Snoozy islands, tasty food and our pile of All Inclusive hotels make family holidays to Italy easy as pie – or pizza.


The hotels in Sorrento are expert hands when it comes to feeding families. Buffet restaurants serve homemade pizza, pasta and gelato. And there’s usually international options on the breakfast table. Sorrento is also a great gateway for day trips. The island of Ischia is a short boat ride away. Roman baths and an ancient castle star. Plus, the old town, Ischia Ponte, has a clutch of museums and eating spots.


Sicily is one of the biggest islands in Europe, pairing ancient towns with beach resorts. Giardini Naxos goes down especially well with families, thanks to its long activity list. There’s a harbour, old town and seaside prom. And it’s all topped off with Recanati — a kid-friendly zone serving up a funfair and watersports.


Italian families swear by the beaches in Marina di Ugento, Puglia. The bright blue lagoon here has powder-soft sands and shallow waters made for little kids. For a sandy spot with plenty of facilities, lay down your towel near Torre San Giovanni harbour.

Check out our family holidays to Italy — they deal out great travel deals in kid-friendly towns.
