Italy is an incredibly family friendly country.

The Italians love children and you’ll find that they are welcomed at restaurants (even if the restaurant isn’t the most practical in terms of offering high chairs). Most children will happily eat pizza and pasta so it’s easy to keep their stomachs full. And you can always go off-menu -restaurants will happily create a basic bowl of pasta with a tomato sauce for little ones.

Our family holiday in Lake Maggiore in the Italian Lakes this summer was simply magical. We fell head over heels in love with the region and became pro’s at jumping on and off boats to explore lakeside towns and local markets.
