Travel with Children

Children are beloved in these parts, so having kids in tow can make for wonderful encounters with locals that you wouldn’t have otherwise.

  • The range of baby food, formulas, soy and cows’ milk, disposable nappies and the like is almost as extensive as in supermarkets as at home, though you may pay more than you would expect.
  • Strollers can be hindrance to mobility in towns and cities with cobble stones or just messy pavements.
  • If you need children’s safety seats for rented cars, book them in advance.
  • More restaurants provide high chairs, but don't expect cots in hotels.
  • In Albania, praise won’t be lavished on your child – and nor should you lavish praise on Albanian kids – as there are concerns about the all-observant ‘evil eye’.
