When travelers think of visiting Italy, the big cities like Florence, Venice, and Rome are the first thoughts. But the boot-shaped country is practically surrounded by water with stretches of picturesque seaside villages overlooking the Mediterranean, Ionian, and the Adriatic Seas.   In the northwest, the Italian Riviera is one of the most scenic coastlines, offering breathtaking views, terraced cliffs, and vibrant colored houses. One of the most stunning of the Riviera is Cinque Terre, which means “Five Lands” in Italian.   View of Riomaggiore from the water- credit Raul Taciu ..read more

12 Delicious Family-Friendly Restaurants in Rome Italy
Ciao Bambino!
by Tamara Gruber
1w ago
One of the great things about taking a family vacation to Rome is the food. Most kids love pasta, pizza, and gelato, and most restaurants are welcoming to children, so there is no need to stress about finding a restaurant with kid-friendly food.   Yet sometimes finding good, authentic Roman cuisine around the most popular tourist attractions can be a challenge.  Ask any tour guide in Italy where to find good food and they will tell you to walk three blocks and then pick any place that doesn’t have a menu in multiple languages out front. But sometimes, you want a bit more specificity ..read more

Our 6 Favorite Things To Do in Siena Italy with Kids
Ciao Bambino!
by Rebecca Winke

Siena is — in its “a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll” way — the perfect Tuscany town to visit with kids. Its historic center (much of it pedestrian only) is big enough to offer a mix of bustling shop-lined thoroughfares and picturesque medieval side streets to explore, yet small enough to be easily visited on foot in a day, even with kids in tow.   With wide-open, car-free spaces where younger travelers can blow off a bit of steam, fabulous artwork to satisfy their more staid older siblings, and a yearly historic festival with enough pomp and revelry to satisfy everyone ..read more

Exploring the Dolomites in Italy: An Active Family’s Dream
Ciao Bambino!

I have a friend who, every August, takes her family to the Dolomites in northern Italy. Having grown up outside Venice, this mountain range and its surrounding region were her playground during holidays. Although she has lived in Newport, California, for decades, her own children have been afforded the chance to spend their summers exploring the Dolomites. They’re accompanied by any of her friends, who are always welcome to come and spend all or a portion of August with them. There is nothing better than traveling with a local who knows the ins and outs, so when I had the opportunity to spend ..read more

Essential Tips for Taking an African Safari with Kids
Ciao Bambino!
by Lissa Poirot
1M ago
A safari in Africa is, plain and simple, a bucket-list vacation. It requires a lot of time and money, and for many families, it may be a trip they only take once. But seeing the plains of Africa and watching animals in the wild leaves you with a lifetime of memories. To this day, I can recall the sound of hippos keeping me awake at night at a camp along a river and waking to the sound of a lion roaring, eager to start a drive knowing that lions were close. From the dark sky filled with stars you rarely get to see back at home to the friendliness of the people, even to the smell of the “incense ..read more

A Week in the Realm of Greek Gods: Visiting Crete with Kids
Ciao Bambino!
by Lissa Poirot

Ever since my daughter was able to read on her own, she has been fascinated with Greek mythology. Fueled by the adventures of Percy Jackson (the mortal demigod and son of Poseidon), she’s wanted nothing more than to see the cradle of the myths she loves so much. Said by some to be the birthplace of Zeus, king of the Greek gods, Crete is a treasure trove of mythological history, not to mention beautiful island scenery. While you won’t find a sea of whitewashed buildings with blue-domed roofs like in Santorini, Crete is the largest of the Greek Isles and features diverse terrain ranging fro ..read more
