Top 5 Things to do on Italy Tours for Families

Visit Pompeii: Buried beneath tons of ash and pumice during the tragic eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD, Pompeii is one of the most compelling historic sites in the world. Now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the well-preserved ruins of the city give a fascinating insight into Roman life. A professional tour guide can lead you through the remains of houses, bakeries and bathhouses, where you’ll see the most beautiful frescoes decorating many of the interior walls. While the archaeological site is haunting, you’ll be mesmerised by the city ruins and the many artefacts that have been recovered over the centuries.

Walk Along the Rim of Mt Vesuvius: This huge volcano looms over the Bay of Naples and its catastrophic eruption in 79 AD was responsible for the destruction of the city of Pompeii. Just outside of Naples, Mount Vesuvius forms the ominous backdrop to Pompeii and is one of the most menacing active volcanoes in the world owing to the millions of homes that surround it. On Italy family trips an expert guide will lead you on a hike up to the tallest point of the volcano and from there you can walk around the main crater. This is an exhilarating and fascinating experience as you’ll also learn about its history and volcanic activity.

Kayak on the Amalfi Coast: The Amalfi Coast is one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world and a kayaking tour along its azure waters lets you see it from a different perspective. Spend half a day paddling below towering sea stacks and past sprawling beaches and ancient watch towers towards Runghetiello Grotto. This fabulous sea cave, which is named after a local fish, is great fun to explore and the children will be in their element here.

Go Swimming at Positano: Positano is a colourful town on the Amalfi Coast with brightly coloured houses clinging to the cliffsides and chic hotels draped in wisteria. Its main beach, known locally as Positano Spiaggia, is no less alluring with its gelato stalls and sun-bleached shoreline. Overlooked by rugged mountains and lapped by the Mediterranean-warmed waves, this is what kids’ dreams are made of. The waters are some of the clearest you’ll ever see and great for the children to swim in while you enjoy a little downtime in the sun.

Learn How to Make Pizza: There’s no denying that Italy is one of the prettiest countries in the world and its history is unrivalled, but you can’t have a family holiday here without paying homage to the pizza. This is its birthplace after all and what kids don’t love pizza? On our Pompeii and Pizza Family Holiday, all the family can enjoy a pizza-making class where you’ll learn how to create an authentic Neapolitan pizza. As well as discovering new cookery skills, you’ll also get to taste how unbelievably delicious traditional Italian pizza really is.

A wide range of wildlife spotted. We were extremely lucky to see Wild Dogs twice, a good number of White Rhino in Umfolozi and significant herds of elephant, Zebra and giraffe amongst many other animals.
Also had a good sighting of lions on our last day in Kruger.
Andrew, very well assisted by Trymore, was an excellent guide full of enthusiasm and a great host. Food prepared at the sites was very good as was the choice of restaurants on the occasions that we ate in towns.
There was a good close up experience with dolphins in Mozambique and it was the dolphins that approached the guests rather than the other way around.
The border crossing from Mozambique involved a lengthy delay as it was a Sunday and many workers travelling across to South Africa.
The lodges used were comfortable and well located.
Overall, a highly recommended trip for those who love wildlife although as always sightings can never be guaranteed.

Keith Ginnaw Southern Africa Safari: Kruger & Coast

Something of a bucket list holiday for me.
The combination of different locations was testament to the local knowledge of the tour organisers.
Yes the trip is full on, be prepared for the early starts and different activities, but they are worth it.
All very well organised, taking into account differing physical capabilities, and designed to get the best out of the specific area.
