William is my son and although very young he has helped me a great
deal with this site. His advice has been particularly useful in getting
a child's view on Italy and helping to find things for children to do
William has been involved everywhere. His influence has been enormous.
He has taken a number of the photos on this site and many of the photos
on my husband's site about
Piedmont and Sardinia
I asked him to pick out three things he really loves doing best in Italy:
First on his list was Gardaland and the nearby Aqua Park. If you have kids then you have to find a way to include this area... they'll love it. We normally stay in Peschiera del Garda which is a great place for adults too.
This page then is dedicated to William and it features
photos of a child's 24 hours in Italy starting with breakfast. Also
included is a video in which he describes the things he loves about
Italy and finishes of a jar of Nutella.
I hope you enjoy it and please excuse this mother's indulgence!
Dinner at a trattoria on the beach and William still full of energy making silly faces.
It was getting late - after a long dinner we went for a stroll through
the old town of Santo Stefano al Mare and William, although half asleep,
wanted a gelato (ice cream). Most of it ended up on his face!!
The next day, after a morning trailing around behind me while I
shopped, William had just about had enough. This wall was about all
that kept him standing.
After lunch, and a short nap, the afternoon was spent playing soccer with Matteo which always makes William happy.
Padua Italy, known as Padova in Italian, has to be one of the loveliest of all Italian cities. There is so much to see and do here and it is a city that so many fall hopelessly in love with... I certainly did.
I hear from so many people frustrated about not being able to return to Italy. I feel for them. I know it is tough. It is tough for us too. Our main source of income was hotel bookings and advertising…
