Ahh... Italy! One of the most popular European destinations - for both adults traveling without kids and families - Italy does not disappoint. Most begin a vacation to Italy with Rome, the country's capital city. The modern city is built around its ancient Roman history like the Collesium and the Roman Forum for a city that shows off its past and present in an unique juxtaposition. Vatican City is here, with its impressive museum collection and religious history, and families will be hard-pressed to see everything in just a few days.

But press on, they do, heading to other historic and beautiful cities like Florence, Venice and Milan, each with its own style, cuisine and stories. Along the extended coastline of Italy, sea-front destinations like Amalfi, Positano and Portofino and islands like Capri and Sicily, lure visitors to sun-kissed beaches and a slower way of life. No matter the destination, the food is to die for, with fresh seafood, fresh pasta, fresh meats and fresh ingredients that parents and kids will enjoy. Whether you plan to visit one or two destinations or want to traverse as much of the country as you can, Italy will go down in your family's memories as one of your favorite vacations: there is something for everyone in Italy!
