Hi everyone, I am looking for some advice for an upcoming trip. My wife and I have a 2 week trip booked to Europe in July with our 7 month old daughter. We are visiting family in London but have dedicated 8 nights for Italy. We've spent some time in Rome and north (Tuscany, cinque terre, Venice) so we were hoping to explore either Sicily or in and near the Amalfi Coast. With an infant, we know it will be difficult to make too many stops so we were thinking of staying in only 1-2 places for the duration. I'm looking for any recommendations for the following:
- locations with an infant (Sicily vs. Amalfi as I think it might be too much to try both)
- transportation with an infant (based on some preliminary research, if we do Sicily I think we may need to rent a car, do we bring a carseat from the states? it seems ridiculous but maybe necessary... or if we do Amalfi, could we just do trains/bus?)
lodging (one idea was to rent an apt or small villa for the duration as a home base, or different small hotels)
- carrier (We have an Ergo so we're hoping to use that exclusively throughout our stops to avoid a stroller, but open to any suggestions from experience)
Thanks everyone for your time and suggestions!
