Special for kids
One thing you'll notice when you get to Italy, is that children are loved. Even the smallest village will have a fantastic playground, restaurants will generally have high chairs and sometimes even a basket of toys, and no-one will frown upon you if your children get a bit active. Quite the opposite...
Arma di Taggia has a great pizzeria on the beach, El Lido, with great games: slides, swings, and even a trampoline.
