Savvy Tip

Once you have a baby, your days of trekking through Tuscany are over, right? Wrong, says the founder of Ciao Bambino, a company specializing in family trips to Italy. Begun by Amie O'Shaughnessy last year, the firm solves parents' travel problems, big and small: finding child-friendly hotels and villas, planning itineraries that won't bore the kids, arranging for sitters, and renting cribs. Ciao Bambino also gives advice on where to eat and buy diapers and supplies, as well as how to navigate Italian medical facilities. It can arrange excursions just for grown-ups, too. $ Consultation, $200; 866-802-0300;
