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 service work?
Our job is to marry your request with our expertise, making sure you end up with a trip that fits your needs. We design bespoke itineraries and private Italy travel experiences. Our comprehensive itineraries are customized to each traveler and are private. We do not use canned, one size fits all approaches. We do not offer group tours. We do not work with fixed itineraries. We do not have set group departure dates. Instead, 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.

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 Highlights of Rome Family Tour Package?
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 Highlights of Rome Family Tour Package?
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.
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 the 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.

In-Depth Vatican Tour
I wanted to thank you for arranging this tour, Ms. Lucia was amazing! We had the time of our lives and Ms. Lucia was extremely informative and very considerate of my elderly mother’s needs to navigate the stairs, stay as cool as possible, avoid the crowds, etc. She carefully explained what we were seeing and brought the items to life with her description and passion for the subject. I could tell she is very accomplished at what she does, not only because of her deep, personal knowledge of the subject, but also since she is so aware of her guests comprehension level, she can quickly sense when to add more explanation if required. All in all, I could not say that anything could have gone better, except possibly having the rest of the tourists stay home for the day and to have more air conditioning! She was simply fabulous, and I would be more than happy to be a reference for you if you would ever think that would be helpful. My mother and I enjoyed discussing the entire time we spent with Ms. Lucia later that day and going over some of the major points she made that we thought were so insightful. I expect we will continue to discuss this for years to come.
All of the arrangements, such as how to meet in the morning, etc, that you set up worked perfectly as well. It was a pleasure to deal with such a professional group as yours.
Again, thanks for making this trip so special. If you could somehow pass on our thanks to Ms. Lucia, I would be most appreciative.
I would recommend our tour guide and your company. I found you on the internet.
