beach and mountains in Italy with kids and without a car

Jump to last reply

We'd like to spend 3-4 weeks in Italy in May/June 2014 with our 2 young children (and likely several grandparents once they realize we're going to Italy!). We are interested in nature (short hikes and boat trips to see wildflowers, marine animals, birds, etc.), and in experiencing cute Italian towns, but less interested in museums because we'll have a 4 year old and 1 year old with us. We are looking for an area where we can stay in one or two towns and do day hikes and day trips from the towns, rather than changing hotels frequently, and where we do not need to have a car. We thought that going to the maritime Alps and then the coast somewhere south of Genoa could be our best option. We have been to Cinque Terre and loved it off-season, but we are also open to new coastal areas. We are also open to other parts of Italy, such as the Dolomites near Cortina, or the Lakes district, but no where that would be really hot in June.

Any suggestions for where to go?
