I just have to ask 1 thing, isn't it Piazza Navona not Narvona?

Yeah, she misspelled Piazza Navonna. So what? It was a great trip report.

And I cannot imagine taking a big trip like that with a toddler, but more power to her!

Greetings. I don't post a lot on this forums but I read them a lot for advice and is fun and informative. But I could not help but post about your trip report. Is great!. I have to be honest and admit that I'm not sure if I will take a trip with a toddler (I'm currently childless), but I admire you for doing that. I know it takes a lot of work but looks like is very rewarding. I also have ideas now on an Italy trip. I have never been in Europe, but your report is helping me into which one is going to be my first european city. Thanks for an excellent report, your writing style is very fresh,informative, and full of good humor at the same time. Keep up the good work and congratulations on your twin boys.

Ethan and Chase, my two future world explorers, arrived naturally October 18th. The pregnancy was long (38 weeks) and exhausting and all of us are more than thrilled that it's over! Aaron and I agreed our next trip should be a second honeymoon, Rome or maybe Paris, but this time without the three kids

Myra -

Along with so many others who truly enjoyed your trip report, I am very happy for you and your lovely family. I'm sure you are feeling overwhelmed right now (I can only imagine!) but what joy to have three little ones. Ada will have her hands full with, not one, but TWO little brothers to get in her stuff! You think you and your hubby need a second honeymoon now!

Seriously, though, enjoy them. They really do grow up all too soon.

Many, many best wishes,

Great report. When my two kids were 8 months and two years I traveled in Europe for two months to research a family travel guidebook. I must say I was a bit tired during the trip, but overall we had an excellent trip and the tedium of daily life with a baby and a toddler was made much more exotic by our stops. I encourage everyone to get up and go! The flight over, especially from the west coast, can be a bear, as can the first couple of nights with the time change, but after that, it's pure delight.
