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.
One of my favorite Italian spaghetti recipes. I make this dish and I'm once again in Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast. I can feel that gentle breeze in the air, a breeze fragrant with the scent of the sea…
