  • Hotels with Kids' Clubs
  • The former monastery with gorgeous hill-top views of Florence feels a world away from the bustling city yet a complimentary shuttle transports guests to the main tourist area in 15 minutes. Although this is a luxury, old-world property, there are many fantastic onsite amenities for children including a cooking school (6 to 14 years old), painting lessons, a heated open-air swimming pool, huge gardens, and a children’s menu. The kids’ concierge can suggest kid-friendly activities like scavenger hunts and chocolate factory visits around the area. Rooms are traditionally decorated and have city and garden views. The staff is extremely attentive and willing to assist with every need.
