Italy for Teens

Italy is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, and it’s clear why. It’s packed with charming cities full of history and culture, world-famous art and fashion, stunning landscapes from the Amalfi Coast to the rolling hills of Tuscany and perhaps most beloved, spectacular food. Each diverse region offers something new and exciting to explore, and we know the best places to go with teens no matter their interest.

Italy for Teens

Seriously Special

Exploring Italy’s history is not to be missed, textbooks will come to life for your teens here. In Rome, step back into an era of gladiators and discover the haunting tunnels and arena of the Colosseum, then, venture to landmarks like the Spanish Steps, the iconic Trevi Fountain and the beautiful Borghese Gardens. Visit the mysterious and tragic town of ancient Pompeii to uncover houses, temples, frescoes and mosaics preserved by layers of volcanic ash, or gain insight into the fascinating past and present of the Vatican, a city steeped in religious history. You may even catch a peek of the Pope.

One-of-a-kind experiences

Food is a highlight of any trip to Italy. It's no surprise that the world's first food theme park opened here. Your family can discover the traditional art of gelato making in Florence, explore Naples’ history through pizza baking in the city of its creation, or learn to cook like an ancient Roman with a culinary course that uses a recipe book from the past. You’ll have the unique chance to whip up a variety of dishes that were popular with emperors thousands of years ago, using traditional ingredients and techniques from the period.

If visiting during the fall, your family must experience the wine or olive oil harvest. This is one of the best times of year to visit Tuscany and every member of the family will love taking part in this magical, hands-on, annual event. Learn the process of wine or olive oil making from first pick to production, followed by the most fun part, tasting the fruits of your labor. Mangia!

If your family wants to delve into the outdoors and take in natural splendors while on holiday, Italy offers many options. Most resorts have tennis, golf, and complimentary bikes on offer. Take a kayak on the Rivera to discover an 18th century Liguria mill, paddle to Portofino for its impressive lighthouse, or visit Sardinia for sailing courses available for every skill level.

If your family are more land than sea types, head to the Dolomites. Aside from fabulous, powder-filled skiing in the winter, this alpine region is fantastic for outdoor recreation during the summer. In Val Gardena, hike, bike, climb and explore the beautiful landscape through geocaching. This modern-day treasure hunt will please every teen.

And for an even more thrilling adventure, visit the Adventure Park in Alta Badia for a tree-top quest featuring a series of routes depending on ability. This larch forest has 600 meters of ropes courses with 71 platforms up to 19 meters high! Teens won’t be able to resist this high-flying, action-packed journey.
