Hi all! For our anniversary in 2008, I took my wife to Italy and we fell in love with the country (of course). I've gotten to travel a lot internationally for work since then, but she hasn't had a chance to leave the US again. So I'm wanting to take her again for our anniversary this year. The difference between our former and current situation is that we have two young children who will be 5 years old and 18 months when we plan to take the trip (late September into early October). I'm currently thinking three weeks with maybe three cities so that we can truly do the Slow Travel thing. Here's my question for the hive mind: are we insane? I've read a lot of different travel blogs about European travel with children, but none seem to mention kids as young as ours. Are there special considerations we should take that maybe aren't obvious? Any places or activities to avoid? Any that we should definitely hit? Has anyone travelled with children this young before? My older son loves to travel (we take a lot of domestic trips inside the US) and is very inquisitive. The baby is, well, a baby and will more often than not be strapped to my chest.
