Especially For Families with Kids, But for Everyone

Having lived and traveled in Italy for many years, we understand the unique challenges of traveling with children. We know that you want to spend some time together doing things that interest everyone. We also understand the need for adult time to participate in workshops and classes or just relax in the village.  With that in mind, we have developed a list of activities you may consider. While you are in Monte Castello, we can arrange group activities for kids including:

Soccer Tutorial

Kids Art Classes

Todi Pool and Water Slide

A Kids Castle Discovery Hike
