Enjoy golden beaches, sparkling seas, beautiful countryside, exciting cities and great cuisine on family holidays in Italy. Whether you are looking for an activity based holiday or one full of cultural pursuits, let our experience and insider knowledge help you tailor the ideal Italy family holiday.
Italy is renowned for its family-orientated approach to life and Citalia is delighted to highlight a selection of hotels that cater for every family's needs.
We have carefully selected a range of hotels throughout Italy that will ensure a warm, child-friendly welcome for you and your family. Our hotels for families offer a range of facilities designed to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible; from exciting kid’s clubs and dedicated children’s pools, to early meal sittings and children’s menus at the restaurants. Many hotels also offer a range of sports activities, which are perfect for keeping older children entertained, and essentials such as cots and highchairs for the youngest guests.
Many of our selected family hotels are able to offer a choice of rooms and suites to perfectly suit your family’s needs, from interconnecting rooms to three-bedroom villas.
You’ll find full details of the facilities and family rooms available at each hotel on the individual hotel pages.
We understand how important it is to ensure a stress-free journey when travelling as a family. Our extensive selection of flights means that you are sure to find a flight that best suits you, and you have the flexibility to choose the day time you travel.
If you choose to fly with our sister airline, Thomson Airways, infants also receive a baggage allowance of 10kg. For a stress free flight you can pre-book group seating for a small charge with Thomson Airways and some other airlines, ensuring your family can sit together. Upgrades to premium cabins with more legroom, bigger seats and an increased baggage allowance may also be available. Our Travel Advisors will be able to inform you of the full range of options with your chosen carrier.
Following your flight, the quickest way to your hotel is to pre-book a private transfer. For full prices and details of our private transfers please ask at the time of booking.
At many of our hotels for families, up to two children can stay free when sharing a room with two adults. These exceptional offers are available for departure dates throughout the year, including school holidays, and we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Where free child places are not available, we are pleased to offer discounts for children and offers for children travelling with one parent.
