Families who embrace the unexpected will adore Croatia. From the Italian influence in the northern region of Istria and the pebbly beaches on the Dalmatian Coast to the charm of Dubrovnik, there’s something to please everyone. Croatia has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best kid-friendly countries for European families seeking sunshine and relaxation, and children will enjoy all the tourist-centered infrastructure. Picture full-service resorts that overlook sparkling blue water and offer age-appropriate activities, paired with a culture that embraces all the mess and noise that children bring along. It’s a recipe for a great vacation.

"We had a wonderful time on our Mediterranean cruise and really enjoyed the time in Barcelona afterwards that our advisor helped us arrange. We were incredibly pleased with her during the booking process and with her recommendation on an excursion in Rome."

–Phillips Family Mediterranean Cruise

"We just returned home and we are all still feeling the glow of the wonderful 2 weeks. Everything went smoothly and the itinerary was well thought out and worked well for our group. I know a lot of thought went into planning it."

–Heckman Family Trip

"I couldn't be happier with my experience. Just talking with Cary gave me a baseline foundation to build on - one that I didn't have time to get from reading a guidebook and distilling it. I am not sure how I would have gotten this trip together without her help. I will definitely get in touch before our next trip!"

–Marks Family Trip

"Katie went above & beyond for our family. We had a spectacular trip. I appreciate how Katie understood our needs as a family and gave me realistic feedback. The places where we stayed were exactly what I was looking for. I valued Katie’s patience with me as I was building my trip and deciding what exactly we were looking for as a family. She was available for input whenever needed and I would definitely use her and Ciao Bambino again."

–Roberts Family Trip

"I think we have put together a fabulous trip and I feel it is well balanced both for children and adults! I could never have had a better trip without your help. So thank you, Linda & Brendan."
