Venice and Florence 4 Kids

Jump to last reply


I will be travelling with my 9-year-old son to Italy end December, and will be spending 3 days in each of Venice and Florence before going skiing. I am longing to get some serious art viewing, he thinks naked bodies are embarrassing. (he's a boy, and he's that age). But we probably will never get to these places again so I would like to do things we can both enjoy and remember, so we will be taking in the Uffizi Gallery etc so that he can remember it later, when it becomes more meaningful (hopefully!).

I have been reading other threads and would like to know what people might suggest he would enjoy, and also about the Secret Itinerary tour (of what, or is that a secret? How much and where do I book?) and possibly getting to Pisa from Florence (same questions).

As I am a single mother and our currency is 7.8 to the euro, budget is always important, and we are both very fit so walking, climbing steps etc is not an issue.

As always when planning exotic trips, planning definitely is half the fun so thank you to all the people who contribute your practical experiences.
