@Karlson the mother may simply not be joining the baby and father on the trip? Or may be ill.

@AndrewGrimm no idea, had no intention of looking at all of them :) If it were, say, in Japan, then there'd be a handy list of 12 I would have researched.

Presumably you have a country or region in mind? There are literally HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of palaces worldwide. I protest that this is too broad in its current form.

comment Is there animosity between people from northern and southern Italy?
I think this is on topic. Similar to how some northern Irish / Irish can be upset about certain topics due to historical animosity, it's useful to a traveller to know these things, to avoid saying the wrong thing, and also to understand more about where they're visiting.
