Italy is not only about cultural, historical, and natural attractions, you’ll also find a good selection of theme parks in Italy for those days when you just want to have a giggle with the kids.
Keep in mind that it can get pretty hot in Italy during the summer months; if you have to stand in long lines it is easy for little ones to get dehydrated and sunburned. Make sure everyone drinks plenty of water during the day … And don’t forget the sunscreen! A hat is also recommended.
