Beaches – There are plenty of beaches on the Tuscan coastline and along the North West coast which are perfect for families. If you are looking for a good beach holiday, Forte dei Marmi is an upscale, beach town on the border between Tuscany and Liguria and has sandy beaches, perfect for toddlers to paddle. The island of Elba, off the Tuscan coast is another great option for under 4s and offers stunning beaches and family friendly accommodation. Ferries to Elba depart from Piombino.
Public Pools – Many cities have public pools which are ideal for a break from the city or to cool down on warm summer days. These pools usually have cafes, restaurants and snack bars and plenty of green space to run around. In Florence, many of the hotels do not have swimming pools or you may opt for an apartment.
