Traveling with children is always very nice, but sometimes it can be hard to find activities to live with them, appropriate to their age and perfect for their enjoyment. Today I write a post helpful for parents who are looking for things to do with their children on Lake Como, creating a list of what I think are 10 of the most beautiful activities for you and your family.
1.Chicco village and Museum of toy horse in Grandate
When you are traveling with children you always you should always remember to bring along a lot of essential things, but every time you forget something. It is important to have a reference point where to buy everything you need for your little one. In Grandete, just 15 km from Moltrasio you could find the Chicco Village, a huge store entirely dedicated to children, with attached playground for children up to 8 years and with the “Garden of Wonders”. Also in Grandate you can make a jump to the only museum in the world dedicated to Toy Horse. This museum is really a dream, both for children and parents!
Como is right on the border with Switzerland: why not take the opportunity to know it better? Bring your children to Swissminiatur in Melide.
