Planning a holiday for the whole family is sometimes a challenge: somebody dreams about relax and free time after a busy working year (usually these are the parents), children instead are always in search of inspiring – and sometimes dangerous – activities.
Whatever you are in search of, the Maremma offers you the suitable solution. Free or equipped beaches are available on the whole tuscan coast, together with rocky shoreline where you can dive or snorkle.
Many activities are available to make a lively holiday with your kids.
We suggest you to visit the Tarot Garden in Capalbio, a magical place with 22 monumental sculptures by Niki de Saint Phalle: thery are representing her idea of the greater Mysteries of the tarot, constructed of reinforced concrete and covered with mirrors and ceramic mosaic. The figures can be walked through. Children and adults will be fascinated by the explosion of colours.
For more fun and adventure don’t give up going to the amusement park “CavallinoMatto” in Livorno. It is the great amusement park of Tuscany, located just 500 meters from the seaside, in Marina di Castagneto Carducci, right on the famous Costa degli Etruschi. It is the only theme park in Italy located practically by the seaside. It’s quite common to see water parks along the coast, but proper theme parks are not so easy to find. That’s why CavallinoMatto is one of a kind!
Are you ready now to live an incredible experience in contact with the nature? If yes don’t forget to visit the adventure park “Il tasso scatenato” in Follonica. Here you’ll find the breeze coming from the sea and the shade of the trees on which instructors will teach you to “walk” in total security.
Please remember that you’re in the Gulf of Follonica, just few steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches of Maremma: Cala Violina. Don’t miss the chance to visit it!
With its natural parks, numerous hills, with its pristine beaches and endless campaigns, the Maremma is a paradise to discover also on horseback. There are many riding schools which offer unique opportunities for exploring the most beautiful beaches of its territory.
Do you have an explorer soul? Discover the old iron mines in San Sivestro, an unique examples of the mining and metallurgical cycle, from the Etruscan era to the present day.
Equipped with helmets and coloured waterproofs it is possible to walk inside the Miniera del Temperino mine, an evocative 360 metre tunnel where visitors can discover a broad range of rocks and minerals and the traces of the work of the miners.
Aboard the mining train you can cross the Lanzi-Temperino tunnel where the shapes and colours of the minerals will take the visitors on a discovery of an extraordinary underground world.
At the end of the ride you will reach the Lanzi Valley and the begining of the uphill trail that leads to the striking Rocca di San Silvestro.
But at the end of such intense days, relaxing evenings in your villa with swimming-pool surrounded by the green hills will be surely welcome by every member of the family!
