Whether you’re after culture, action or relaxation, Italy has it all… Tuscany offers hill towns and vineyards to explore with some of the countries best wines. Milan, Florence and of course the capital Rome, all provide great shopping and cultural sight seeing opportunities, and for jaw-dropping views and scenic road trips Cinque Terre (pictured above) cannot be beaten.

The scenery completely surpassed our expectations and we were amazed at how much there is to do in the region with kids. Here I’ve shared our 15 things to do near Lake Maggiore with kids.
Discover Italy by train
