This guide offers you the best things to see and do on a family vacation throughout Italy, including Rome, Venice, and Florence.

  •  "Let off steam" suggestions and eating options around each attraction enable the entire family to recharge.
  •  Maps outline the nearest parks, playgrounds, and public restrooms.
  •  "Take shelter" sections suggest indoor activities for rainy days.
  •  Language section lists essential words and phrases.
  •  Dedicated "Kids' Corner" features include cartoons, quizzes, puzzles, games, and riddles to inform and entertain young travelers.
