Italy with little kids

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Tuscany with our extended family for a week in June. We have a few days after that we may want to explore as a family of four. In Tuscany, we will be staying in San Gimignano. We have two little kids who will be just over 3.5 and 6 in June 2017.

We were thinking of going to Cinque Terre because we have never been, and it looks amazing. I have read reviews though that suggest it isn't good for little kids or will be crazy busy in June. Our kids are well-behaved but are still young, and we need to pace ourselves slowly so they don't get burnt out and fall apart. They thrive in nature. They love hikes (their favorite thing), but obviously, we would never want to take them on anything that is too dangerous for their age. Are there CT hikes they could do? Could we rent a small boat to take us out?

Is there anywhere else that we should consider going to from Tuscany? We live near a beach at home so we wouldn't be going for a beach though obviously, they would also enjoy that. We will have a pool in Tuscany so that is also not a necessity. We just want to experience Italy, show them different places and enjoy our vacation as a family.

Thanks for any suggestions!
