Italy is perfect for families. For UK families at least, the plane journey is manageable, the food delicious, the coffee strong and the history and architecture breathtaking. It’s the perfect destination for families stepping into independent travel for the first time.
- visiting Pompeii (without pushchairs if possible)
- a day-trip to Mt Vesuvius, Europe’s active volcano
- taking a ferry service to Capri – younger kids will love the miniature-sized cars and trucks that zip around the streets
