The Costa Brava is a popular region in Spain for a family vacation, starting north of Barcelona and stretching up to the French border. The stunning coastline is the draw here and has inspired some of the world’s best artists, like Dali and Picasso. Children enjoy the kid-friendly museums devoted to these artists, paired with an e-bike ride to take in the beautiful countryside that features prominently in their famous paintings. Slow the pace by wandering through fishing villages or playing on the rocky shores. Plan to stay for at least four or five nights to savor the Costa Brava culture properly, and consider renting a kid-friendly farmhouse for an intimate, very local accommodation experience.

Our Happy Travelers
"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

"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

"I will always remember Ciao Bambino. Our advisor was wonderful to work with. I would recommend Ciao Bambino in a blink to others."

–Frus Family Trip

"We are 120% happy with our vacation and the kids are comparing it to our Bali vacation which has been our benchmark!"

–Schmidt 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."
