I would highly recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to friends and family, especially those with children.
I found Nancy Aiello Tours on the CiaoBambino website and the more research I did on your company, glowing reviews kept coming up.
Thank you for making Rome so interesting and easy!

Can the Venice Exclusive Family Tour Package be modified?
The itinerary can be personalized around the ages of your family, your travel dates, activity choices, and other custom preferences. 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 do not work with fixed itineraries. We do not have set group departure dates. 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. We will refine your tour package until you are 100% satisfied. We are dedicated to working with you to ensure that the final itinerary is exactly what you want. To get started, please fill out our custom trip planning form.
What are the departure dates for the Venice Exclusive Family Tour Package?
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 Venice Exclusive 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 Venice Exclusive 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.
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.
Please inquire for a custom quote. The price of our tailor-made private vacations is quoted on an individual basis depending on party size and activity choices, travel dates, and other custom preferences.
The type of family trips we plan start at € 1,000 per day for four travelers (excluding airfares). Please keep in mind that every vacation, like every guest, is different. No two are alike, which is why costs can vary a lot and it will depend on the services and arrangements you decide to include.

Rome by Night Tour
In-Depth Ancient Rome Tour
In-Depth Vatican Tour
Both of our guides were outstanding. We loved them and have already recommended them to friends.
Awesome!!! We absolutely loved our tour of ancient Rome. Our guide was fun, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. This experience was highlight of our stay in Rome. My only regret is that we left in a bit of a hurry – my husband’s luggage was lost, he was wearing same clothes from travel & uncomfortably hot & anxious to replenish wardrobe – thus, I neglected to tip our guide. I feel terrible as he was so good with our family & kids have been talking about what they learned. If we had more time in the city I would have arranged for another guided tour of St. Peter’s. Please excuse tardy review, my internet connection hasn’t been dependable during the trip. We return to Rome tomorrow for a night before returning to Chicago with wonderful memories.
Our tour was July 4th. I am embarrassed to admit I do not remember our guides name – I think it was Vincenzo. Blame memory on jet lag…Kathleen Mitchell
