Ah, Italy. Land of sun, sea and scenery, whether the shoreline, mountains, lakes or beautiful historic cities. More importantly for some, don’t forget the pizza, pasta and ice creams! What better place to go on holiday? You’re in luck, because cheap family holidays to Italy are surprisingly easy to find.
You’re really spoilt for choice in Italy. Do you want stunning scenery? Try the Italian Lakes. It’s like the Lake District, only sunnier and with less waterproofs. It’s good enough for George Clooney after all, and you can spend your days wandering the towns and going for walks in the mountains by day. By night, you’ll be eating in a lakeside restaurant staring at the reflection of the lights twinkling in the lake. The children will love taking boat trips to get from town to town. For all the mums, keep an eye out for Gorgeous George himself and who knows, you might even spot him!
Fancy the delights of island living, with beaches and swimming in the Med? Try Sicily or Sardinia for a beach holiday with a difference. There are numerous options for the history-loving family: The City of Venice with its famous canals and picturesque bridges; Pisa with its landmark tower; and the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence. Don’t forget the daddy of them all, Rome, with its
Coliseum and temples among many other sights. For a more modern city, try Milan, but be sure to budget carefully if you’re a bit of a fashionista!
Shorter flight times usually mean cheaper flights, so Europe is a fantastic destination for those on a budget. Bargain Italy holidays are a great option which you should really consider. As a general rule, Italians love children and are very child-friendly, making Italy a great destination for a family holiday.
