Tuscany for Kids: Saltalbero Parco Avventura

Are you traveling in Tuscany with your family? If you are looking for cool things to do with your kids while you are on vacation, you might want to check out Saltalbero Parco Avventura in the province of Siena. It is also a lovely place to relax as it has a nice view of the meadows and woods overlooking the valley of the Ombrone river.

Parco Avventura: an Adventure Park in Tuscany

A couple of days ago, we went to Saltalbero Parco Avventura in Rapolano Terme. It is an adventure park for kids and adults. It is about 19.2 km (a 30-minute bus ride) from Siena, Italy.

An Adventure Park For Pre-schoolers

It was my son’s first field trip in school. I was so excited to be a parent volunteer! In the morning, the children did the Coccinella (ladybug) tour. It is a low course for 3-6-year-olds. It is equipped with four platforms with ramps and steps, a “monkey bridge”, 1-cable walkway, a Tibetan bridge, beams and cableways on the ground. Through climbing, balancing, jumping and swinging, children can develop their gross motor skills. It was so cool to see the children laugh with glee as they climbed on platforms and ladders between the trees.

My son Samuel crosses the hanging bridge with confidence.

The class had lunch in an area above the hill in a covered area with picnic tables. Right next to it is a restaurant/bar for refreshments (although it was closed on the day we visited the park). You can also find clean toilets and a handwashing area for your convenience.

In the afternoon, the children explored the site and engaged in team games. This was a great way to develop their social teamwork skills. They enjoyed playing at the playground with wooden tree houses, a seesaw, swings, and slides.

Lessons Learned:

At first, my son Samuel hesitated to go through the obstacle courses. He said that he was feeling scared and unsure. But with the help and support of his teacher, his friends, (and his mom, of course) he was able to do it! His teacher noticed that my son was wearing Spiderman shoes. So, she told him that he can climb like Spiderman! His classmates cheered him on by saying, “Way to go, Sam!” It was a great experience for my kid and I was so proud of him for overcoming his initial fear of heights.

Tips:

  1. Ensure that your child is wearing outdoor clothing and comfortable shoes.
  2. Bring snacks, a packed lunch, and bottled water. First, eat a light snack for extra energy before tackling the obstacle courses.
  3. Put on sunscreen for sun protection.
  4. Put on bug spray for insect bite prevention.
  5. Supply a sunhat if the day will be hot.
  6. Bring a first aid kit with bandages and antiseptic wipes.
