Lively Lake Garda

Lake Garda holidays offer the epitome of luxury family holidays in Italy. As the largest of the Italian lakes, there are a host of activities for the whole family in and around this majestic lake. Situated just west of Verona, Lake Garda is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery, including colossal castles, dramatic peaks, and sensational sunsets. 

Your luxury Lake Garda holiday is bound to be full of excitement and wonder. The lake offers a range of exciting activities, including swimming, lounging at the surrounding beaches, or getting the adrenaline pumping with the water sports on offer. Plus, there are boat trips, giving you a chance to explore the various towns, including Limone, Malcesine, and Sirmione, to name a few. 

For the history buffs in the family, Lake Garda holidays offer some of the most sensational historic sites in Italy. Medieval castles are at the top of the list, offering a step back in time to see how the other half lived.

Soaring Sicily

If you’re looking for a family beach holiday, look no further than sensational Sicily. Stunning beaches with soft sands and clear shallow Mediterranean water await. Spend your days lounging in the sunshine while the little ones build sandcastles to their heart's content, or hit the water with fantastic watersports. 

Adventure lovers in the family will love a trip to the mammoth Mount Etna, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Whether you want to hike or take the whole family on a 4x4 extravaganza, Mount Etna is an absolute must while on holiday in Sicily

Just north of Mount Etna, the Alcantara Gorges are waiting to be explored. Carved out of basalt rock by volcanic activity, the rock pools and waterfalls are simply incredible. If being surrounded by sky high gorges sounds good, a trip to Gorge Beach is in order. Swimming here is amazing, but can be pretty chilly, so best for summer holidays in Sicily. 

History class is in session, with the town of Taormina offering some of the best sites to explore days gone by. The Greek-Roman Theatre is an absolute must, inviting families to discover the historic ruins of one of the town's most popular sites. Overlooking the stunning sea, everyone in the family will enjoy the amphitheatre, which still hosts shows, 2,000 years after it was originally built. 

Villa Sant'Andrea, A Belmond Hotel, Taormina Mare offers the ideal accommodation for family holidays in Sicily. Situated a few minutes from the town of Taormina, you have access to some of the best local restaurants and days of exploring the charming streets. The private beach at this historic hotel is a winner for families, along with the onsite swimming pool for all your summer day sensations. The Smile Club invites younger guests to enjoy a range of fun activities throughout the day, while parents and grandparents enjoy the luxury spa treatments.
