9 tips for beginners visiting Italy for the first time

Lori Zaino

Planning your first vacation to Italy ? Not only is this beautiful country one of the top culinary destinations in the world, but it's also home to some seriously iconic tourist attractions to boot. With over 55 UNESCO World Heritage sites, three active volcanoes and over 1,500 lakes, you'll never get bored. And if you are, well, there's always pizza!

family guy trip to italy

When organizing a vacation to Italy, there are a few things you should know in order to have a safe and enjoyable getaway. First-time travelers take note: these are some of the things you consider for your Italian adventure.

1. Figure out what kind of trip you want to have

Italy's got it all: 4,600 miles of coastline lined with hundreds of gorgeous beaches , numerous tourist attractions, lively cities, charming villages and sprawling vineyards. From low-cost to luxury, Italy has accommodation, restaurants and activities to fit every budget, whether it's renting a yacht off the coast of Capri, staying in an affordable hostel in Rome or enjoying a Sicilian farmhouse getaway.

Consider your interests, as well as some of the things Italy is famous for, like gastronomy (you could build a trip around dining out or cooking classes), art (Italy has some of the top museums in the world) or exploring a wine region (drive through the hills of Prosecco or Tuscany's wine country).

Related: How to have a budget vacation in Italy

Or, think about destinations. For each week you have of vacation , you can comfortably squeeze in two destinations (maybe more if you're a very active traveler).

  • If you love art and tourist attractions, consider Rome and Florence.
  • If you love fashion but also want to relax, consider Milan and one of the northern lakes.
  • If you want pizza, cityscape and coastal charm, consider Nap les and the Amalfi coast.
  • If you want to dig into Italy's food and wine scene, consider a road trip through Tuscany or Piedmont.
  • If you love skiing , consider a visit to Milan and the Italian Alps.
  • If you're looking for romance, consider exploring Verona and Venice.
  • If you need a beach vacation, consider exploring an island like Sardinia or Sicily.
  • If you have 10 days or more and want to enjoy the most typical tourist circuit, consider a trip to the big three: Rome, Florence and Venice -- some of the country's most popular spots for visitors.

Note that while you can find various price points around the country for lodging, dining and activities, typically, costs are lower in southern Italy than in northern Italy.

2. Pick the right season

In general, Italy has wonderful weather. Many areas of the country see lots of sunshine and temperatures are mild even in winter, though summers can be steamy. Depending on what you plan to do, make sure to consider the season. Beach visits are best in the summer, though months like May and September see fewer crowds and still have great weather.

Related: These are the best times to visit Italy

Avoid larger, crowded cities like Rome in the heart of summer, unless you're prepared for extreme heat. Harvest season/autumn is the ideal time to visit the wine region, and southern Italy can be mild throughout the winter. Many deals can be found in the low season, but know that winter in the north can be cold and rainy.

If you do go to Italy between March and October, bring sunblock and a hat -- don't underestimate those Mediterranean rays.

3. Do your research when it comes to tourism

Although Covid-19 has put a dampener on tourism, during busier times, attractions like the Vatican may see up to 30,000 visitors per day. That means you may have to wait a long time in line to buy a ticket and enter. Add Rome's scorching sunshine to the mix and you may end up sunburned, exhausted from queuing all day and never get the chance to step foot in the Sistine Chapel.

If visiting big-name tourist attractions is important to you, buy tickets online. Skip-the-line tickets or guided tours may also be worth the price: evaluate your options and decide.

City passes are another alternative. The Milan city pass offers things like discounts on popular attractions, free Milan public transport and a free drink at a local Milanese bar. The Rome tourist card has fast-track entry benefits and free access to the Vatican and the Colosseum. Florence's city pass includes skip-the-line entry to Galleria degli Uffizi and Galleria dell'Accademia, plus tickets for the hop-on, hop-off bus tour.

So, think about what you want to do and see, do the maths and purchase ahead.

4. But don't forget about local spots too

Visiting Italy's most famous attractions should hold a firm spot on your bucket list. That being said, plan to take some time to get off the tourist track a bit. Consider exploring more local neighborhoods or visiting a small village or a less-popular spot like Lake Maggiore instead of Lake Como. Seeing all the big-name hotspots is a must, but experiencing the beauty of true Italian culture and cuisine may be even better.

5. Take the train

The Freeciarossa runs between some of Italy's best destinations. These high-speed trains from company Trenitalia are affordable, fast and comfortable. Traveling up to about 180 miles per hour, trains are one of the best and quickest ways to get from A to B. And, you won't have to deal with learning the Italian rules of the road or the hassle of car rental agencies. Taking the train is easy: You can purchase tickets easily online ahead of time or last minute depending on your travel style. You can visit spots like Milan, Rome , Florence, Venice, Turin and Naples on the Frecciarossa trains.

6. Don't discount the islands

Italy's island culture goes beyond just the beach. And, there are over 450 of them! Sicily has a whole sub-culture of its own, and far-flung spots like the Tremiti islands or the Aeolian islands will ensure you get sufficiently off-the-beaten-path . If it's luxury you desire, Sardinia's Costa Smeralda is a hotspot and nothing looks sexier on an Instagram feed than Capri.

7. Familiarize yourself with the language and culture

You might get lucky when it comes to a larger city like Rome, where many locals speak English.

Southern Italy or smaller villages are a different story. Luckily, Italians are a friendly bunch and will do their best to communicate with you despite any language barriers. Come prepared with a few key phrases and your favorite translation app downloaded.

Italy is old, and so are its streets. Many are made of cobblestone. While locals (Milan, here's looking at you) may jog by in designer stilettos, you should wear comfortable footwear. Make sure to dress modesty, especially when visiting churches. You won't be allowed into spots like Vatican City if your knees and shoulders aren't covered.

While mealtimes aren't quite as late as Spain's, Italians tend to eat slightly later. Expect lunch around 1:00 p.m., and dinners around 8:30 p.m. or 9:00 p.m.

8. Money-saving tips

While it's normal to make a tourist faux pas or two (especially on your first trip), here are some things you should avoid:

  • Tipping at restaurants if it's already included on your bill (many spots add in a 10% service charge).
  • Heavily tipping taxi drivers (rounding up to the nearest euro is normal).

family guy trip to italy

Save even more money with the following:

  • Take advantage of apertivo hours in northern Italy. These are happy hours that offer free buffet food for a few hours pre-dinner time in the early evening. Order a drink or two to gain access to the snacks.
  • Stand at the bar to drink your espresso. Table seating at breakfast has an additional charge, and even more if you want to eat outside.
  • Beware of the "coperto." This is a service charge for simply eating at the restaurant , usually a euro or two per person.
  • Don't eat or drink in the main city square. These spots are usually overpriced tourist traps.

9. Be alert for travel scams

Watch out for those trying to take advantage of unsuspecting tourists with scams :

  • Pickpockets;
  • Gladiators: If you take a photo of or with them, they'll expect a tip;
  • Taxi scams: Insist the meter be turned on, or make sure you're aware of any flat-rate pricing;
  • Unauthorized tour guides or ticket helpers at train stations; and
  • Anyone who approaches you with lavender, flowers or a pizza box. Just walk the other way.

Bottom line

family guy trip to italy

Armed with these tips and tricks, planning a trip to Italy will be easy. You can sit back, relax and enjoy all the delights Italy has to offer, knowing that you've picked the right destinations, will skip the line to see those bucket-list tourist attractions, avoid scams and save a little money on meals.

  • How to Plan a Family Trip to Italy 2024

Planning a family trip to Italy involves a meticulous approach to ensure an enjoyable experience for all members. Here's a comprehensive guide to crafting an unforgettable family adventure in Italy.

1. Choose Where to Go in Italy for Your Family

We've picked these five family-friendly destinations as recommendations for you. These are top picks for families' first trips to Italy.

Rome is an indispensable destination for both adults and children to explore the historical and cultural heritage of Italy and even Europe.

Particularly for teenagers, it's like witnessing a segment of their history books coming to life. There, they could more intimately experience the allure of Roman culture right before their eyes, such as walking through the ruins of the ancient Colosseum, allowing them to imagine the spectacular scenes of two millennia ago and learn about the courage and skill of the gladiators.

You and your kids could also take a food tour to taste Italian ice cream (gelato), Italian pizza, and other local food.

Discover real reviews of Highlights Travel Family 's best-rated service across trusted platforms.

2) Florence

As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is also an essential destination. In the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery, your children could see famous works from their art or history classes, such as the statue of David. The professional and interesting explanations by your guide would enable you to learn more about the stories behind these works.

Taking a cooking class would also be an interesting experience for your family. If your child loves nature, you could also experience truffle hunting in the countryside around Florence.

Venice is like a Disney water-themed park for children. Take a gondola (a Venetian-style pointy punt) ride and enjoy shuttling along the canals.

Explore Rialto Market, where you could get a feel for local Venice. There are all kinds of interesting gadgets and food inside.

Take a boat trip to Murano, an island famous for its glass-making heritage. Witness glass-blowing demonstrations and perhaps even try making a small glass souvenir.

4) Amalfi Coast

If you want some outdoor adventures with your kids, the Amalfi Coast is a good option. There, you could explore beautiful seaside towns with colorful houses, go hiking, and go kayaking.

Number in your group

Adults number (age ≥ 18 years old)

Children number (age of children at time of trip)

10-17 yrs old

3-9 yrs old

0-2 yrs old

When would you travel?

Select your travel date.

I prefer to be contacted via:

If you are looking for a family beach vacation in Italy, then go to Sicily. There, you could relax in a town at the foot of a volcano, watch an ancient Sicilian puppet show with your children, and have fun at the warmest beaches and in the sea.

If you're adventurous, try to hike Europe's highest active volcano. If you are lucky, you could see a small volcano erupting during the climb.

2. Decide How Long to Travel in Italy to Satisfy Your Family

A week is a basic minimum time for a family trip to Italy, covering Rome, Florence, and Venice. For a relaxed pace, 9–10 days is more suitable.

If you want to include some beach time or outdoor activities, 10–12 days are recommended.

Suggested 1-Week Family Itinerary

  • Day 1: Rome, arrival and relaxation
  • Days 2–3: Rome (visit landmarks like the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, etc)
  • Day 4: Rome to Venice by a high-speed train
  • Days 5–6: Venice (city sightseeing with a family boat ride, island hopping)
  • Day 7: Departure

Feel free to contact us to obtain a tailor-made itinerary and quote for your family trip to Italy. All of our tours are fully customizable.

3. Weather Tips for a Family Trip in Italy

Summer is often the time for families to travel, due to children's summer school vacations.

Of June, July, and August, June is the best choice because of the cooler weather and relatively smaller crowds.

July and August are the high season months in Italy, and it is hot in these months. If you are traveling during this time, the following tips may be helpful:

1. Be sure to book your tickets to attractions and museums in advance. Otherwise, it is very likely that you would be waiting in long lines, which would be unbearable for adults, not to mention children. On our tour, we will arrange skip-the-line tickets for you in advance.

2. In the morning or 2 hours before an attraction closes may be the best time of day when there are relatively fewer visitors. Visiting at these times could avoid both the crowds and the heat.

3. On a hot afternoon, letting the kids enjoy playing in the hotel pool could be a better option than visiting attractions under the hot sun.

You could learn more about Italy travel and weather on Best Times to Visit Italy .

4. How to Choose Family-Friendly Hotels in Italy

When choosing the area for accommodation, most of the attractions in Italian cities are typically concentrated in the city center or historical areas. These areas are recommended for family accommodation for convenient transportation, more dining options, and shopping and entertainment.

When choosing rooms, usually a family suite is a more common choice. There are also some hotels that could include extra beds for an additional charge.

In summer, booking a hotel with a pool is one way to release your kids' energy.

We could assist in selecting the right hotel for you based on your preferences. Feel free to contact us .

5. Consider Your Budget for a Family Tour in Italy

A family of four embarking on a 1-week tour of Italy could expect expenses ranging between 11,000 and 14,000 USD. Children under 10 years old might benefit from a travel discount of 30–50%.

The price is based on a comfortable private family tour, including a private car service, private guide service, train/flight tickets within Italy, 4-star hotels, tickets for attractions, and full-day itineraries.

You could learn more by reading our article: How Much Does a Trip to Italy Cost?

6. Recommended Ways to Travel Around Italy

There are two recommended ways to travel around Italy: by train and private transfers.

High-speed trains are the main way for many tourists and locals to get around Italy. Usually, the journey between adjacent major cities takes 1–2 hours.

The train experience could be part of the travel experience. But taking care of your kids and luggage at the same time could be a challenge.

We recommend booking a Prima seat (first-class seat) so that you would have more luggage space and the cabin environment would be better.

A hassle-free way to travel is by private transfer, taking your family directly from your hotel to your next destination. During the drive, you could enjoy the scenery along the road, ask questions of our knowledgeable driver, and stop and rest as you like.

All transportation within Italy would be included in our private tour service, whichever way of traveling you prefer.

  • Trivia Like the previous film, The Trip (2010) , Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan improvised their scenes together.
  • Goofs Toward the end of the movie (33 minute to the end), they are showing and commenting about a fruit they call "kumquat" which is in fact a "Physalis" also called "Cape Gooseberry", a fruit originally from Chile and Peru. A Kumquat is like a miniature orange, which can be eaten whole, or used in making marmalade. It has a very sharp flavour. A physalis has a paper-like husk like a tomatillo and is very sweet when ripe.

Steve : [In reference to Alanis Morissette] You know I can see the appeal in a woman like this. Volatile women are always sexy when you first meet them but two years down the line you're sorta saying things like, 'can you just put the lids back on eh... on these jars please.'

Budgeting Your Trip

With some research and careful consideration, you can create a trip that fits your budget, travel style, and interests.

Italy can be an expensive destination.

But there are ways to save money without sacrificing the quality of your trip.

Consider the following:

  • Travel during the shoulder season (spring or fall) instead of the peak season (summer) to save money on flights and accommodations.
  • Look for budget-friendly accommodations, such as hostels or Airbnb rentals.
  • Take advantage of free activities, such as visiting public parks and museums.
  • Use public transportation instead of taxis or private transfers.

To help you budget for your trip, use a table like the one below to compare costs for different destinations and activities.

Choosing Your Destinations

Italy has so many destinations to choose from.

So it’s important to narrow down your options based on your interests and travel style.

Here are some things to consider:

  • How much time do you have? If you only have one week, consider sticking to one or two destinations. If you have ten days or more, you can add more destinations to your itinerary.
  • What are your interests? Are you interested in art and history? Food and wine? Outdoor activities? Beaches ? Italy has something for everyone, so choose destinations that align with your interests.
  • What is your travel style? Do you prefer big cities or small towns? Do you like to stay busy or take things slow? Do you like to stay in one place or move around frequently?

Below are some popular destinations to consider:

  • Rome: Home to iconic landmarks like the Colosseum and the Vatican and some of the best food and wine in Italy.
  • Florence: A city known for its art and architecture, including the famous Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery.
  • Venice: A unique city built on water, with romantic canals and stunning architecture.
  • Tuscany: A region known for its rolling hills, vineyards, and charming towns like Siena and San Gimignano.
  • Cinque Terre: A series of five colorful towns along the Italian Riviera, known for their hiking trails and stunning views.

Determining Your Travel Time

When planning your Italy itinerary, it’s important to consider travel time between destinations.

Italy has an excellent train system that makes it easy to get around, but some destinations are further apart than others.

  • How much time do you want to spend traveling? If you want to minimize travel time, choose destinations that are closer together.
  • Are there any events or festivals you want to attend? For example, August is a popular time to visit Italy because of the Ferragosto holiday, but it can also be crowded and expensive.
  • What is the best time to visit Italy? Spring and fall are generally considered the best times to visit Italy because of the mild weather and fewer crowds.

Don’t forget to leave some flexibility in your schedule for unexpected discoveries and experiences.

Major Cities to Visit

Cultural Highlights

Colosseum in rome.

Colosseum in Rome

Italy is a country known for its rich culture and history.

Thus, there are plenty of cultural highlights that you won’t want to miss during your trip.

One of Italy’s most famous cultural landmarks is the Colosseum in Rome.

This ancient amphitheater was once the site of gladiator battles and other public spectacles, and today it stands as a testament to the power and grandeur of the Roman Empire.

Another must-see attraction in Rome is the Pantheon, a stunning temple that dates back to the 2nd century AD.

Its impressive dome and intricate interior design make it a true masterpiece of ancient architecture.

Vatican Museums in Rome

If you’re interested in Renaissance art, head to the Vatican Museums in Rome.

Here, you can see some of the world’s most famous works of art, including Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling .

Duomo in Florence

In Florence, you can visit the Duomo, a massive cathedral that dominates the city’s skyline.

Its iconic red dome symbolizes the city’s cultural heritage and is a testament to the skills of the Renaissance architects who designed it.

Accademia Gallery in Florence

For art lovers, a visit to the Accademia Gallery in Florence is a must.

Here, you can see Michelangelo’s famous statue of David and other works by Renaissance masters like Botticelli and Ghirlandaio.

St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice

Finally, if you’re in Venice, be sure to visit St. Mark’s Basilica.

The church is a stunning example of Byzantine architecture covered in intricate mosaics and other works of art.

Italian Cuisine

Regional specialties.

Each region of Italy has a unique cuisine, and it’s worth exploring as many as you can during your visit.

In the north, you’ll find rich, hearty dishes like risotto and polenta.

In the central regions, pasta is king, with specialties like carbonara and cacio e pepe.

.In the south, seafood takes center stage, with dishes like spaghetti alle vongole and fritto misto.

Some of the best restaurants in Italy are family-run trattorias that serve traditional dishes made with local ingredients.

Don’t be afraid to ask your server for recommendations or try something new.

Wine Tasting

Italy is home to some of the world’s best wines.

As such, wine tasting is a must-do activity during your visit.

From the crisp whites of the north to the full-bodied reds of the south, there’s a wine for every palate.

Many wineries offer tours and tastings, and some even have restaurants on-site where you can enjoy a meal paired with their wines.

If you’re not sure where to start, ask your hotel or a local tour operator for recommendations.

Gelato Sampling

Gelato Sampling

No trip to Italy is complete without sampling some gelato.

This creamy, flavorful treat is a national obsession.

So, don’t be surprised to find gelaterias on every corner.

Look for gelaterias that make their gelato on-site using fresh, natural ingredients.

Some of the best gelaterias in Italy are small, family-run shops that have been around for generations.

During my visit to Italy, I made it a point to try gelato in every city I visited.

My favorite was a small shop in Rome that made their gelato with fresh fruit and cream.

It was so good I went back for seconds.

Accommodation Options

Choosing hotels.

Hotels are a great choice if you’re looking for comfort and convenience in your Italy stay.

The best hotels in Italy range from luxurious five-star resorts to budget-friendly options.

If you’re looking for the best hotels in Italy, consider staying in Rome, Florence, or Venice.

These cities have some of the most iconic hotels in the country.

Consider factors like location, amenities, and price when choosing a hotel.

Want to be close to the city center or in a quieter neighborhood?

Or do you need a pool or a gym?

Perhaps you are willing to pay extra for a spa or a restaurant?

Make a list of your must-haves and use it to narrow down your options.

Renting Villas

If you’re traveling with a group or looking for a more private and authentic experience, renting a villa might be a good option.

Villas are typically located in the countryside or smaller towns and offer more space and privacy than hotels.

They’re also a great choice if you’re planning to stay in one place for an extended period.

Staying in Hostels

On a tight budget or looking to meet other travelers?

Staying in a hostel might be a good option.

Hostels offer shared or private rooms and usually have a common area where guests can socialize.

They’re also a great choice when traveling solo and looking for a more social experience.

When choosing a hostel, consider factors like location, price, and atmosphere.

Do you want to be close to the city center or in a more residential area?

A party hostel or a more laid-back one?

Make sure to read reviews and check the amenities before booking.

Getting Around Italy

Public transportation.

Italy’s public transportation system is extensive and reliable, making it an excellent option for budget-conscious travelers.

Buses and trains are the most common forms of public transportation.

They can take you to most destinations throughout the country.

If you’re planning to use public transportation frequently, consider purchasing a regional or national pass .

These passes can save you money and make it easier to travel around Italy.

Renting a Car

Renting a car in Italy gives you the freedom to explore the country at your own pace.

But it’s important to keep in mind that driving in Italy can be challenging.

This is especially the case in larger cities like Rome and Florence.

If you do decide to rent a car, make sure to familiarize yourself with Italy’s traffic laws and be prepared for narrow roads and aggressive drivers.

Train Travel

Train travel is one of the most popular ways to get around Italy for a good reason.

Italy’s train system is efficient, affordable, and covers most of the country.

If you plan to travel by train, consider purchasing a Eurail pass .

This pass allows you to travel on most trains in Italy and other European countries for a set period.

Taking a tour is a great way to see the sights in Italy without worrying about transportation.

Many different types of tours are available, from walking tours to food tours to wine tours.

Traveling with your family?

Look for tours specifically designed for families with children.

These tours often include activities that are fun and engaging for kids.

When drafting these itineraries, I took into account the following:

  • The desire of most first time visitors to cover a lot of ground to make the most of their time
  • The most common areas first time visitors wish to see during their trip
  • Places most enjoyable with kids / for kids
  • Actual connections between places: If I recommend a day trip from A to B by train, this is becasue a train connection is avaiable (at the time of writing at least), they are not just ‘for inspiration’
  • Practical travel time between places, so you are not on the go all the time
  • The need for families with small kids to minimize the number of accommodation changes
  • Down time for kids / possible jet lag on arrival: in most cases (not all), I have not foreseen driving on arrival.

This list of tips for visiting italy with kids was written by family travel expert marcie cheung and contains affiliate links which means if you purchase something from one of my affiliate links, i may earn a small commission that goes back into maintaining this blog..

We just got back from visiting Italy with kids and it was quite the learning experience. The last time we visited Italy with kids, our oldest was a toddler and things have changed a bit.

So, I figured I would jot down some of my tips for how to plan and prepare for a stress-free vacation to Italy.

Keep scrolling to get all the information you need to plan the ultimate Italy family vacation .

Before You Go to Italy with Kids

Planning a family trip to Italy can seem overwhelming, but a little preparation can make all the difference.

From choosing kid-friendly destinations to timing your trip just right, here are a few tips to make your Italian vacation memorable and stress-free.

Researching and Selecting Family-Friendly Destinations

Italy is brimming with kid-friendly destinations, but it’s important to do some research and select ones that align with your family’s interests and dynamics.

Image of two boys at the Trevi Fountain in Rome

Popular cities like Rome , Florence , and Venice are filled with cool museums, parks, and historical sites that are usually a hit with kids of all ages.

For families seeking outdoor adventures, consider popular tourist destinations such as the picturesque Dolomites or the beautiful beaches of Sardinia.

Timing Your Trip

Italy is lovely throughout the year, but for optimal weather and to avoid heavy tourist crowds, consider visiting in late spring or early autumn.

These periods offer mild temperatures perfect for exploring and less crowded attractions, making it more enjoyable for you and your kids.

Image of the Vatican Museums packed with tourists

I know that summer is the peak tourist season in Italy but it is HOT. If you do visit Italy in summer, plan on doing daily siestas in the afternoon to avoid heatstroke.

Travel Documents and Insurance

Ensure all passports are up-to-date with at least six months of validity beyond your travel dates. I have a whole post about how to apply for a passport for a child . If required, apply for visas well in advance.

How to Apply for a US Passport for a Baby or Child, tips featured by top US travel blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Learn how to get a passport for a child (or baby) with these 8 easy steps. You’ll even find some secret, expert tips to help expedite the application process

Additionally, it’s essential to have comprehensive travel insurance that covers health emergencies.

Traveling with children can sometimes be unpredictable, so it’s always better to be prepared for any unforeseen situations.

Packing Essentials

When it comes to packing for Italy, think of comfort and convenience. Pack lightweight, easy-to-layer clothing to accommodate varying weather conditions.

Image of a suitcase with a straw hat, toiletries, and sunglasses

Comfortable walking shoes are a must for all the exploring you’ll do. Don’t forget essentials like sunscreen , hats , and refillable water bottles .

Consider packing a lightweight stroller for younger kids, as there can be a lot of walking involved in Italy’s cities. Or use a baby carrier for babies and toddlers. Don’t pack your favorite stroller because it will endure an insane amount of wear and tear.

Lastly, pack a few familiar snacks and entertainment options to keep the little ones happy during transit times.

Getting Around Italy with Kids

Public transportation in italy.

We LOVE using the train in Italy because it’s just so convenient for day trips and for moving from one part of your Italy itinerary to the next.

Image of a boy looking out the window on a train from Venice to Florence

If you don’t mind spending a few extra bucks, I recommend splurging for the premier class tickets because you’ll usually get Wi-Fi and more comfortable seats. But, the other classes are still okay for families.

Rome Buses and Metro

I personally want to warn you about taking the Metro in Rome. I had heard for years about how sketchy the Rome Metro can be.

Image of a crowded bus in Rome in June

But, it wasn’t until I had my phone stolen out of my pocket while riding the Metro with my kids that I really understood. Locals know who to watch out for but tourists (especially moms who are distracted) are an easy target.

The buses in big cities like Rome can also be challenging when they are packed, as you’ll probably need to hang onto your kids.

Taxis and Uber in Italy

We primarily use taxis and Uber when we visit Italy with kids. It feels safer than the Metro, it’s a more comfortable ride, and we usually save time.

For our last trip, our kids were 6 years old and 9 years old and we didn’t worry about car seats. But, we did make sure they buckled up.

Renting a Car in Italy

Another option is to rent a car in Italy. This is my suggestion if you’re staying in Tuscany or somewhere outside of Rome or Florence.

If you’re staying in a main city, it can be really intense to drive in Italy.

We’ve rented vans in Tuscany for big family trips and it still is stressful because of the narrow roads.

Visiting Italy with Babies and Toddlers

I wouldn’t consider Italy to be a very stroller-friendly country, for the most part. I mean, there are lots of cobblestone roads and it can not only be a bumpy ride, but it can also mean your stroller will get lots of wear and tear.

Image of a dad with a toddler on his shoulders at the Colosseum in Rome

If you’re visiting Italy with a baby or toddler, I’d recommend using a baby carrier instead. We really liked using our Baby Tula carriers when we visited Italy with a toddler.

Book a Family Photo Shoot

Whenever we travel, we almost always book a family photo shoot with Flytographer. They are super easy, affordable, AND guarantee that I’ll be in some photos. You can get $25 off if you book through this link or use the code HAWAIITRAVEL.

Visiting Northern Italy vs Southern Italy with Kids

Italy, with its diverse landscapes and rich history, offers a multitude of experiences for traveling families.

Here’s what to expect when visiting the Northern and Southern regions of the country with kids.

Northern Italy with Kids

Northern Italy, home to bustling metropolises like Milan , historical gems like Venice , and the natural allure of the Italian Lakes , offers a variety of child-friendly attractions.

In Milan, the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology with its interactive exhibits can be fascinating for kids.

Image of a boy on a bridge in Burano near Venice

Venice’s unique water-bound environment can provide a thrilling adventure with gondola rides and explorations of islands like Murano and Burano .

For nature-loving families, the Italian Lakes, such as Lake Como and Lake Garda , offer scenic beauty and outdoor activities. The Gardaland amusement park near Lake Garda is a kid favorite.

Accommodations in Northern Italy can range from luxury hotels to family-friendly agriturismos, providing opportunities to explore the local farming culture.

Southern Italy with Kids

Southern Italy, characterized by its rugged coastline, sun-kissed beaches, and a more laid-back lifestyle, can be an ideal destination for families seeking a balance of relaxation and cultural exploration.

Street in Pompeii, Italy. Pompeii is an ancient Roman city died from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the 1st century.

In Naples , children can explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum . The region’s famous pizza and gelato can be a hit with the younger ones.

The Amalfi Coast and Capri offer beautiful beaches and boating opportunities. In Puglia , unique experiences like staying in a traditional Trulli house can delight children.

Sicily , with its intriguing mythology around Mount Etna, the puppet theatres of Palermo, and the Valley of the Temples, provides a mix of education and entertainment.

Remember, the pace can be slower in the South, which can be perfect for leisurely family vacations but might require a more flexible schedule.

Where to Stay in Italy with Kids

Finding the right place to stay can significantly impact your family vacation in Italy.

Here are some Italy family travel tips to help you select the perfect kid-friendly accommodations in Italy.

Save Money with Points Here are the best credit card offers for families who travel and want to use points to pay for airfare and hotels.

Choosing Family-Friendly Accommodations

When planning your trip, prioritize accommodations that cater specifically to families.

These could be hotels with spacious family rooms, vacation rentals offering cribs and high chairs, or resorts with dedicated children’s programs and facilities.

Locations within walking distance to major attractions or close to public transportation can also make your stay much more convenient. Check out our top kid-friendly hotels in Rome , Florence , and Venice .

Exploring Accommodation Options

Italy offers a wide variety of accommodation types. Traditional hotels often provide convenient amenities such as room service, daily housekeeping, and sometimes even a concierge to assist with planning activities.

This is typically what we do when we travel to Italy with kids.

Apartments can be a great option for families seeking a home-like environment, with the convenience of a kitchen and separate living and sleeping areas.

We did this when we stayed in Rome with extended family and it was great to have a space to hang out together.

This type of accommodation can also provide a more immersive experience, especially if located in a residential neighborhood.

For a unique and charming experience, consider an ‘agriturismo,’ a farm-stay offering a taste of rural life. Here, your family can enjoy fresh food, engage with nature, and maybe even participate in farm activities.

Ensuring Child Safety

No matter where you choose to stay, child safety should be paramount. Check for potential hazards such as unprotected balconies, steep staircases, or unsecured furniture.

Don’t be shy about asking if the property provides safety gates or corner guards if needed.

Kid-Friendly Amenities and Services

Choose accommodations that offer kid-friendly amenities. Look for properties with pools or play areas, child-oriented activities, or even babysitting services for an occasional parents’ night out.

In-room conveniences like a mini-fridge for storing snacks, free Wi-Fi for entertainment, and a bathtub for easy bath times can also make your stay more comfortable.

Navigating the beautiful but sometimes busy streets of Italy with children can seem daunting.

However, the country’s varied transportation options make it easier to explore and ensure an enjoyable journey for your entire family.

Using the Train

Italy’s extensive and efficient train network makes it a popular choice for families. The Trenitalia and Italo train services connect major cities and regions, making it a breeze to get from, say, Rome to Florence.

Image of a dad and son on a train to Cinque Terre Italy

Family compartments and discounts for children are available on some routes. Remember to bring activities to keep your kids occupied during longer journeys.

Make sure to get to the train station early so you can grab some snacks, drinks, and even books/entertainment.

Public Transportation

In cities like Rome, Florence, and Milan, the public transportation system of buses, trams, and metro lines can be a convenient way to get around.

However, they can get crowded during peak hours. It’s always wise to keep an eye on your kids and belongings.

Also, strollers may be challenging to maneuver on buses or trams during busy times.

Taxis/Ubers

Taxis can be a quick and convenient way to reach specific Italian destinations, especially when your kids are tired or the weather is uncooperative.

Uber operates in many Italian cities, offering a familiar and often efficient mode of transport.

Keep in mind that car seats are not commonly available in taxis or Ubers, so you might need to bring a portable one if your child requires it. We love using the Bubble Bum .

Renting a Car

If you’re comfortable driving in a foreign country and plan to explore more rural areas or small towns, renting a car can be a great option.

It provides the convenience of setting your own schedule and can be less stressful than navigating public transportation with kids.

However, remember that Italian cities often have restricted traffic zones (ZTLs) where non-residents can’t drive, and parking can be challenging. Be sure to request child car seats when you rent the car if necessary.

Eating in Italy with Kids

One of the greatest joys of traveling to Italy is the food. Fortunately, Italian food is generally very kid-friendly, with a ton of options for pasta, pizza, and gelato.

Here are some tips for making your family’s culinary adventure in Italy enjoyable and stress-free.

Introducing Italian Cuisine to Kids and Managing Picky Eaters

Italian cuisine goes far beyond spaghetti and pizza. Encourage your kids to try new dishes, but be mindful of their preferences.

family guy trip to italy

A simple pasta with butter or olive oil is commonly available if they’re not feeling adventurous. And you can always ask for bread that they can dip in olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar.

Gelato or sorbet can be a delicious treat for after meals (or in between).

Finding Family-Friendly Restaurants and Trattorias

Most Italian restaurants and trattorias welcome children, but it’s always helpful to look for those that are especially kid-friendly.

Places with a relaxed atmosphere, outdoor seating, or even a children’s menu can be a good choice. We’ve had good luck using Yelp or asking the concierge at our hotels.

Pizzerias can be particularly great for families, offering a casual environment and a universally loved dish.

Exploring Local Markets and Food Festivals

Visiting local food markets can be an exciting family food adventure. Children can learn about different fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and other local produce.

Food festivals, which are common in Italy, offer a chance to try a variety of dishes and engage with local culture.

Tips for Dining Out with Kids

In Italy, dining is a leisurely experience. To avoid long waits, consider dining a bit earlier when restaurants are less busy.

Image of kids playing with activity books at a table at a restaurant in the Vatican City

I suggest bringing activity books, coloring books with crayons, sketch pads, or small toys/fidgets that can keep kids entertained.

It’s customary in Italy to ask for the check (il conto) when you’re ready to leave. Tipping is appreciated but not mandatory – a couple of euros or up to 10% for excellent service is common.

Must-See Italy Attractions for Families

Italy is a treasure trove of attractions perfect for families. Whether it’s historic landmarks, stunning beaches, interactive museums, or charming parks, there’s something for every family to enjoy.

Family-Friendly Attractions in Major Cities

Visit the iconic Colosseum and make history come alive for your kids.

The Boboli Gardens , with its expansive greenery, is perfect for a family picnic. Don’t miss the Galileo Museum , filled with interactive exhibits that will intrigue kids and adults alike.

A gondola ride through the city’s waterways can be a thrilling experience for children. Also, visit the islands of Murano and Burano to see the colorful houses and glass-making demonstrations.

Italy’s Beautiful Beaches and Coastal Towns

Italy’s coastline is dotted with family-friendly beaches. The shallow waters of Sardinia’s Costa Rei are perfect for little ones. Towns like Positano on the Amalfi Coast offer stunning views and a relaxing atmosphere.

Kid-Friendly Museums and Interactive Exhibits

Most of Italy’s museums cater to younger audiences with interactive exhibits. The Leonardo da Vinci Museum in Florence and Rome’s Explora , a children’s museum, are exciting and educational.

Image of two boys at the Da Vinci Museum in Florence

The Museo Storico della Didattica in Rome offers a unique look at the history of education, which kids might find intriguing.

Outdoor Parks and Playgrounds

Italy’s parks are perfect for a day of family fun. Rome’s Villa Borghese includes a zoo, puppet theatre, and boat rentals.

In Florence, the Torrigiani Garden is a secret green haven within the city. Look out for local playgrounds for a break during your city explorations.

How to Keep Kids Engaged and Entertained

Keeping your children entertained throughout your trip to Italy is key to ensuring everyone has a great time.

Here are some strategies to make sure the younger members of your family remain engaged and captivated during your Italian adventure.

Planning Age-Appropriate Activities and Kid-Friendly Tours

Tailor your itinerary to your children’s age and interests. Younger kids might enjoy a puppet show at the Teatro dei Burattini in Florence, while older children may appreciate exploring the ancient ruins of Rome or the spooky catacombs.

Image of people in front of the Colosseum in Rome

Some tour companies offer kid-friendly tours with guides skilled at making history and culture fun and engaging for kids. Get ideas with my 10-day Italy with kids itinerary .

Engaging Kids in Italian Culture Through Language and Traditions

Involve your children in the local culture. Teach them common Italian phrases or take a short language class together. Participating in local festivals or traditional events can also provide an enriching experience.

Watching a local soccer match or learning to make pizza or gelato are also fun ways to immerse in Italian culture.

Enjoying Outdoor Adventures and Nature Activities

Balance city tours with outdoor adventures. Italy’s diverse landscapes offer plenty of opportunities for activities like hiking, cycling , or even sailing .

Image of a boy on a ferry in Cinque Terre ITaly

Visit national parks and nature reserves, or take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea. These experiences can provide a refreshing break from the bustling cities.

Incorporating Educational Experiences and Workshops

Turn your vacation into a fun learning experience. Museums often provide workshops for children.

For example, the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence has a secret passages tour that makes history exciting. Participating in a cooking class is another great way to learn about Italian culture while picking up a new skill.

Health and Safety Considerations

Traveling abroad with children requires extra attention to their health and safety.

Here are some crucial considerations to ensure your family’s well-being during your trip to Italy.

Ensuring Your Child’s Well-Being During the Trip

Before your departure, ensure your children are up-to-date on routine vaccines. It may also be a good idea to have a check-up with your pediatrician and discuss any travel-specific health concerns.

Find out the best things to pack in a first aid kit for kids by top family travel blog Marcie in Mommyland. Image of a bunch of first aid stuff.

Pack a first-aid kit with essentials like band-aids, antiseptic wipes, and child-friendly medication for common ailments like fever or upset stomach.

And make sure you have enough prescribed medications to last for your entire trip (plus a few extra days in case of travel delays). It can be super hard to get prescribed medications in another country.

Handling Medical Emergencies and Finding English-Speaking Healthcare Providers

Italy has excellent healthcare facilities, but in case of a medical emergency, it’s important to know what to do.

The emergency number in Italy is 118 . Many doctors and medical staff speak English, especially in larger cities. Consider getting travel insurance that includes medical evacuation for more serious situations.

Staying Safe in Crowded Tourist Areas and Using Child Safety Measures

Italy’s popular tourist spots can get quite crowded, making it essential to keep a close eye on your children.

Consider using child safety measures like Apple Air Tags , especially for younger kids. Discuss safety rules with your children such as staying close and what to do if they get lost.

Dealing with Jet Lag and Maintaining a Routine While Traveling

Jet lag can affect children, too. Start adjusting your child’s sleep schedule a few days before departure to lessen the impact.

During your trip, try to maintain a routine similar to home, balancing sightseeing with rest and relaxation.

Regular meal times and enough sleep can help your child adjust to the new time zone and keep them in good spirits. We usually use melatonin at night to ensure that our kids fall asleep AND stay asleep so they get enough rest.

Language and Communication Tips

Communicating effectively while traveling in Italy can enhance your family’s overall experience.

Here are some helpful tips to overcome language barriers and make your trip smoother and more enjoyable.

Learning Basic Italian Phrases for Communication

While many Italians speak English, particularly in major cities and tourist areas, it’s always appreciated when visitors make an effort to speak the local language.

Basic phrases like “Grazie” (Thank you), “Per favore” (Please), “Dove è…?” (Where is…?), and “Parla inglese?” (Do you speak English?) can go a long way.

Teach your kids these phrases too – it’s not only practical but also makes for a fun learning experience. We like to use Duolingo before our trips so that our kids are familiar with key phrases.

Utilizing Translation Apps and Pocket Dictionaries

Having a translation app on your phone, such as Google Translate , can be incredibly useful. These apps often include audio pronunciation guides, and some even have a feature to translate text from photos, which can be helpful for menus or signs.

A pocket dictionary is another useful tool, especially in areas with unreliable internet connections. We like to give them to our kids so they have a job to do when we’re navigating the city.

Encouraging Kids to Interact with Locals and Learn the Language

Encourage your children to practice their Italian with locals. This can be a fantastic learning opportunity and a chance to make new friends.

Simple interactions like ordering at gelato shops or asking for directions can be great practice. And if nothing else, they can greet people or say thank you.

Overcoming Language Barriers for a Smoother Travel Experience

Remember, communication is more than just language. Non-verbal cues, like gestures and expressions, can also convey meaning.

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes or sounding funny, as locals usually appreciate the effort and are happy to help.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Trip to Italy is the excellent sequel to the 2011 British comedy-drama The Trip . The restaurant review road trip set-up is the same as before and the two lead characters -- improvised fictional versions of comedic actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon -- continue the one-upmanship from the first movie. Womanizing and infidelity occur, along with strong bad language, such as "d--k," "bloody," and variants of "f--k." Characters drink alcohol but not to excess. During a dream sequence, a character's stomach is slashed and a large, bloody wound is shown. Roles are reversed this time around, with "good guy" family man, Brydon, committing adultery -- although this occurs off screen. There is also some sexual humor.

What's the Story?

In THE TRIP TO ITALY, fictionalized versions of comedic actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are commissioned to do another restaurant review road trip. This time the trip takes place in Italy, where temptation gets the better of them both.

Is It Any Good?

While 2011's The Trip was an excellent movie, but a hard ride to be along on, this is a deeper, more complex experience and one that is ultimately about acceptance of people's flaws. The Trip to Italy starts with a meta conversation between Coogan and Brydon , about how second films in series are never as good. It's a sign this trip could veer off on a pretentious, self-referential route. Thankfully a few minutes later, the familiar, naturalistic groove starts again as the two friends, tasked with reviewing restaurants, relax on their trip across a gloriously-shot Italy.

This time around, Brydon's character is the focus. Set up in the first movie as "the good guy" of the pair, an act of infidelity in Italy brings in another texture to the already rich characterization. In contrast, Coogan -- in a more reparative mindset than the selfish character in The Trip -- tries to improve relations with his children. He also attempts -- but fails -- to avoid alcohol. There are still some YouTube-ready scenes of the duo facing off with more celebrity impersonations. But the main thrust of the movie is a study of middle-aged men and their fears. By exploring what the pair are scared of reveals what drives them, and an extra couple of hours in their company results in a warmer movie -- fitting for the climate in which it's shot -- which takes care to show the characters' moments of kindness and humility.

Talk to Your Kids About ...

Families can talk about the amount of strong language in The Trip to Italy . Was it necessary to the story? Who do you think the movie's intended audience is? How can you tell?

What is the movie's attitude toward sex . Do characters seem more interested in casual sex or in establishing deeper connections? Parents, discuss your own values on the subject.

The two lead characters are constantly comparing themselves to other actors, each other, and historical figures. Do you think this is a healthy attitude? What might be another way to approach life and achievements?

The two lead characters talk a lot about getting older. How do they feel about getting older? How do you feel about getting older?

How does the architecture of Italy differ from where you live?

“We’ve Literally Had Zero Hiccups”

I highly recommend using Italy4Real. We have worked with them twice on two trips to Italy. Their recommendations are outstanding. They are extremely familiar with tours, guides, hotels, best travel spots, trains, etc…. All guides showed up on time and had a very warm, knowledgeable personality. So much so, we asked for the same guide again on our 2nd trip!!!!

Best Spot for Babies

Families with babies tend to gravitate towards South Sardinia because of the baby-friendly beaches. The waters here are quite calm and the beaches are sandy instead of rocky, making a nice, safe place for babies to enjoy the coastline. The hotels in this area are used to accommodating babies as well, so you will be sure to find a  coastal Italy vacation that works for your family.

Best Spot for Toddlers

Aside from the natural beauty of  Tuscany , this particular spot is great for toddlers. It’s a medieval town that is surrounded by historic walls and is mostly free of traffic. It’s spacious so that the children can play, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to stop off at for a meal. Lucca is mostly flat, making it easy for the kids to walk and for you to push a buggy. Toddlers will love to play at nearby Pinocchio Park too.

Best Spot for Grade School-Aged Children

Tips for Traveling to Italy with Children

  • Many shops and restaurants in Italy are closed from 1 pm until 4 pm. Make sure that you pack some snacks or get the kids fed before the restaurants and cafes shut down.
  • Bring nice clothes for the kids . Italian families take pride in their clothing and the way they look. Make sure to bring some nice outfits along with the more casual ones.
  • Learn a few key phrases in Italian so that you avoid misunderstandings. If your children have any allergies or special needs, make sure to figure out how to convey that in the local language.
  • Pack any essentials like baby food, diapers, and formula. While you can get these things in Italy, they may be more expensive and you might not find the kind that you usually use.
  • Plan as much as possible. Make sure to work out the accommodation, transportation, and the itinerary of activities before you leave for Italy. Traveling can be hectic and it will be better for the kids if you keep your trip running smoothly.
  • Write down the name and address of your hotel as well as your phone number and put it in the pocket or backpack of each of your children. If you somehow get separated, your kids can give the information to someone so that they can find you.

"It was a fantastic trip that was well planned out and put together. It was fast paced so be ready for constantly being on the go, but it was well thought out and the places we saw were incredible. I would say the only drawback was that the food wasn't the best for the first few dinners. Later in the trip, the food was awesome. Also, it's so fast paced that you'd better be ready to get up super early and constantly be moving from place to place. The bus was a bit slow for this fast paced tour but I'm grateful I saw the epic sites in Italy."

"Experienced an excellent tour led by the most knowledgeable, personable and professional tour director I have encountered over the course of 5 tours, 3 being with Trafalgar. Colleen is super efficient and this combined with her priority to satisfy each tour member's special needs, be they dietary, health-related or even pertaining to specialty shopping make her an extremely valuable asset to the Trafalgar family. Colleen took me to a pharmacy when my ankles swelled and tirelessly located several bookstores in various cities for me, all because she knew how important this was to me. She worked well with our professional driver Michele and kept us informed, entertained and educated about our surroundings, simultaneously. Colleen made this tour special and memorable for all 41 of us!"

"I took my 12 year old son on the Intrepid Family Adventure. We had an amazing time. The guide was helpful, considerate and lots of fun. Playing games with the kids in the pool and making sure everyone was comfortable and happy. The pace was fantastic for a family with the mornings full of exploring with the group and the afternoons reserved for free time for families to spend together. Our highlight was the sailing trip to Capri. Can't recommend highly enough"

"The quality of the hotels could have been better. They were clean but very outdated. Especially for the price paid. Very poor quality city tours in each location with minimal information on things to do with our free time. Did not know about the optional excursions until a couple of weeks before the trip which were of course more money. Our travel agent never informed us of this. I believe that for the money paid it should have been a better quality tour."

Reviews of Family Tours in Italy

"I wouldn’t change a thing. This was our first overseas trip with kids (8 &11) so we were a little trepidatious. Exodus travel had everything planed out perfectly. It was the right blend of incredible activity and free time. Our guide Savy always had an amazing 6th sense for just when the kids needed an ice cream recharge. 2 Tori in Agerola was a great place to stay and beautiful. It’s just above all the craziness of the coast but still very convenient. Not having to drive in Naples and the Amalfi coast yourself is probably worth the cost lol."
"Really fun mix of adventurous activities that are fun for kids and parents alike. Really thoughtful fun itinerary that helps beat some of the Italian summer heat. Rupert was a fantastic guide and all the people on our tour were super fun."
"This tour was a once in a lifetime experience....Fantastic! Would definetely recommend it to anyone!"

Stanley tucci is back in italy with an all-new travel food tv show.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

Deliciously appealing, Stanley Tucci has returned to Italy this month to film an all-new, 10-episode TV series for National Geographic network that celebrates food and travel in the land of his ancestors. It is tentatively titled Tucci: The Heart of Italy .

Pairing Nat Geo’s renowned expertise—creating stunning photography and evocative narratives—with Tucci , a multiple award-winning American actor, is a five-star recipe for success. Ever since the cancellation of Tucci’s previous culinary destination show, CNN’s Searching for Italy , which won Primetime Emmys for Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series, fans have enthused on social media about their hopes to watch more of Tucci unearthing tasty morsels and showcasing lovely landscapes in Italy’s distinctive regions.

In this fresh eye-opening iteration, which will also air on parent company Disney+, insatiable Tucci will step away from crowded spots to discover serene behind-the-scenes surprises, scrumptious sustenance and compelling stories, while talking and toasting with professional chefs, home cooks, farmers, fishers, winemakers and more. Expect classic Tucci charm, so smooth and inviting at times that he himself seems like an irresistible dessert. Among this year’s colorful touchdowns: Lazio, Marche, Sicily, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto.

Palermo in Sicily.

Savoring Tucci’s Best Of Italy

“National Geographic is all about adventure and exploration,” says Tucci, who is also a best-selling cookbook and memoir author . “I am honored to take viewers once again to Italy through the lens of food.” Adds Tom McDonald, executive vice president of global factual and unscripted shows at National Geographic, “This is the perfect home for Stanley to share his knowledge and passion for Italy’s people, food and culture. Our programming is all about inspiring a deeper connection to the world. With Stanley as their guide, audiences will be transported to places and to flavors they’ve never experienced before.”
