The basics

Italy’s iconic sights may be magnificent, but seeing the Colosseum, Leaning Tower, and St. Peter’s Basilica in miniature is a unique delight for kids of all ages. Italia in Miniatura has been a popular amusement park for decades, and booking tickets in advance is a must to skip the long lines at the entrance and head directly to the 273 models surrounded by landscaping featuring tiny trees and plants. In addition to the miniatures, crowd-pleasers include a boat tour down a mini-Grand Canal, getting a “driver’s license” at the park’s driving school for tots, cooling off at the water ride and cannons, tree-top rope-climbing course, a parrot sanctuary, and a 7D cinema.
