Florence is considered one of the smaller cities in Italy, which means even the youngest family member can walk the city with no problem. Ponte del Vecchio is a family favorite, with beautiful views of the Arno River, with many shops and restaurants to enjoy. The kids will enjoy souvenir shopping, while parents enjoy the views and the upscale art and jewelry shops.
Kids can burn off some energy by running around the countless Piazzas in Florence, but we recommend the Piazza del Duomo. Piazza del Duomo is one of the most visited attraction in Europe, nit to mention Italy. The positive energy in the square is always palpable, with so much going on, from street artists, to parades, food tours and the laughter of the roughly 4.5 million visitors to the Duomo every year.
Every member of your family will love learning how to make authentic pizza, so you may want to consider signing up for a pizza making class. Florence is known for thin crust pizza traditionally fired in wood burning ovens. In our opinion, the only way to make pizza. Most kids love pizza and getting messy, so why not combine the two? When in Florence, there are many spots where you and the family can learn traditional pizza making and enjoy tasting the fruits of your labor.
