Where is the best holiday in Italy with children?
If you are a connoisseur of art, gourmet and simpleLove to have a good rest, then you - in the heart of Tuscany - Florence. Florence is the cradle of the Italian revival. The Middle Ages and the Renaissance, it seems, never left this city.
We should immediately note the fact that Florence is one of the most expensive cities in Italy. This applies to living, and food, and services.
It is clear that for Florentines those beauties, pastWhich they pass every day, is already ordinary. You will admire the richness of Florence every day. Today, like many centuries ago, Florence is the center of art. Here are world-famous galleries and palaces. But first things first.
So, you are in Florence. If you flew by plane, then you will not be able to get to the city center. The airport is very close to all the unearthly beauties of the city. If you want to save a bit on a taxi, then use the pulmane - a convenient bus, the ticket for which is 5 euros. Within 15 minutes you will be at the train station of Florence. And from there it is within easy reach of your hotel. Agree, when you travel with children, it is very important that the road does not take much time. You can ask for a map of the city at the station and try to find your hotel yourself or take a taxi. The town is not very big, so the bill for the taxi is quite acceptable.
Near the station is the Florence Cathedral. In Italian it sounds no other way than the Duomo. The entrance to the Cathedral is free, but it is advisable that you do not have a miniskirt and bare shoulders. You can also buy a ticket in the cathedral for 8 euros to climb the stairs to the dome. From there you will see Florence in all its splendor.
There is in Florence and another tower - the square Michelangelo. From there you will see the Ponte Vecchio, the cathedral, the old palace.
Of course, Ponte Vecchio is one of the mostVisited tourist places. In translation from the Italian Ponte Vecchio means the old bridge. On it are the most expensive jewelry stores, so it has been for centuries. It seems to me that on Ponte Vecchio it is better to look from afar. Walking along it, it seems that the bridge is not so splendid and pompous.
And here you walk around Florence, but it's hot incredibly,And you want something to eat or at least a snack. Advice: never choose a cafe, restaurant, located in the central streets. They, as shown by the experience of many tourists, are not so good. All the best is hidden in the secondary streets. You and your children will just be crazy about Italian cuisine. Finally, you will try Italian pizza, the variety of which amazes the imagination of tourists from all over the world.
Even if you do not like sweet things, then you will fall in love withItalian ice cream. Especially your children. It is truly amazing. There is a feeling that it consists entirely of fruits. After resting, you can continue to walk around the medieval city. Each street of Florence is the keeper of the history of this city. On the facades of many houses you can see the image of the Madonna - icons on the streets are more likely a rule than an exception.
Tired of going to paid museums, you think thatSpending money on this is not entirely reasonable? Announcement for all greed: at least this summer, the entrance to the Academy Gallery, to the very place where the naked David is, free every Thursday from 7 to 10 pm. Every second woman, who saw David for the first time, begins to cry. A sexy, ideal and strong man will always remain in this museum, he can no longer be dressed in a chic suit and boast before his girlfriends ... Only Italian ice cream will be able to cheer up ...
By the way, another David is standing on the Piazza della Signoria, but as you know, he's not real.
Not far from this square is the Uffizi Gallery. If you did not visit it, then you missed a lot. The works of famous Italian artists of the Renaissance, but that only says one name - Botticelli. Keep in mind that the ticket must be booked in advance. For citizens of Russia (as in principle and for all others who are not citizens of the European Union), the ticket costs 14 euros. You will not regret.
In Florence, really very muchSights, you can not even see everything while you are in the city, but the feeling of beauty will remain with you for a long time. Do you want to go to the sea? From it to Florence, too, not far away. It is enough to smoke at the railway station ticket and choose a direction to your liking: Viareggio or Pisa. Such a holiday with children in Italy will be remembered for a long time.
