A history of the Medici is also a history of Italy. At the apex of their power and influence, the Medici were the prime movers and shakers of the age. They were responsible for the creation of the Medici Bank, one of the largest and most remarkable banks in Europe during its heyday. The House of Medici produced four Popes of the Catholic Church, two queens of France and lastly, countless achievements in the grounds of music, art, poetry, literacy, philosophy and the sciences. From Popes to modern accounting systems, the Medici family has an ongoing effect on the modern world.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Venice Discovery Family Tour 

    We had a wonderful day with Nadia from Nancy Aiello Tours. Friends of mine had told me to request Nadia specifically as they had had such an invaluable tour with her. They were correct. With our family of six (grandparents, adults and teenagers), Nadia showed us her Venice. She took us up back alley ways and for coffee in a quaint boutique hotel which we would never have found on our own. She made sure we saw everything we were interested in and the children (or oldies for that matter) never once complained!
    I will definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to others who are planning on visiting Venice and will definitely use them when we travel to Italy again.
    Thank you for your organising such a wonderful experience for us.
    Best wishes and Happy New Year.

  • Private Transfer to Rome from Naples Airport with Pompeii Discovery Family Trip

    Hi,
    We are definitely going to review our tour on trip advisor upon our return home. Our driver was incredibly punctual, professional and helped make our experience amazing including his recommendations for lunch. We were well taken care of and really appreciated the care he took when driving around…made us feel very safe!  Our guide in the ruins of Pompeii was incredibly knowledgeable and really provided us insight into what life would have been like. The ruins she showed us were first rate and she moved us through massive crowds expertly so we felt at times we were the only ones on Pompeii. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone including family and friends.  Thank you for a most amazing experience!  I originally found you by chance on the Internet and it worked out wonderfully for us!  Thank you!  Please pass on our thanks and praise to your staff who helped us enjoy our day so much!
