Florence with Kids – Best Family Hotels

Florence Family Hotels – Tips and Recommendations

  • Booking.com is the best website for booking family apartments and hotels in Florence.
  • Eating, drinking, and relaxing in Piazza Santo Spirito is a highlight of a Florence visit. The best restaurant on the square is the wonderful Borgo Antico. Or grab a pie from the best pizzeria in Florence, Gusta Pizza, and eat on the steps of the square like the locals do.
  • The best gelato is at Gelateria Santa Trinita (south of Ponte Vechio).
  • This Pizza and Gelato making class is wonderful. Highly recommended and very kid-friendly.
  • Need a break from history and churches? Fox in a Box is a ton of fun for the whole family.

  1. Kid Friendly Cooking Class in Florence

    Our kids are 8 and 10. Would the pizza making class you mention above be a good fit for them?

      Absolutely. The instructors are great with kids. I think 5 and up (as long as they’re interested) would do fine.
