We have taken the word "kids" to mean a wide age range (some activities could even be for adults), please use your own judgement when deciding if the activity is suitable for your own children.
If swinging through the treetops, balancing on a trunk or silently sliding through the air on a zip line is your idea of “fun”, then you have to go to an adventure park!
