It is always difficult to keep kids happy all the time on vacation. Sometimes you will have to drag them along to museums and other activities more suitable for adults, but there are many things to do on your Sicilian vacation that the whole family will enjoy.
If you are going to visit Sicily with kids, here is a quick guide of a few things to do that will keep the kids happy and the parents sane!
Water Parks: Fresh & Fun with your Kids!
Apart from the ocean there are many other water activities in Sicily. There are some great water parks around the island:
Etnaland Water Park: Located in Catania, this park is not just an ordinary water park, but it is also dinosaur-themed! Other than the rides, the park has a cableway and laser shows.
Monreale Water Park: The largest in Sicily whith incredible slides, a lagoon and great restaurants and bars. This water park is located in Palermo and is a great way to cool off during the hot summer months
Trapani: Featuring a few water parks, Trapani is definitely a must-see when travelling with kids. Two of the best water parks in Trapani are Acquasplash and Iceland.
Adventure Parks in Sicily
Another option if you are traveling with kids is to take them to an adventure park where they can climb on rope courses or scale trees. The best is the Madonie adventure park in Sicily, which is located in the beautiful Madonie mountain range. The park is a great way for children to expel some pent up energy as well as visit some of the working farms in the area for an educational experience. The parents will love the local cuisine which is famous for its meats, cheeses and most importantly wine!
