If Italy’s Lakes region sounds appealing, yet you seek something a bit less glitzy and more serene, consider a vacation to Ascona. Located just north of the Swiss/Italian border, Ascona allows families to experience lazy days relaxing in the beautiful surroundings without a lot of fuss. The kid-friendly fun includes excursions to see the castles of Bellinzona, swimming in Lake Maggiore, a day cruise to Italy, visiting the various artists’ colonies and dinners full of the best Swiss food. We suggest families book accommodations that mirror the laid-back vibe for which Ascona is known, like a kid-friendly resort with beautiful grounds full of play spaces and pools that children can enjoy for days on end.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
Our offices are closed for the holiday. We will respond to your request on Monday, November 28th. If you are a Ciao Bambino client experiencing an emergency while traveling, please leave a voicemail on
