We really enjoyed our Vatican tour with Lucia. She was an outstanding guide and kept it interesting for all of us.
We would recommend Nancy Aiello tours to friends. I found it through a web search for good tours of Vatican for families.

Although David is the star attraction at the Accademia Gallery there are also four unfinished marble statues called the unfinished Slaves, or Prisoners. The artist gave each statue a distinct identity. The artworks were commissioned for the tomb of Pope Julius II who died before these were completed.

Our guide Lucia was fantastic she spoke to our 8 year old boy at the perfect level for his interests and abilities, she was “young and cool” so he was more engaged with her and she was very understanding and accommodating of the needs of also travelling with a 3 year old. Her knowledge was fantastic and her professionalism made the tour run smoothly and very stress free despite two children!
In one sentence I would say that hiring a guide through Nancy Aiello meant our little boy is now far more knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Ancient Roman history than he ever would have been through school or listening to his parents!
I would definitely recommend you to anyone who was looking for a family friendly guide for Rome and I would definitely book again when we return. I came across you through a review of a similar tour on a website called Ciao Bambino.
We find the experience very pleasant, caring and trustworthy all the way through. we would definitely rate every single part of the tour the top of the gauge. thanks very much for the thoughtful and customizable arrangement!
We would be back in touch without hesitation should the travel takes us to Italy again.Haifeng
