Agriturismo with 2 kids 3 days
Hi, as part of our Italy trip, I would like to plan 3 nights at a farmhouse (preferably a working farm) with some animals and some ambience of a true farm (as opposed to a resort). Kids are 11 and 4, generally are happy with nature, exploring, climbing, among animals. We are pressed for time, hence trying to get some Florence in with this, idea being we stay at the farmhouse, make a couple of day trips to Florence and keep one day to enjoy the farm and surroundings. Can you help with devising an itinerary that will work for this. We will arrive into Florence from Rome via train and then will leave Florence for Venice again via train. I expect, we will need to rent a car in Florence. Any recommendations on where to stay to make this work? Getting to Florence from the farmhouse should not be time consuming. Thanks for any suggestions!

Where to stay with kids
Check out this article about Family friendly places... especially option number one which has a petting zoo with farm animals
or you could look at this "fattoria" which means farm in Italian
