The Amalfi Coast

Family Holidays on the Amalfi Coast with Babies, Toddlers and Kids

The Amalfi Coast runs along the West coast of Italy between Naples and Rome. It is one of the most picturesque stretches of coastline that you are likely to see with charming towns and villages built into the steep hills and turquoise blue waters. It is traditionally a place where couples visit but there are plenty of great family friendly hotels (See Where to Stay) and restaurants and there are also many beaches which kids will enjoy although many of these are rocky.

It is not the most child friendly place but it is manageable if you plan the trip well. One thing to remember is that many of the seaside towns are built onto steep hills making it difficult to manoeuvre around with a stroller so a sling is essential if you will be doing a lot of sightseeing! These steps and hills make it a particularly challenging place to take babies and toddlers. Another issue is that buses in this region can get quite crowded during the summer months so bear this in mind as it can be difficult to get on and off with a stroller at peak times. Also, this region can be quite hot during the summer and you will need to ensure you protect babies and toddlers from the sun.
