2. Milan, Italy

Head to Bergamo from Milan for an eventful day at the Leolandia Theme Park

R Rosanna

Milan is beautiful, this time I went to a theme park with my daughters outside Milan towards Bergamo called Leolandia, a fantastic family day out because in one part of the park there is a reproduction of Italy in miniatures where you can see the main monuments and places of interest. It is really well-made and I managed to keep my little ones engaged for a big part of the walk! We loved the food even at the theme park, nice and fresh and full of healthy options!   Read more

Orlando is a great place to visit. There is plenty to do. Especially for families with kids, Orlando is their playground. We visited Disney World (which is a must), Universal, Sea Life aquarium, Fun Spot America and the outlet mall. There is plenty to do and you won't run out of choices.
