Our cities offer a wide range of experiences to enjoy and attractions to visit as a family. But what can we do with the whole family? Find out with us!

Turin, Milan, Florence and Rome are all family-friendly cities that offer plenty of special activities and experiences to share with your children.

Here are some fun and interesting ideas that allow us to spend free time with the people we love most!

Turin is home to one of the world’s most important museums: we’re talking about the Egyptian Museum of Turin.

Alongside the museum in Cairo, it’s one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of the art of Ancient Egypt and the oldest museum devoted to this ancient and wonderful civilization.

Inside you’ll find pharaohs’ tombs, mummies to haunt your dreams, jewelry and everyday objects that will take you straight into the past as you imagine life in that period of history.

It’s a fascinating and unique museum to say the least, and will leave the kids speechless, but adults will love it too. We recommend taking a guided tour to appreciate all the details and curiosities preserved in this wonderful museum.


national museum of cinema

Have you ever wondered what’s inside Turin’s most iconic building? We’ll tell you!

Inside the Mole Antonelliana, the symbol of the city, there’s a very special museum: the National Museum of Cinema.

The visit is enlivened by plenty of interactive scenarios, fun stories and games. This is a museum that will leave everyone speechless, awaken passions and reveal unknown stories about the history of film.

It’s an unusual experience that ranges from relaxing and watching a movie on a chaise longue to stepping inside a refrigerator!

castello sforzesco milan

The Castello Sforzesco in Milan is an interesting and special place. You could spend an entire day here, wandering around the wonderful museums it contains. You can stroll through its courtyards, visit the splendid Museum of Ancient Art and the Museum of Musical Instruments, all the way to the Rondanini Pietà Museum, where you can admire Michelangelo’s magnificent sculpture.

What’s more, you’ll be able to imagine life in Milan in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The castle is a real testament to the past; its towers, battlements and works by great artists (Mantegna, Leonardo and Michelangelo are just three of the many who worked here) will take you back to ancient times.

For children, the guided tour of Castello Sforzesco is a truly special experience that they’ll want to share with their friends and remember for a long time. Can we call it a fascinating real-life history lesson? The answer is definitely YES!



Have you ever been on board a submarine? Did you know that there’s one you can visit in the heart of Milan? Have you ever contemplated the world through a periscope?

Whether your answer is Yes or No, today you have the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful and unique experience with your children aboard the Toti, “anchored” at the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.

With educational tours, machines to try out, and creative workshops, the Enrico Toti submarine is waiting to show you the engine room, launch and maneuvering chambers, and the famous sonar.

Right in the center of Florence, there’s the opportunity to spend a fantastic family afternoon having fun and learning to cook.

With our chefs, you can learn about traditional Italian recipes, get your hands into the pasta dough and experiment with cooking techniques that will turn adults and children alike into master chefs.

You’ll experience the thrill of cooking in a professional kitchen combined with a fun family activity that you can replicate at home whenever you like.

Our Family Cooking Class gives you the opportunity to spend happy, relaxed time with your family. Cooking is an activity that connects, relaxes and excites, all at the same time.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind experience!


boboli gardens

Not everyone knows this, but in the very center of Florence there’s a wonderful, magical fairy-tale garden.

These are the Boboli Gardens behind Pitti Palace. These Medici gardens were designed on the classic Italian model that became the template for many European courts; today they contain statues, art, water features and plant displays that will leave you open-mouthed.

This is one of the best places for a family day out during your stay in the city: with the help of one of our expert guides, your little ones can discover Florentine history while exploring the gardens of the great Medici family.

Curious to discover this delightful place? Please don’t hesitate to contact us!


colosseum visit

Rome offers a thousand ideas for a family day out, but nothing compares to a visit to the Colosseum and the Imperial Forum, for adults and children alike.

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, the arena is thought to have held 50,000 to 80,000 people and was clad in snow-white marble. All kinds of events took place inside: gladiator combats, fights with wild animals and more.

This place makes children dream and sparks adults’ imagination: you’ll find yourself transported to another era, when patricians and plebeians enjoyed spectacles unlike any other.

A family day out with a guided tour of this extraordinary place, walking on the stands of the Colosseum and then exploring the Imperial Forums with your guide, is an experience that will leave vivid and lasting memories.


family cooking lesson

A family cooking lesson is one of the most fun experiences you can have.

If it happens in the center of Rome, with a professional chef, it’s as exciting for us as for our children.

Three hours of joy, getting your hands in the pasta to create delicious treats. Our chefs will follow you step by step, teaching you every trick to creating a good dish, while your junior chefs will have plenty of fun getting their hands dirty.

As well as creating wonderful memories, you can take the recipes you cooked away with you so you can make them again with your children in the comfort of your own home!

Enjoy your family day out!
