Walking through an ancient city where you can hear the sound of your footsteps is priceless, nowadays.
Verona is a great place to see, a city full of historic sites and is navigable by foot. Climb the winding stairs of the Lamberti Tower, show The Romeo and Juliet Balcony to your lovely children and tell them the story. Take your time to admire the Arena, eat a gelato, walk and plan your day to Gardaland, huge resort that is a fun theme park, maybe one of the best in the world. It is well worth a visit.
Bologna and coastline of Romagna
Emilia Romagna is a region of Northeast Italy. Capital is Bologna. Bologna is a large city (not too big) and is fabulous for a walk through the historic centre and if you want to eat the real amazing Italian (Bolognese!) lasagna!
Ravenna is famous for its beautiful Byzantine mosaics and very old 5th and 6th century churches. Not to underestimate, Ravenna is a a great biking town. Get your bikes and bike through town on the bike lanes and the dedicates bike paths out of the city together with your young guys.

Romagna is well-known for its coastline, ideal for fun, sun and tan. Rimini, for example, is a seaside resort, with miles of long beaches, equipped with umbrellas, beach chairs (everything a family would need).
Italy in Miniature (not so far from Rimini, to north) is a theme park where you can see historical monuments of Italy in miniature. If you want a ‘literal’ overview of the Italian country, this is the best way! Nothing is missing: Piazza San Marco in Venice and the Grand Canal, the Cathedral in Florence or St. Peter’s in Rome.
Not far from Rimini, you can relax in the Acquafan water park of Riccione. Children’s pools, shows, restaurants, cafes, kids play areas and a big wave pool.
The Amalfi Coast
“dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and . . . beckoningly real after you have gone.”
The cliff-hanging town of Positano, the beautiful 9th-century Roman Catholic cathedral of Amalfi, the extraordinary views from the popular Amalfi Coast route (SS 163 Amalfitana). A place to see at least once in your life, better with your family.
And if you could also take a boat tour to Capri and its Faraglioni…this risks beconming one of the best trips of your entire life!!
