You don't say old DD is but just to say we took DS to Italy in May when he was 9 months old and we all had a great time.

The restaurants were great but there was very limited baby changing around. We were in Tuscany and the only dedicated place we found was in the baby section of a department store in Florence. We even changed him behind a parked car in Lucca as we were getting desperate. It's a case of being resourceful!

Hi Hermykne, We'll be there as well in September. We've booked a bed & breakfast through www.karenbrown.com and a villa through www.summerinitaly.com. I'm really looking forward to it even though I'll be quite big (6 months preggers).

We'll be staying in Florence and Amalfi. AMalfi is probably too remote to reach without a car, I think, although I have heard that the public transportation is pretty good.

Any suggestions for a travel booster seat? Someone on another thread recommended The First Years inflatable. Sorry to intrude on your thread.

Have you got a bit of money to spend? Look at Le Meridiana which is in Albenga, Liguria, between Portofino and Monaco but in the country. It is extremely child friendly and is a Relais and Chateaux hotel and the food in the restaurant is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I am drooling a I type. I got a three day freebie there once and dh and I dream of taking the kids there one day. It has huge, huge rooms, a pool and nice communal areas. Lots of children at breakfast. There is a golf course, but it's not intrusive if that's not your thing. Not trendy, but amazing service.
