Dear Nancy Aiello Team,
I learned about your tour company from my friend Lucinda Kang who used your guides in Rome. She was the person who suggested getting a private guide to get the most of our Italy for our family. We signed up for 2 tours in Rome and 1 in Florence and had 3 different guides. We thought all of the guides were very knowledgeable, comfortable with our children and answering questions. We also liked the very thorough historical and cultural perspective. Sometimes, our kids got a little bored, but it was easy to draw them back into the tour with interesting info. We really lucked out with weather on all of our dates and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you!

The itinerary can be personalized around the ages of your family, your travel dates, activity choices, and other custom preferences. This sample itinerary may be personalized in any way such as addition or subtraction of sights or extension into other cities. Our published tours are intended to serve as a “starting point” for the trip you ultimately end up taking. These sample itineraries are based on our own expertise and firsthand experience. While it is fine to decide to take a trip exactly as it appears on our web site, most people prefer to work with one of our travel experts to create an itinerary that meets their interests and preferences. All our tours can be customized, modified or tweaked. From designing a custom experience from scratch to modifying an existing itinerary, the only limit is your creativity!
How does the trip planning work?
Our job is to marry your request with our expertise, making sure you end up with a trip that fits your needs. We do not work with fixed itineraries. We do not have set group departure dates. We start from scratch and build the trip you want. You will work with one of our travel specialists to design the vacation of your dreams. To create your personalized itinerary we must be aware of what you want. Once we have a clear sense of your travel style we can start creating your tailor-made itinerary, including hotel preferences, transportation and suggested tours and other special activities at one cost to you. We will refine your tour package until you are 100% satisfied. We are dedicated to working with you to ensure that the final itinerary is exactly what you want.

What are the departure dates for the Exclusive Rome Amalfi Coast Family Trip ?
There are no set departure dates. You can depart on whatever day you wish. All of our tours are private and built from scratch, which means that there are not set itineraries nor scheduled departure dates. Our custom tours can be any dates, any place and in any style that you want to travel.
Do you book flights?
We do not book flights.
Are hotels included in the Exclusive Rome Amalfi Coast Family Trip?
Hotels are NOT included in the tour package. Each person has personal preferences and requirements. As a result, we intentionally do not include any hotels in the itinerary. Nevertheless, as part of the trip planning service, we will help you select and book hotels perfectly tailored to your itinerary.
We believe that where you stay is an integral part of your overall enjoyment of the trip. We understand the importance of staying within your travel budget. With a budget in mind we would be able to recommend a whole variety of accommodations, such as chic boutique hotels, beautiful villas, luxury apartments and more…the choice is yours. Enhance your dream trip with our hotel choices matching your preferences and price range. As there are endless options for you to choose from we are happy to offer our own personalized hotel recommendations.
How do you choose the hotels you recommend?
To ensure that you stay in the best places we have visited hotels all over Italy. We are very selective with our choices. It has taken years of experience to weed out the good hotels from the great, so you can trust that we stand behind the services we recommend. We only choose accommodations where we would wish to stay ourselves. We look for high standards of personal service and attention to detail.
Are meals included in the Exclusive Rome Amalfi Coast Family Trip?
We understand that local food is an important component of any trip. Everybody has different tastes and we have found that our guests enjoy the spontaneity of discovering restaurants on their own. As a result, we intentionally do not include any meals in the itinerary to allow you the freedom to mix with the locals. Nevertheless, your guide is happy to recommend restaurants and advise on local specialties.
Are train tickets included in the Exclusive Rome Amalfi Coast Family Trip?
Train tickets are not included in the cost of the tour package. We do NOT handle train tickets however, we can advise on trains when that is your choice for in-country traveling.
Do we skip the line to enter the major museums and monuments?
Yes. This tour package includes priority-entrance tickets to skip the lines. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry. Recently due to increased security concerns, new screening procedures were put in place for entry to the popular sites. Due to increased security measures ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, even those with skip the line access. Because of the security measures, the lines for entry the major attractions may be quite long during peak seasons and holidays. However, no time will be wasted. Your experienced guide will use this time to provide an overview and contextualization for the tour.
How far ahead do I need to book my trip with you?
We are a boutique tour planning company. We do not sell someone else’s trip but we create, plan and run our own luxury journeys. Our philosophy is that we focus on quality rather than quantity therefore, we tend to get booked up very quickly. We encourage you to make your reservation just as early as possible especially, if you are limited to the time period in which you can travel. Reservations are made on a first come, first served basis. The further in advance you are able to make your arrangements the more likely we can secure the holiday you want. This is especially important if you wish to visit Italy during the busy summer and holiday times. Some holiday periods (Easter and school half term weeks, public holidays and the peak summer months) can get booked up very quickly. If you know you want to travel at this time it is a good idea to contact us at your earliest convenience to ensure the dates of your choice are available.
Do I need travel insurance?
Travel insurance is for your protection in the case of an unforeseen event which delays or prevents travel. Nancy Aiello Tours strongly recommends that you purchase a comprehensive travel insurance with many coverage options from basic trip cancellation insurance to full coverage which includes emergency medical assistance. It is very important that you protect your vacation investment in case of trip cancellation/interruption, travel luggage delay or loss of luggage and medical expenses. Travel Insurance gives you peace of mind in safeguarding your investment in the event of a cancellation prior to or during your trip.
A comprehensive travel insurance gives you coverage for unforeseen problems, from a cancelled flight to a serious illness. If an illness, accident, or other covered unforeseen circumstance forces a traveler to cancel or interrupt their plans, they face two major financial losses, money invested in nonrefundable pre-payments, and medical expenses that in many instances may not be covered by health insurance.
Do you combine people to share a 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. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.
Can we enter the Sistine Chapel without going through the entire Museum?
The Sistine Chapel is part of the Vatican Museums and it is not available separately. One must follow through the entire route of the Museums before entering the Sistine Chapel, which is located on the far end from the Museums entrance. Therefore, the Sistine Chapel located near the end of a long one-way itinerary inside the Museums can only be visited as part of the Vatican tour.
When our private family Vatican tour is over will we be able to visit the grottos or climb the Dome?
Absolutely. This private tour ends in St Peter’s Square, which is a very convenient location to leave for gelato, visit the Vatican bookstore and the Vatican post office, continue to the Vatican Grottoes, where the Papal tombs are, or climb to the Dome. Your guide will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Do you do Scavi tours under the Vatican?
St.Peter’s Necropolis sometimes just called the Scavi or Excavations, which contains tombs dating from the origins of Christianity are organized by the Vatican itself. They accept applications and confirm the tour only the day before. Unless you are planning an extended stay in Rome, you will have trouble arranging this tour. This 90 min. tour into the Excavations of the Necropolis underneath St. Peter’s must book well in advance. You need to email them directly at [email protected] Please keep in mind that children under 11 are not allowed.
Is food allowed inside the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel?
You are not allowed to consume food and drink inside the Museums, except in designated places such as the cafeteria.
Please inquire for a custom quote. The price of our tailor-made private vacations is quoted on an individual basis depending on party size and activity choices, travel dates, and other custom preferences.
The type of family trips we plan start at € 1,000 per day for four travelers (excluding airfares). Please keep in mind that every vacation, like every guest, is different. No two are alike, which is why costs can vary a lot and it will depend on the services and arrangements you decide to include.

Dear Nancy Aiello Team,
Our overall experience was very positive. The booking process was excellent. Everyone at Nancy Aiello tours was extremely responsive to all of our questions (even those unrelated to the tours!). The tours were excellent as well. Samuel did a great job with our tour in Venice. Filippo, who led our tours in Rome, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized and gracious – and he did a tremendous job of engaging our boys in the tours. He enhanced our experiences in Rome beyond description. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.Gregory Ostling

I had been working with another touring agency for two weeks and was continually frustrated that I was getting no where in defining costs, which was important for our budget. They made an initial excellent recommendation about seeing Florence first, but that was it. After 2 weeks, I gave up and searched the web, finding your company among others. The description of your agency and the length of time in business was what made me send an initial inquiry. Within 24 hours, not only had you detailed an itinerary to work from, you had all the costs associated with it! The promptness and detail was what won me over immediately. Rachel was excellent and accommodating to work with. Not only were the initial planning emails detailed and the final reservations easy, your organization followed through wonderfully on every aspect. The drivers were courteous and careful, and dressed in suits and ties even in the hot Italian weather (we encouraged them to lose the coat and tie to be more comfortable). Our drive from Pisa to Rome was especially memorable due to the driver’s congeniality; we even invited him to eat with us. As an opera singer, he regaled us with some of his work and our young daughter reciprocated with her own version of Sunrise, Sunset.
The tour guide in Florence, Elizabetta, was energetic, extremely knowledgeable with a masters in Art History and who was also sensitive to our kid’s needs to stop for a drink or some gelato. Again, we asked her to join us for lunch where we could converse some more. Our stop at her favorite gelato shop resulted in us going there 3 more times before leaving Florence. If it wasn’t so hot, we could have gone on for several more hours.
Our tour guide in Rome, Linda, was great; with children of her own, she was sensitive to my son and daughter. She moved at a quicker pace, skipping over some things to get at areas or topics that would be more interesting for the kids.
The cost of the tour seemed expensive to us at first and is why we deleted some things from our original plan. However, after being with the quality of individuals assigned to us, we think that the value for the money is worth it. We will not hesitate to book with you again or to recommend you to friends planning trips to Italy.
Thank you for helping make our trip to Italy memorable and enjoyable. Please feel free to use this letter or any part of it as testimonial on your website.
