I travel with my kids constantly and so far this has been the best tours we have been on. We took a tour in Rome and Florence. Both were outstanding. I couldn’t believe how engrossed both guides were able to keep our kids. Just when they might lose them they would ask a question or pull out a visual. I feel like myself, my husband, and my three kids (13, 10, and 7) got a ton out of both tours. We learned a lot and saw a lot. Often when visiting European cities we get lost and turned around walk to much and just plain wear our kids out. The beauty of the tour is the guide knows exactly where they are going and you will see tons of attractions and sights in a short period of time. What we saw in 4 hours would have taken us 4 days!

Safety Alert. At the Academia Gallery security measures including metal detectors have been introduced. Due to increased security measures, some lines may form on tours with skip the line access. Because of the security measures, the lines for entry to the museum may be long during peak seasons and holidays. All visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors. This cannot be skipped and a lengthy line can form. We can skip the ticket line but not the security checkpoint that applies to all visitors, including those with skip the line access.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
We appreciate the service you provided. While it was expensive, it was worth it. The skip the line feature at the Vatican and Coliseum was quite the time and sanity saver. We had our 4 and 6 year olds with us and we knew they would have a limited amount of energy for sightseeing. We didn’t want to waste it in line. Plus, it was quite fun walking past all the people who had stood in line for 2 hours. We only had 2 full days to spend in Rome and would not have seen and done as much as we did without our tour guide. Our guide was Catia and she was wonderful. She was patient with our kids. She was very personable. She gave us a background and history of the places we visited and pointed out things regular sightseers wouldn’t notice. We enjoyed our time spent with her immensely. At one point, our 4 year old was tired and cranky and hungry for Nutella. Catia remembered there was a place nearby that had a Nutella pizza and called ahead to confirm. That pizza was probably our kids’ favorite meal in Italy and it averted a major meltdown. We were appreciative of Catia’s thoughtfulness.
It’s difficult with small children on a regular tour as they have their own special needs and pacing, but having a private tour with Nancy Aiello was the way to make everyone happy.
I would most definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to my family and friends. We saw and experienced more than we would have in Rome than under any other circumstance. We were quite pleased with the experience.
I googled Rome for children and you were recommended in several travel sites and blogs. We looked at your website and saw that a couple of your tours looked exactly what we wanted.
Thank you. We were very pleased.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our time spent on the tours of Rome with Nancy Aiello Tours three weeks ago. Our tour guide Mariella was absolutely WONDERFUL (and so was our driver on the first evening tour). We never felt rushed and both were so accommodating to the various needs of my family including bathroom breaks as well as pizza & gelato stops. I was thrilled when we had the same tour guide for all of our tours in Rome. She really got to know us – which was no easy feat considering we had 4 generations present on this trip. I wished that there was Nancy Aiello tours in the other countries we visited on this trip! I will absolutely use NA when visiting Rome again and will recommend using your company to all my friends. Thank you so very much for being so patient with me as I decided which tours I wanted to take.
