What to see and museums for children in Florence
Have you ever wondered if Florence is suitable for children? If you have thought to spend the next holiday in Tuscany with your children, today we want to suggest you a number of places that might please them and the cultural initiatives designed for the whole family. There are many suggestions for an itinerary in Florence with the kids. We want to give you just some ideas on how to spend your free time during your next stay at the Brunelleschi.
Here are some ideas to live Florence with children:
- take them to Piazza Duomo and go for a ride on a horse-drawn carriage,
- climb the 463 steps that goes to the top of the Brunelleschi’s Dome and enjoy a breathtaking view from up there,
- explore the city with the Family Tour,
- visit the exhibition From Kandinsky to Pollock, the Great Art of Guggenheim at Palazzo Strozzi and participate in one of the initiatives or workshops dedicated to families and children (click here to book).
Then, we report the parks where there are playgrounds for children in Florence:
- The Parco delle Cascine, which from Piazza Vittorio Veneto goes up to the Ponte all’Indiano with a play area or hire skates,
- the Giardino dell’Orticoltura, with its “tepidarium”, a spectacular iron and glass structure, designed to shelter plants during the winter months. The garden also has a children’s playground and it is connected directly to the Orti di Parnaso (also accessible from via Trento), with the characteristic stone fountain and stained glass in the shape of a dragon with his mouth open and teeth in full view!
- Garden of Strozzi Villa with games area, with access both from via di Soffiano and from via Monte Oliveto and via Pisana.
Moreover, you will find numerous facilities for your children at the Hotel Brunelleschi: from meal preparation service to a special menu at the restaurant, from the toilet seat adapters in the bathroom to the babysitting service on request. Our Family Rooms are spacious and comfortable!
We wait for you in the city to discover Florence for children!
