When we found out that we were going to Germany for a month, Italy was a natural destination for travel afterwards. Bursting with history, I wanted to show the kids another culture, another country, another time. Italy delivered. They experienced and saw so many new and old things that they had never seen before. We made many memories that we will all cherish for many years to come.

Having said that, traveling with kids has its own pains. But as they say, time heals all pains, and I am happy to report that 3 months has almost completely washed away the memory of our bad days. 8)

We learned a few lessons along the way, usually the hard way. Hopefully it will help you have a better travel experience.  Feel free to check out our travel destinations in Italy:
