Italy is and has always been our No. 1 most requested destination at Ciao Bambino, and for good reason! Not only do Italians adore children of all ages, the country is stuffed with more ancient ruins, glorious landscapes and cultural masterpieces than you could experience in several decades’ worth of travel (and that’s not even counting the food). It’s this wealth of choice that can make planning a family vacation here feel daunting … with so many possibilities, how can you figure out the best places to go in Italy and distill them into a week or even two?
Meet Laurel Perry, an Italy expert and Ciao Bambino Family Vacation Advisor who works with families to solve exactly this dilemma. Laurel, who lives in Tuscany for four months out of each year, knows Italy from corner to corner and creates incredible custom itineraries that represent the trip of a lifetime for many of her clients. She went live on our Facebook page to offer a few tips — here’s just a glimpse of the wisdom she shares in the video above:
- Why you shouldn’t visit Florence without a family-friendly guide
- Her best strategy for avoiding crowds at the Vatican
- Where to head for beautiful beaches (including a couple you’ve never heard of)
- What kids like most about exploring Venice
- Under-the-radar Tuscan towns and activities that parents and kids will love
It’s not often you get access to such amazing family travel advice from an insider. Don’t pass up the chance!
