If you’re travelling with kids, you’ll be happy to know that Tuscany provides a wide range of activities for all the family. While many of our villas in Tuscany have a pool and should keep the kids happy for hours on end, you don’t have to venture far to find a region bursting with exciting possibilities.
Bring Learning to Life
From the interactive museums and galleries of Florence to the living history of Lucca’s city walls, Tuscany is a place in which it’s impossible not to learn a little. Having played an important role in Italian, European and world history, Tuscany is the perfect place to get your kids interacting with Renaissance art and Roman history on a first-hand basis.

Get Outside and Enjoy the Province
Not many places offer the incredible range of activities that visitors enjoy in Tuscany. The region is a cyclist’s paradise, and trails, routes, and famous climbs can be found near the majority of our holiday villas. In the rural interior, there’s plenty of opportunities to go hiking, mountaineering, and exploring or to get your hands dirty and try helping out on a farm. Horse riding is also a popular option for children of all ages.
The resorts and nature parks that make up a significant portion of the Tuscan coast are the ideal place to try your hand at any one of a number of water-sports. Whether your teens want to give scuba-diving a shot or the whole family fancies kayaking down a gently-flowing river, there’s plenty of opportunities to dive on in and get yourself wet.
