There are no drawbacks, no age limits: the mountains of Emilia-Romagna are excellent refuges for all lovers of nature, sports and the great outdoors.
Those travelling with young children will find peace of mind because the natural parks and snow-capped peaks of the Apennines are the perfect place to spend a holiday surrounded by unspoilt natural beauty.
Those who opt for the mountains have the opportunity to let their children breathe pure, oxygen-rich air, as well as allowing them to get in touch with the magnificent world of nature.
All the ski resorts in Emilia-Romagna offer a huge range of kid friendly services and amenities: from baby slopes and ski schools with instructors for even the youngest children, to baby parks and ice skating rinks – in the winter, the mountains of Emilia-Romagna become enormous outdoor playgrounds.
From Cimone to Campigna, there are slopes for those who already know how to ski, but also for beginners who are trying this sport for the first time. The local ski schools can help children take their first steps in the snow, while the large baby parks with inflatable toys and bouncy slides, donuts and dinghies are the perfect place to spend a full day of fun with your children.
What if the weather is bad?
You can always go to visit one of the many historic villages in the Apennine (such as Fanano, Tredozio or San Benedetto in Alpe); go to an ice-skating rink, like the ones at Cerreto Laghi or Mount Cimone; throw yourself into the waters of the swimming pools and thermal spas of the resort towns or treat yourself while spending time playing with your children, perhaps in front of the warm fireplace of a hotel.
