    Hi, I agree the restaurants apart from breakfast are formal and lack buzzy atmosphere that kids like. there are so many good places to find in the town, you will want to wander out each night/lunch.

    Pool water is freezing! Though hotel said it was 26 degrees but it didn't feel like it. In fairness this is a trend through Italy.
