Pisa beaches experience strong currents and thanks to Mother Nature, Marina di Pisa is protected and guarded by tracts of large rock walls.

The friendliness of Tuscany beaches largely depends on the age of the kids. Calm and sandy beaches with minimal waves are great for small infants and toddlers. Older kids would love to explore the rocks and pools trying to figure out the mysteries of nature. It would be appropriate to visit almost the entire coast provided the weather is right. Versilia and Maremma beaches are sandy and are great for toddlers. The Etruscan coast, on the other hand, is great for older kids, including Val di Cornia’s Baratti and Sterpaia area, which are more protected from winds and the waves tend to be calmer.

Apart from the beach life, you can encounter other varied events and places during your Tuscany trip. From breathtaking panoramas to excellent wine and cuisine, the Tuscany region in Italy is a complete tour package.
