Summer in Tuscany - tips for holidays with children

Exciting sights, beautiful beaches and plenty of sun – these are just a few of the many reasons why Italy is a great destination for a summer holiday with children. In this guest article from the Landgut Rose Estate in the heart of Tuscany, we not only share with you three good reasons for this holiday region, but also a few tips for your packing list for your family holiday!

Holidays in Italy with children are a great pleasure because you can really experience the enthusiasm of the little ones at every step. Whether it is the beach or sightseeing - in Tuscany the list of things to do with the "bambini" ( Italian for: children ) is very long. In addition, the three following aspects the Italian region is a particularly child-friendly holiday destination!

Tips for holidays with children


The centres of many Tuscan towns are largely traffic-calmed, so there is little to be said against letting the children run around there (while you yourself are sitting quite comfortably in front of a restaurant and enjoying an aperitivo). This works particularly well, for example, in the beautiful Piazza del Campo in Siena, around the cathedral and town hall in Florence, but also in smaller towns such as San Gimignano, Pienza or Pietrasanta.

Tip for holidays with children: traffic-calmed streets


Many of these places have a whole host of child-friendly attractions to offer, which often also include an exciting story: from the starry sky under the dome of the cathedral in Siena, to the monumental Goliath-slayer David in Florence and the Leaning Tower in Pisa, to the families of San Gimignano who competed to build medieval "skyscrapers".


Of course, for most children, at least in summer, all the old stones are not nearly as interesting as il mare ( Italian for the sea ). The Tuscan beaches , for example in Versilia, are particularly practical for families because they are flat and often consist of fine sand. And anyone who has previously avoided the classic Italian bagni with their long rows of deck chairs and parasols might now think again: With a freshwater shower, changing table and restaurant behind you, beach life becomes a whole lot more comfortable. The beaches are pretty easy to get to from most places in Tuscany, but of course many accommodations also have a pool. The "agriturismi" in particular, i.e. holiday farms, with sometimes more, sometimes less agriculture, rent out apartments and offer families the perfect mix of swimming fun, nature experiences and space for everyone.

and that must be with:

In summer, of course, the classics: sunglasses and hats for everyone, as well as everyone's favorite toys that can also be used on a long car journey. The practical travel sizes from das boep ensure more space in your luggage, and can be used not only by children, but also by mom and dad! And of course: sufficient sun protection ! We recommend a mineral sunscreen without chemical UV filters , as it does not harm the marine environment and allows for safe bathing.

We have been using boep for our kids for years. Even though the three are no longer babies, the cream always reminds me of the baby days. All the products smell wonderful and look really great. I am always very happy that Michaela and her wonderful team support our families at the Toni Kroos Foundation and provide the kids with great products. #givethejoyoflifetogether
