Zoom in Tuscany

Your family in Italy

Bespoke Touring, Activities, and Lessons

Canadian Island is not a tour operator or travel agency. Canadian Island is a resource centre for travelling families who are new to our favorite city. Thanks to our 20 years of experience, we have the inside knowledge on the best places to stay, restaurants to eat out at, and venues to visit with your kids.

Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and a destination point for many families travelling in Europe. And while there is no limit to the things to see and do in this Tuscan hotspot, getting from A to B can be a little tricky. Within the world of Canadian Island we provide the possibility for parents to leave their children with well-trained, capable English speaking educators. We offer summer camps/ Me and Mom (during June and July), short term child care, evening babysitting, cooking classes, art classes and kid friendly museum visits.

Why choose us?

The answer is simple: we have the skills and know-how that only a local education centre can have. We work to understand your needs, and are here to help.

We do not like mass tourism; we believe that each individual experience is key in building a sense of comfort and the feeling of home in a foreign city.
