ADD ON One Hour Private Guided Motor Boat Ride.
With this optional upgrade guests have their own exclusive private motor boat, a separate boat driver and a separate tour guide for a total of 2 professional people at disposal for 60 minutes to experience Venice waterways in comfort and style.

Note to parents with small children: Although Venice is a wonderful place to visit it is not the most stroller friendly place. This beautiful city has the singular characteristic of being built on water and consequently there are no cars, lots of bridges, and lots of sidewalks along the canals. While there are many positive aspects of being in a city with no cars, it is not easy to get around with strollers as everything is cobblestone and you need to go up and down bridges constantly. Taking a child in a stroller will involve a significant amount of lugging the stroller up and then going down, over each bridge. Consider putting young children in a backpack carrier whenever possible.

When you contact our family vacation consultants let us know as much about your children interests in order to make the experience as interesting as possible for them.

Those traveling between November and March may wish to bring rubber boots in preparation for Venice’s acqua alta (high water).

A little advance preparation in learning about the city will reward you and your family with a very enjoyable visit. To enhance the experience, Nancy Aiello Tours suggests children books so that you can prepare for the trip.

Do you combine people to share the tour?

All our tours are private, luxurious, and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else – without having to accommodate other people’s interests. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Best of Rome Evening Tour

    Hello Ann,
    I just wanted to tell you how amazing our tour was last night due entirely to our guide and driver. Lucia has such a thorough knowledge of the history of the city and she explains things in a way that we were completely enthralled. I have been on the evening tour before but I feel like I learned even more about the city and history. We can’t thank her enough and my parents are really looking forward to their tour of the Vatican with her on Friday. Also I wanted to say how nice and friendly our driver Lorenzo was. He safely and expertly delivered us from one site to another always making sure we were comfortable and had the best drop off and pickup points.
    Thank you to all for making this trip once again so memorable!

  • Borghese Gallery Children Tour

    We booked the Borghese family tour and it was absolutely fantastic. My 10 year old boy who like most 10 year olds has a limited attention span was absorbed and engaged by Maria. She was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He and Maria buddied up and we trailed behind with smiles on our faces. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants a taste of what the Borghese museum has to offer. I have used Nancy Aiello before and have always been very pleased.

    Tuscany Day Trip

    To: Nancy Aiello Tours
    From: Bertoncini & Killgoar Families
    I came across Aiello Tours on the Internet while researching Family Oriented Tours of Italy. Ann, who was precise, through and informative, answered my email in a very timely manner. Needless to say I was very impressed. Over the weeks preceding our trip she helped arrange for family tours of Rome, transportation to and from the airport, as well as a heritage tour from our rented Tuscan Villa. All were executed precisely as requested. All the tours were wonderful, informative and professionally done.
    I must make special mention of our Tour Guide in Rome, Lucy. I cannot say enough about her. She had the unique ability to provide an entertaining tour for the children while at the same time provide a wonderful and informative tour into Roman culture and history. My husband and son-in-law were history majors in college and were thoroughly impressed by the insightfulness of the tour. We all felt that it was one of the best tours we had ever taken.
    My family of 9 ages 5yr to 65 yrs would highly recommend Aiello Tours.
    Thanks Lucy, we couldn’t have done it without you.
