We're off to Florence next week (4th Jan 2012) with our three kids - 7, 11, 15.
Can anyone tell me how geared up the museums and art galleries are to kids? What can we expect? Are there appropriate audio guides, kids trails etc in English? The private guides appear really expensive (for a family of five) but maybe someone has expererience of a good kid friendly company. My recollection is that the Italians used not to be very good at presentation generally in museums and at historical sites etc. It's been some years since i was in Italy, has this changed?
We are staying in an appartment on Santa Croce - so any good and reasonable eating options also reccommended.
All advice gratefully received.
