Pisa is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy and there are many things for people to see and do during a visit. However, it is often a family that is avoided by families as they are worried that the attractions in this city are more suitable for adults who are interested in history, culture, and architecture. While it is an amazing city to visit for those with these interests, it is a mistake to miss out on visiting this location simply because you have children. There are activities that are suitable for visitors of all ages so you can keep your children entertained throughout your stay. Here are some of the top family activities to enjoy while visiting Pisa.
1. Leaning Tower of Pisa
This attraction is fascinating regardless of your age. Children who visit this landmark are in awe of the unusual structure and love exploring the grounds surrounding the Leaning Tower of Pisa. A trip here is also a fantastic family photo opportunity.
2. Take a Boat Trip
Running through Pisa is the River Arno, and this is another setting where you will find activities suitable for families. Boat trips and tours run throughout the day all year-round and most children enjoy a boat ride. It is also a wonderful way to view the sights of the city from a different perspective.
3. Enjoy the Outdoor Spaces
Children often enjoy the simplest of activities and just want to let off steam. There are some beautiful spots in Pisa where they can do this to their heart’s content. One of the best outdoor spaces is the Natural Park Migliarino San Rossore.
4. Visit the Museums
While many of the museums are geared more towards adults who enjoy art and history, there are many museums in this city that are also fun for children. Some of the best museums for children include the Museum of the Anatomy Institute, and the Natural History Museum of the University of Pisa.
5. Visit the Beach
If you are willing to take a short trip out of the main city, you can spend the day at the beach in the warmer months. Children love having the space to run around and both kids and adults alike enjoy paddling along the coast in the clear blue waters. Some of the best places are the beaches of Marina di Vecchiano and Marina di Pisa.
