Whether it’s the coast or the Alps, the tranquil Mediterranean paradise of Italy is the perfect place to relax, unwind and soak up much needed sun. It’s also the ideal destination for adventures with the kids, creating memories that will last a lifetime. With its rustic charm, breath-taking scenery, lashings of culture, adventurous pursuits and modern marvels, Italy is ready to captivate travellers young and old.

Here are our top five to do in Italy with the kids:


Sailing is the perfect activity for families looking to spend their Italian escape making the most of the glorious blue seas and soaking up the warm climate. Italy’s beautiful coastline and crystal clear waters are a paradise for those who want to lose their landlubber status and enjoy an adventure on the waves. Join our Sicilian sailing school at Club Med Cefalu for a family-friendly introduction to life on the waves.


Have you considered a walking holiday in Italy? Get a guide and explore the very best of the country’s history, culture and natural beauty. Inspire your children’s curiosity and stimulate your sense of wonder with exciting explorations of cobbled streets, vast pine forests and active volcanoes. Our summer mountain holidays are perfect for cycling and walking holidays in Italy, with guided hikes at our beautiful resort in the Italian Alps, or explore the famous Mt Etna volcano at Club Med Cefalu. This holiday is exactly what your feet were made for!


Take a dip beneath the softly lapping sea for some truly magical family moments. A beautiful world of wildlife awaits adventurous snorkelers, where you can swim with all kinds of aquatic life from multicoloured shoals and starfish to monkfish and octopi. Take a dip beneath the clear waters of cefalu bay at our beautiful Sicilian resort and start your underwater family adventures.


Your kids could spend hours exploring the world outside your resort during our activity holidays in Italy. This beautiful country is bursting at the seams with charming architecture, engrossing history and world-renowned food, so go out and experience it all as a family. Lose yourself in the streets of surrounding villages, taste authentic pasta dishes at small local restaurants and travel back in time at ancient churches, temples and ruins.


Go beyond the French or Swiss Alps, and check out the snow scene in Italy. With dramatic mountain views and amazing Italian food, the Italian Alps are perfect for winter adventures for the whole family. Imagine speeding down beautiful slopes next to your loved ones, watching with pride as your children learn how to ski or snowboard for the first time, or having a family snowball fight among the pine trees and endless lengths of glittering snow.
Our family ski holidays in Italy are just as impressive and accommodating as their French and Swiss cousins, with snowsports classes for all skill levels.
