Don’t be surprised if your kids love the towns of Umbria in Italy so much that you might have to bribe them with candies to get them out of this idyllic region.

Fondly called as the green heart, Umbria has greenery painted all over it. Adding to this, you have the waterfalls, lakes and some quirky collections of Mummy which the older kids would enjoy for sure. Didn’t see that coming, did you?

3. Bomarzo Monster Park
A “Villa Of Wonders” with fascinating sculptures. That’s Bomarzo Monster Park in Northern Lazio for you ladies and gentlemen! Our Prince Vicino got this bizarre yet a fun-filled park done to mourn the death of his beloved Giulia Farnese. This park is near the Umbria region; North of Rome to be precise. The famous sculptures would be those of the tilted house set-up, war elephant and a huge fish head. Make sure you visit this park via the ‘Mouth Of Hell’, a giant screaming mouth which looks like a certain something wanting to gobble you up for dinner. Frightened yet? Well don’t be, the so-called tongue of this monster face also has a picnic table set-up where lunching can be done with your family.
