From our experience bringing children is fine. There were children there when we did the tour. The majority of the time is spent outside on their beautiful property. I highly recommend.

Can you get to Villa Calicantus on an organised trip from Bardolino or using public transport ? We will not have a car and have someone in the party not be able to walk too far.

Thank you that looks a very nice tour, the other option would be a taxi up to Villa Calicantus. If only about 3 miles it may not be too costly.So many lovely places, can't wait !
