Here are the main theme parks in the area:
Italy in miniature – For those who have never had time to visit the whole of Italy, or even just the main places, this is a great opportunity! An amusing walk that starts in the Alps and reaches the farthermost tip of the boot of Italy, through monuments, parks and squares… who would not like to easily reach the Colosseum, starting from the Tower of Pisa? An experience to be enjoyed by youngsters and adults alike.
Mirabilandia – The largest amusement park in Italy, always in the forefront, full of unique and new attractions year after year, and which does not need much introduction.

Fiabilandia – This is the theme park dedicated to children, in which you are surrounded by a fantasy world which seems to have just popped out of a fairy tale world; suffice it to see Merlin’s castle which stands at the park entrance, to leave behind reality and venture into this fantastic fairy world, full of magic and amusing attractions.
Le Navi Aquarium – Built in a former seaside holiday facility, whose structure resembles that of a naval fleet, this is now one of the major tourist destinations in the area.
