My apologies for being slow to follow up. I am finally over my jet lag! Just wanted to thank you for your help in setting up our tours in Rome, Florence, and Venice. We had an extraordinary time. All of your guides were very knowledgeable, and Vincenzo, Elisabetta, and Emilio were really exceptional. Vincenzo and Elisabetta in particular knew how to engage and entertain our ten-year-old son, and their passion for history and architecture really left an impression on all of us. Would you please pass our regards along to them? Do let me know, too, whether it would be helpful to provide some more formal feedback. Thanks and regards

Murano is a great living example of the central role that family and traditions play in a community and history. The history of glassblowing dates back to the Middle Ages and it is brought to us by masters whose fathers and grandfathers have been in this craft. Generations of glass-makers apprenticed their sons and daughters to make sure this precious art survived. Your children imagination run wild as they see artisans creating intricate handcrafted pieces.

Burano is a picturesque fishing village with a dazzling array of candy colored small houses. Each house has different colors. Legend has it that the fishermen used this to their advantage as the colors helped them navigate their way home through the fog. Burano lace tradition dates back to 1500 but today you can still see old ladies that hand-made lace. Burano is also home to a bell tower that over the years has started to lean. It may not be the Leaning Tower of Pisa but children will enjoy catching a glimpse of this unique bell tower.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
My children and I enjoyed our tours very much!
Our overall experience was fantastic!
The booking process was easy. The person I communicated with, Ann, was very professional and helpful. Both tours were great. Our guides for each tour Cynthia for the Vatican, Laura for the Colosseum were very knowledgeable and interesting. They kept my children engaged, and moved the tour along at a pace that worked well for us. My children said they’d rather learn about the world with private tour guides like the ladies we met in Rome, than by going back to their classrooms. I would you recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to families and friends. I came across Nancy Aiello Tours through Ciao Bambino website. Thanks for providing such a wonderful service. Our trip to Rome and our understanding of the various sites would not have been the same without your excellent tour guides.
We had a wonderful time in Italy. Your guides were fantastic. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about Florence and all of the art and architecture in the City. He was able to engage my 80-year-old parents and my teenage sons. Stephania was a fabulous guide in Pompeii. She had tremendous energy and enthusiasm for the subject matter and really made ancient Pompeii come to life for us. Lucia was just as fabulous as Marco and Stephania. She had lots of great things to tell us about Rome, ancient life in Rome, Roman history and all of the art and architecture. Her tour of the Vatican was superb. My whole family can’t stop talking about how great all of your guides were. They really made the trip. All of your drivers were extremely friendly and accommodating. I will recommend your tour company to everyone! Thank you!
