Why do we recommend to spend a weekend with your family in Pistoia? Because Pistoia offers many interesting activities both for adults and kids and you have the chance to discover places full of history and fun.


In the centre of Pistoia there are many activities you can do with your children, here you find some ideas:

  • Pistoia’s Zoological Garden, a park with more than 400 animals that covers a surface of 17 acres. This park is one of the most important ones in Italy because of its size, its educational activities and the preservation of the different animal species. (discount on entry tickets)
  • The Flying Garden, a unique playground where kids play around and with works of art (free entry)
  • The underground path “Pistoia Sotterranea” to discover the mysterious undergrounds of the city (discount on entry tickets)
  • Marino Marini Museum, families can find in this museum a special area just for kids and occasionally the staff organizes animated visits and laboratories.
  • If you are visiting the city on August 24th you cannot miss Saint Bartholomew’s city festival dedicated to children, while for the feast of the Epiphany on January 6th all children will be enchanted by the descent of the old lady called “Befana” who is coming down from the bell tower in the dome square to give all children treats and presents.
