Fun for all the family

12/08/2014

From pizza-making to water parks, these family-friendly shore excursions will appeal to the young – and the young at heart

Nice, France

 

Eco City Tour by Tukxi, Madeira

The open roof and sides allow you to sit back and admire the scenery as you explore narrow, cobbled streets and climb to the Socorro Viewpoint and Santa Caterina Park for fabulous views. After your tour, there’s plenty of time to do more sightseeing independently.

Family Sorrento and Pizza School, Naples

Legend has it that it was on this rocky coastline that sirens attempted to lure Odysseus onto the rocks. And you’ll understand why he might have been tempted as you drink in the towering Mount Vesuvius and dramatic Dolomitic Cliffs on your way to the sleepy town of Sorrento for your pizza-making lesson. Italians are fiercely proud of their pizza and you’ll soon see why when you’re tucking into your own homemade margherita. You’ll never want to eat takeaway again.

Fantasy Island Waterpark, Barcelona

Barcelona might be well known for its tapas and Gaudí architecture, but dragging reluctant kids around the city sights can be something of a chore. They’ll be delighted to swap La Rambla for this exciting water park – and it might bring out the child in even the most avid architecture fan too. Be brave and fling yourself down the rapids and let the kids go wild on the slides.

Snorkel Adventure, Dubrovnik

The idyllic village where this tour begins has retained its tiny-town charm amid Croatia’s growth into one of Europe’s top tourist destinations. South of Dubrovnik, Mlini lies in a sheltered bay famous for its freshwater springs, winding streams and stunning blue waters. Set sail on these waters and take in the unparalleled beauty of the surroundings as you travel to two wonderfully secluded islets, Mrkan and Bobara. Diving into the crystal-clear sea, you’ll be greeted by an array of marine life on their underwater explorations, including parrotfish, octopus and moray eels.

Nice and the Little Train, Cannes

There’s a reason why F Scott Fitzgerald dubbed the French Riviera a playground. Its old-world opulence and year-round sunshine make it an irresistible destination for young and old alike. Nice – Queen and Capital of the Riviera – doesn’t disappoint. On board the Little Train, you can effortlessly explore the town’s narrow streets, flower market and seafront. Known for long lunches and even longer dinners, Nice is a town to relax in – so take a leaf out of the locals’ book and head to the beachfront for a glass of rosé after the journey.
