Florence Christmas for kids
Dreoni is an amazing toy shop. Open since 1923 is a must see for adults as well, as the quality of niche products, of wooden toys, toy soldiers, railway modeling stuff is amazing, and wisely blended with the most popular toys and games.
The Firenze Winter Park will give your kids the opportunity to enjoy snow-tubing and ice-skating a stone’s throw from the Arno’s banks. The Museo di Storia Naturale – Museum of Natural History – will host a series of special events and exhibitions on very christmassy topics, such as reindeer, the Christmas tree, the experience of polar cold and the concept of travel.
Unmissable for the little ones, the carousels: you can usually find them in Piazza della Repubblica.
