Bologna isn’t on many lists of top places to vacation in Italy. But families who do choose to come are glad they did, as they discover a place full of charm, grit and authentic Italian character untouched by mass tourism (not to mention some of the best gelato in the world). This is a city where it makes sense to invest in a kid-friendly guide who can help your family learn all about the interesting history, instead of aimlessly wandering the streets and alleys. Bologna also has a nice selection of kid-friendly hotels and accommodations, including apartment-style properties that work well for families.
