Italians love children, so you will more than likely not have any problems with family travel while in Italy. I have been to several places in Italy with my boys and always find it very easy going. Very relaxing and family-friendly.
If you look below you will find all my blog articles from the places in Italy I have visited with my children with lots of information on places we visited while away.

Travel To Italy
From the UK: You will be spoilt for choice for which airport to fly into. We have flown into several airports over the years, so if you are looking for the best airport you need to check the Italian airport website to see which airlines fly into it. From there you can then hopefully fly from the nearest airport to you.
Travelling in Italy
Car: Renting a car can be done from all airports (from our knowledge) and also in some bigger cities. If taking your own car from the UK (which my parents have done!) then remember to check what the local laws are and make sure your car has been serviced. Remember they drive on the right in Italy.
Public Transport: We have used trains while travelling in Italy and they are very efficient. Remember you will need to validate any train tickets before boarding the train otherwise it may become invalid and you will have to pay again. The train website is – Trenitalia, and is easy to use. You can search for the journey you are wanting to do, which will then show you the times all the trains go.
Taxis: Taxis can be found outside airports and in the major cities (waiting outside train stations etc) You can also phone for taxis locally. Just ask your hotel reception for details (they may even phone on your behalf) As with most countries you can also pre-book taxis for a set time.
