fun things to do with kids in campania  italy   Travel for Kids


If your kids like volcanoes, southern Italy is the place to be. Along with Mt. Vesuvius, there are bubbling volcanic craters and mysterious grottos, and islands formed by volcano's. Boat trips to Ischia or Capri is fun for everyone in the family. At Pompeii, Herculaneum and Oplontis, kids can travel back in time to see amazingly preserved life in ancient Roman cities and villas.
    Buried Cities - Pompeii, Herculaneum
    Island of Ischia Take a scenic boat trip to Ischia, the largest of the islands in the Bay of Naples. Spend the day relaxing on the long sandy beaches (Maronti is the longest), or in the thermal springs. Visit the dramatic Castello d'Ischia, a 14th century castle in the Spanish style, perched on a rocky promontory overlooking the sea.
    Capri – It's a close hop from Sorrento or Naples over to the island of Capri. From the Marina Grande, you can take a boat to Blue Grotto, or ride the funicular (tramway) up to the town of Capri. Walk out of town for great views or take the local bus between Marina Grande, Capri and Anacapri.
  Visit the Emerald Grotto (Grotto dello Smeraldo), take an elevator down to the cavern and boat ride through the green waters.
    Paestum – Paestum is a little bit of ancient Greece in Italy. Poseidonia was founded by the Greeks in the 6th century BC, later the Romans called it Paestum. Today Paestum has three lovely Doric temples with fat cigar-shaped columns to run around and lots of open space. Take a picnic. Paestum is also a beach resort – so spend some time relaxing at the seaside.
