I wanted to follow up on our tours we had last week. We had an absolute wonderful experience with both of our guides. They truly made our trip to Italy wonderful. We loved Lucia in Rome; the kids will never forget her. We are so thankful we were able to spend three days with her. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to her!
We also had a great experience with Stephania in Pompeii. She kept our tired and hot children engaged and happy the entire time, which as a parent, is priceless! We will absolutely recommend your company to anyone traveling to Italy. We wish you were in more countries!! Thanks again,

Your expert kid-friendly guide opens your eyes to the world of the Romans through informative stories and myths that entertains the whole family.

Put this Ostia family tour on your must see list if you are interested in ancient Rome history and archaeology but do not have time to travel all to Pompeii. Ostia Antica, also known as the Better Pompeii, is a huge archaeological site perfect for hands-on exploring. Outstanding as Pompeii but far less touristy and easier to reach the ancient Roman port town of Ostia is located just a short ride from the city. Moreover, without the crowds of Pompeii it is much easier to let your imagination run wild and feel like archaeologists for a day!
Walk along cobbled streets among 2000 years old temples, houses, and shopping arcades in the footsteps of sailors and merchants. From the bakery to the fishmongers, from the bars, restaurants and public toilets to the town square, every stop reveals images of a rich, bustling port life. Some buildings are three stories high and it is possible to climb the steps and take in the view the sheer extent of the well-preserved ruins. Explore the amphitheater and hear interesting facts and tales about gladiators and actors. There is no end to the fun, as you discover mosaics and frescoes depicting mythical characters. Ostia family tour has all the ingredients for an exciting trip time traveling back to the days of the Romans. Contact us for pricing and availability.

My overall experience was very good. I have to say that the BEST was the person I never met that was Ann, who coordinated everything via email. She responded immediately, even on Sundays, resolved all our issues and helped in every possible way.
The tour guides where nice and courteous, but with everything involving humans some where better than others. Our tour guide in Florence was very knowledgeable!
I would definitely recommend it to my friends!
Excellent experience – from the booking through the actual tours. We appreciated having the same tour guide (Laura) for both our evening tour and our walking tour of old Rome. Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was enlightening. I booked the tours because it was my family’s first visit to Rome and I wanted to ensure that they had an understanding of the history and saw the highlights. My sister and I have been to Rome several times (walking with a guide book, taking big bus tours for a day, etc) but we “saw” so much more on our tours with Laura. I have already recommended you to a colleague who will be in Rome with his family in November. I had googled “what to do with kids in Rome” and found a mommy travel blog that recommended your agency, so I took a look at your website and decided to ask some questions (less than 2 weeks before our arrival in Rome). We were fortunate enough to book 2 different tours.
