How to Spend 2 Days in Florence with Kids

where to stay in Florence, Italy

While there are tons of great kid-friendly hotels in Florence, we opted to stay at Hotel La Scaletta. Our room was amazing! It was huge and there was a king bed on one side of the partition and then two twin beds on the other side.


Family Friendly Florence City Tour

We booked a tour with a local expert who could point out things that might interest them. My kids learned a lot about Florence from this tour!


Da Vinci’s Workshop

We toured around Da Vinci Interactive Museum for a hands-on workshop for our family. There are tons of replicas of Da Vinci’s creations that are ready for people to test out.


Fontana del Porcellino (Boar’s Fountain)

Our tour guide also showed us the Fontana del Porcellino. It’s a huge bronze boar and legend has it that if you rub its nose and feed it a coin, you will get good luck.


Golf Cart Tour of Florence

We hopped into our electric golf cart and our guide drove us around some top Florence sights before taking us out of the city for a scenic drive.


treasure hunt tour at the uffizi gallery

We spent about 90 minutes walking around specific rooms to see if we could spot certain scenes from paintings.


Small Group Accademia Gallery Tour

I booked a small group tour of the Accademia Gallery specifically so my kids could see the Statue of David.
