We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

This week at the Passported HQ, we've been fielding questions left and right about what to do in Italy this summer. Some clients are looking for over-the-top destinations for big-number birthdays and honeymoons, while others are families seeking to unwind in style. We love la dolce vita, so we have no problem chatting all day about Tuscan villas and Amalfi coast getaways. Read on to get the scoop on what we've been buzzing about all week. 


POSITANO

Le Sirenuse (left) is one of the dreamiest places in the world. From the champagne bar overlooking the sea to the classic decor and boho-chic crowd, this is the ultimate splurge when on the Amalfi (kids must be over the age of 6 to stay). If you're looking for something more on budget, check out the Palazzo Murat (right), an eighteenth-century palace, also on the cliffs overlooking the famous church. 


LAKE COMO

Northern Italy, land of Gorgeous George and where the mountains meet the lake, is a truly idyllic destination for sun-seekers in the summer. Villa d'Este (left) is a luxe escape with lush grounds and grand rooms plus villas for larger parties. Our other favorite, Grand Hotel Tremezzo (right) features two pools, including one in the lake, and a deck for lounging. No one would call Tremezzo a bargain, but you will find rates lower than at Este. 


TUSCANY

Castligion del Bosco (left) epitomizes Tuscan charm. This Ferragamo-owned estate (yep, that Ferragamo) has suites as well as private villas, plus a winery, golf course, kids' club and cooking classes. But for a prime summer spot, you better be ready to splurge. Alternatively, head over to our other love, La Bandita (right). A country house owned by an American music producer, this dreamy retreat has all of the magical local flair, great food and a stylish, house-party vibe that's a fit for couples or families.
