Detailed Description

Tours to Italy are always an adventure. The Old World mixes with the new, spotlighting rich traditions and lavish architecture, majestic mythologies, and breathtaking artwork. Your 9-day family vacation tour to Rome, Tuscany, and Venice takes you through a timeless exploration of cobblestone streets and ancient columns. Learn to make pasta a family tradition from a traditional family farm. Savor an unparalleled view of the Grand Canal from your hotel and bask in a private tour of the Vatican Museum. Italy will bring the family closer together in its splendor, where every day is sure to be unforgettable.

The family vacation begins with your arrival in Rome. Your private transfer meets you at the airport ready to whisk you away to your luxurious hotel near Vatican City. The family can settle in the city with dinner and their first official taste of Italy. The following day your private guide meets you at the hotel and leads you through historic piazzas and lavish streets of the city until lunch. After your meal, you are treated to a VIP tour of the Colosseum, taking you through the ins and outs of the historic Roman edifice.

On your third day, your guide will take the family around St. Peter’s Basilica and traverse the cylindrical walls of Castel Sant’Angelo. You continue into the Vatican Museum for an After-Hours Tour, where those allowed entrance to the museum are few, making it so you can hear your feet shuffle across the marble floor.

The following day your private transfer escorts you out of Rome and into Umbria and the cliff-top town of Orvieto. Enjoy lunch on an Italian estate and settle into the Tuscan countryside before your elaborate Tuscan inspired dinner.

You make your way into the Tuscan hills to visit a local farm near the medieval town of San Gimignano. Your private chef teaches the family how to make traditional regional pasta, followed by a nearby winery tour where the adults can sample the beautiful flavors, and the kids can explore the tastes of locally produced olive oil. The kids delight in the evening dinner set in a medieval castle.

In Florence, the family explores the treasures of the city. Your guide leads you through the historic streets, from the Duomo to the Accademia, before your private tour of the Palazzo Vecchio. The secret passages capture the kids’ imaginations.

Set out on a bullet train to Venice where your private gondolier meets you on the banks of the Grand Canal. Travel under the Rialto Bridge before your tour of Piazza San Marco and the world famous Basilica. The next day your guide leads you through the sensational history of the Doge’s Palace, inspiring the kids with adventurous activities along the way. After your tour, you have a private, hands-on workshop to create a unique Carnevale mask before a celebratory dinner. After your final breakfast in Venice, your private transfer meets the family at the hotel and escorts you to the airport for your flight home.
