Italy is a great place for a family holiday, whether you’re looking for a relaxed stay by the beach or a holiday packed with activities and sightseeing. Italy is renowned for its family-orientated approach to life, and we offer a range of hotels that cater specifically to the needs of families.
Our family-friendly hotels have rooms and facilities designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible, offering everything from kids’ clubs and pools, to early meal sittings and children’s menus at the restaurants. Many also offer a selection of sports – ideal for keeping older children entertained – as well as essentials for those travelling with tots, like highchairs and cots. Inter-connecting rooms and suites are often available to give families a bit more space, too. You’ll find full details of what’s on offer on the individual hotel pages.
Take a look below at some of our recommended family holidays:

There are also special menus for little ones in most of the restaurants, and a wide variety of accommodation options.

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 and 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 Italy Experts 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.
