Kids in Italy – what they might like

Jump to last reply

I have seen many postings about families with kids of varying ages. I thought it might be useful to list a few places to visit which do not involve trips to aquatic parks or similar but might still interest the adults.

In no particular order, here is a first selection:


Gardens of Bomarzo

About 15 km east of Viterbo and about 5 km west of the Attigliano exit on the A1 autostrada.
Known as the Park of the Monsters this was created in the 16th century by Pier Francesco Orsini

Grazzano Visconti

Located at Vigolzone just over 10 km south of Piacenza
A fortified citadel dating back to 1395

San Gimignano

Torture museum in the medieval “Manhattan” city

Marostica

About 4 km west of Bassano del Grappa

Famous for the square set out like an enormous chess board where chess matches take place with individuals dressed up in costume and the knights actually on horseback.

Stibbert Museum, Florence

About 1 km north east of Fortezza da Basso.

A museum famous for its arms and armour. The Cavalcade room has 14 16th century knights on horseback and 14 soldiers fully dressed in armour and holding weapons.

St. Patrick’s Well, Orvieto

Located just outside the town walls.

A huge well with a double helix stairway.

Matera

The whole town is a museum. Live like a troglodyte by staying in one of the cave hotels.
