Not so long ago, when the subject of terrorism and its effects on international travel came up, we weren't usually talking about Europe. Unfortunately, the horrific Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris on Jan. 7 and the subsequent foiled attacks in Belgium, Germany and even the Vatican, have changed the conversation. Not surprisingly, safety is especially concerning to family travelers, according to Adrien Glover, vice president of content for ItaliaRail. Glover presented her findings on travel safety to media and travel trend analysts at the recent TMS Family Travel Summit, held in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico.

For those of you with similar thoughts: Don't hold your breath.
