Are you looking for the ideal seaside resort for you and your children? In addition to “blue” beaches, you can now also opt for “green” ones: that is to say, beaches which have been awarded the special “Green Flag” status by Italian paediatricians! There are 83 of them in Italy, covering the whole country from north to south. These are beaches considered suitable for children because they fulfil a series of basic requirements.
Every year from 2008 onwards, more than 900 Italian paediatricians belonging to SIPPS (the Italian Society of Preventive and Social Paediatrics) have assessed which beaches are best for families with children under 18 on the basis of environmental suitability.
What are the criteria?
For you who live of breads and snowboard, come on vacation at a hotel in Piedmont, you will find something to sink your teeth into! Because the region has as many as 8 snow parks, where abandon yourself to the thrill of spectacular evolutions defying gravity and always in complete safety.
Among the most exciting snow parks, there is the new Limone Snow Park that for the lovers of freestyle and mountain means they can indulge in rails, jumps for expert and less experienced.
For a winter holiday in the mountains with your family, we recommend the Alta Valtellina, in particular Bormio. In addition to being a beautiful resort surrounded by nature of the Stelvio National Park, is famous for its ski resort that is open from November to April. It is no coincidence that on the slope of Stelvio are held downhill races of the World Cup.
The ski areas of Bormio also is among the best equipped for adults and children. This boasts 15 ski lifts and 20 slopes with trails ranging from a minimum altitude of 1225 meters, up to an altitude of over 3000 meters of the Cima Bianca.
