Florence guide - For children
Florence is truly a destination that the entire family will enjoy. Kid are adored in Italy and are welcomed and catered for in bars and restaurants. Two recent laws have improved the situation for parents even further: the ban on smoking in restaurants and bars has made them far more family-friendly, while the law on disabled access make it far easier to take a pushchair into museums and churches.
Even with younger children you can do most of your sightseeing on foot. Kids will feel like they are going back in time with all of the old monuments and galleries but do make sure you leave time for some fun and some free play as well. Happy children are hydrated children, so be also sure to bring plenty of water along and to stop often for gelato at small cafes along the way.
With so many fascinating places to see and visit, children will never forget their trip to Florence.
