Detailed Description

Italy is known as a world of food and ancient ruins, home to Rome and Leonardo da Vinci, the Vatican and Michelangelo. It is a country filled with romance and wonder, where even kids can enjoy the majesty of the past and the splendor of art history rising all around them. Family has been and remains an important part of the culture. On your 8-day kid friendly vacation to Rome, Tuscany, and the Vatican, you will find every moment bringing your family closer together, whether strolling in a museum on a private tour or eating gelato in a quiet square. Children chase pigeons and teenagers lounge on benches near tranquil fountains with the aroma of homemade cuisine emanating from the buildings.

Your family vacation begins with your arrival in Rome. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and escorts you to a luxurious hotel in the heart of the city. Take time to stroll along the cobblestone streets and absorb the enticing aromas drifting from restaurants and gelaterias. Tour the famous, and even infamous, ruins including a VIP tour of the Colosseum.

Later in the day, you will have an After-Hours Tour of the Vatican Museum, home to Rafael’s School of Athens and, of course, the Sistine Chapel. Next, tour the neighborhood of Trastevere with your food guide, an area known for its delightful flavors and traditional Roman cuisine. With your guide, visit the less explored regions of ancient Rome where you will see a series of exquisite ruins obscured by history. You continue your exploration of the culture with a cooking course taught by a chef and traditional Italian grandmother who will pass down her secret recipes.

Then, travel northbound to Tuscany, settling in the Renaissance city of Florence, and visit two distinct palaces that will inspire the whole family. The following day, travel into the Tuscan countryside and visit the medieval town of Siena. Travel back to Florence where it is once again yours to enjoy. Visit the splendid masterworks of the Uffizi Gallery, and offer the kids a place to roam in the exquisite Boboli Gardens of the Pitti Palace. On your final morning, your private transfer meets you at the hotel and escorts the family to the Peretola Airport for your flight home.
