Events for families around Italy in August

August – a (very!) hot month during which shops and businesses close for holidays and our city centres suddenly become empty. Between who has already gone on vacation and who is not going to at all, many families are wondering how to spend their free time, especially at weekends. Luckily, this year we still have a long list of events to attendsafely – together with our kids.
Here you will find a selection of some of the most interesting activities going on around Italy:


Piazza Chanoux


In Aosta’s historical centre – a completely free event will take place, with many Far West-themed games. You will feel like travelling to another world, surrounded by cowboys and gunmen, cactuses and totems. In addition to classic games, you can sign up for one of the many tournaments organized – darts, videogames, Carcassonne, Dungeons & Dragons and all kinds of investigative games. Also, save this date: on 8 August (at 7 pm), there will be a massive treasure hunt with different teams and lots of different challenges.
