Activities for Families

Come with your young ones and fill their hearts and their curious minds with beauty and magic: we promise you some feel-good moments together, with activities packed with the right stimuli and a lot of healthy relaxation to wind down and recharge.

Choose your route

Browse our rich offer of activities conceived for families: you will find many ideas for a special visit. Our activities must be booked well in advance and your group must be at least 20 people. If your group is smaller, however, let us know you want to come, and we will try to fit you into another small group to reach the minimum number of participants.
