Florence with family: best ways to enjoy your trip

Destination Florence offers all kinds of family-fun ideas.

Nestled in its valley and hugged by the hills around it, Florence has a family-feel that welcomes visitors into its embrace. Its relatively small size means it’s easily walkable, with many public transport options also available to connect the endless number of spectacular sites. Even a gelato in any of the wonderful piazzas is a photo-worthy occasion in the veritable playground of a city.

There are myriad ways to spend your time here, with our Destination Florence recommended experiences ensuring fun for everyone.

Florentine museums and culture-hopping

Visiting museums in Florence is never a dull affair as many of them offer themed tours and activities for little ones so they are guaranteed an exciting learning experience, taking deep dives into culture that are enjoyable for all ages while make lifelong memories.

The Uffizi and Accademia are, of course, must-sees, but we also recommend the Stibbert Museum for its awe-inspiring array of objects from all over, traversing many eras and granting a true trip through time. Have a look through our other suggestions for family-friendly museums here

Take a tour of Florence through the lens of the Medici family, getting to know their history as you spend time with yours. The city owes many of its most impressive monuments to this noble family, and a tour through their legacy is a great way to spend your visit. 

Maybe little legs have gotten tired of all the walking along the cobbled streets, so hop in a sidecar to see the city from a completely new point of view! Take in some of the main sites as you all enjoy the experience of being whizzed through the city in a unique way. 

Legends and historic tales galore, a three-hour walking tour with a private guide will reveal all the stories of the city with your guide at your disposal to answer the many questions your younger companions are bound to ask (and not only)! The historic centre is thoroughly explored, with plenty of anecdotes and curiosities entertaining smaller visitors.
