The Amalfi Coast is one of the most popular tourist spots in Italy. But, while you might not think twice about visiting this place, the same cannot be done if you are traveling with a toddler. The villages and the terrains are completely astounding here but the vertical landscape makes it a hard place to explore with your toddler.
Can you imagine carrying your toddler down those endless stairs? I shudder to even think about it. However, all is not lost, you can still enjoy a trip to the beautiful Amalfi Coast with your toddler but you would need to plan properly.
Here are a few tips to help you out with this.
Choose a Toddler-Friendly Accommodation
A lot of accommodations available in Amalfi Coast arenâ€™t suitable for kids or donâ€™t allow kids. So, depending on the time of your visit, duration, and the number of people traveling, you will need to decide between a villa and a hotel.
Make sure if you opt for a villa, it has proper fencing around the area so that your toddler doesnâ€™t wander off to someone elseâ€™s house.
Choose a Convenient Location for your Accommodation
If you are traveling with a toddler, avoid renting a car in the Amalfi Coast as the roads are thin and dangerous. Your main mode of transportation will be buses or walking. So, opt for an accommodation which is closer to the water, bus stops, restaurants, etc. so that you donâ€™t have to walk too far.
Opt for Amalfi Coast Private Tours
Make sure you opt for kid-friendly excursions or go for Amalfi Coast Private Tours which will provide you with added convenience and comfort.
These private tours will provide you with a proper transportation mode and will take care of everything, from the tickets to the meals. So, you only have to take care of your kid and enjoy yourself.
Bring Adequate Gears for Traveling with your Toddler
Pack a lightweight, easy-to-use stroller with a built-in sunshade or an external canopy.
One of the most convenient options to carry your toddler around would be in a backpack. You can also attempt some local hikes this way and donâ€™t have to spend too much time on folding/unfolding the stroller. Also, a car seat is a must, even if you are taking Amalfi coast private tours because most tour operators wonâ€™t provide this for young kids.
Backpack your Way into Pompeii
Pompeii is one of the best attractions in Amalfi Coast as you can witness how the people lived here in 79AD when it used to be covered with Mt. Vesuviusâ€™s ashes. But, it is a challenge to bring your toddler here because the paths are mostly dry and rocky.
So, getting the stroller here is a big NO. A better idea would be to get a backpack in which you can carry your kid, although you have to consider your kidâ€™s weight for it.
