In peak summer vacation season, travelers flock to the Italian Riviera for its dramatic rocky coastline and relaxing beach clubs. To make this region kid-friendly, some of the best approaches include visiting Cinque Terre as a day trip instead of using it as a base, seeking out towns with a bit more grassy areas for play and investigating the locations of sandy beaches in advance. We also love booking clients at some of our favorite full-service, kid-friendly hotels in the Italian Riviera, which offer resort-style amenities and great pools to please everyone.

"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."
