For kids in Tuscany
When you chose to bring your kids to Tuscany, it is most likely to be together with them and enjoy yourselves with a game of cards, a book, a good water fight or something along those lines.
But there are possibilities to go to exciting destinations in both small cities or at one of the weekly markets. There are many children families that enjoy their authentic and true holiday experiences in a nice and quiet pace.
If your children want (and you too..) to go to a water park, then the selection is actually quite limited. Along the coast line there are wonderful beaches with many different sports activities..
We know of a lovely water park near Sienna along with two large water parks in Cecina and Follonica, which is on the west coast.
There is a beautiful pool park for all ages – Mulino di Quercegrossa, which lies just north of Sienna. It is a nature park with 7 swimming pools that are in conjunction with each other. There is a 150 m long stream where you can swim against the stream or have a nice walk in the shallow water. There is a lake, a kids park, a whirlpool, a large central pool and a round, deep (4 m) pool with diving possibilities.
Price from Monday to Friday is 10 Euro for the whole day, and from 3 p.m.. the price is approx. 7 Euro. Saturdays approx. 12 Euro for the whole day, and approx. 9 Euro from afternoon. Half price for children accompanying adults. Open from 9 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. every day to the 30th of September.
