Condé Nast Traveler Family Travel Expert Panel: Transportation Tips

It’s amazing how many families choose not to travel because they fear getting there and back will be a nightmare. Believe me, I get it. When our son was a toddler he never slept on planes, irrespective of the length of the ride. These flights were exhausting as there were never moments of downtime.

  • My husband and I are going to Italy and Spain in December with our two daughters (age 15, and 7). We plan on 10 days in Italy. 4 nights will be in Rome, 2 nights in Florence and the rest in Venice. We are wondering what is the best transportation to take within Italy. We all will have a suitcase each and a backpack.

    • Sorry Jacqueline, I missed this! Since you are staying in all cities, the train is the best option for getting around the country. There are fast options between the large cities. Have fun! -Amie

Coronavirus Update

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.
