CHILD'S PLAY 

Life is playfulness…We need to play so that we can rediscover the magic all around us.

Flora Colao

Italians simply adore children and will do their best to accommodate their every need. Whether you want to introduce your children to the arts, or teach them how to cook and eat pizza, pasta or ice cream, or you may want to get a little more gastronomic!
 
You may want them to live a little bit of the history and be a gladiator for the day, or take part in a treasure hunt at the Vatican.  You may simply want them to meet other children so head to a place where you will find family resorts with children's clubs in Sardinia, Tuscany, the Adriatic.  Why not combine relaxation with a few trips to a medieval town or city, intrigue them with the trulli, inspire them with the caves at Matera, Frasassi, Monte Corchia, Monte Cucco, Castellana. Show off the iconic architecture that they will never forget, places like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Colossseum, the Sistine Chapel, the Rialto Bridge. Introduce them to the natural spas of Saturnia, Fosso Bianco, Vulcano, Petriolo and walk them through the gardens of Mortella in Ischia and Isola Madre on Lake Maggiore. Allow them to run free in Positano and Capri or in one of the many vineyards and beaches.
