So, if you’re thinking about a family holiday in Italy, here is our selection of some of the best theme parks, fashion outlets, water parks and zoos in Italy.

Out first suggestion has to be Gardaland near Lake Garda, which is one of Italy’s most popular amusement parks. It has rides and activities to suit all ages, as well as several restaurants and snack bars. It is also home to the Sea Life Aquarium, where you can see sharks close up in their underwater tunnel! The park is separated into adrenaline, fantasy and adventure regions, with rides for young children, such as Prezzemolo Land, and rollercoasters for thrill-seekers, such as the Raptor and Blue Tornado. It certainly won't disappoint and makes a fantastic day out for families with children of all ages.

If you’re planning a holiday near Milan, then we have a few suggestions for you and your family. If you have fashionistas in your family then they will love Milan’s fashion outlets, such as Serraville Designer Outlet, which has over 180 designer stores in one convenient location. If football is more your thing, check out our San Siro Stadium tour, which is the home of AC Milan and FC Internazionale. There is also Acquaworld, which is a large aquatic and wellness centre that was designed and built with the most advanced technology, which is reflected in the futuristic style of the resort. The park is open throughout the year and offers heated swimming pools, numerous water slides, jet pools, child-friendly adventure pools and relaxing water fountains.

Rome also has a variety of family activities that you can enjoy. As well as visiting the Colosseum, Vatican City and the Roman Forum, there are also the Zoological Gardens. Also known as Bioparco SpA (or Giardino Zoologico di Roma in Italian), the zoo spans 42 acres and is home to thousands of animals and hundreds of species. One of the main draws of Rome’s Zoological Gardens is that the animals can be enjoyed without small cages and, instead, you can see big cats, reptiles, elephants, chimps and many other animal species rollicking in large, spacious enclosures that have been optimised for their needs. There are also child-friendly tours and activities, such as the Ghosts and Ghouls tour, family cooking classes the Segway tour.
