We learned so much about Rome during the time and the sites in the catacombs brought it all to life. It was a fabulous learning experience for the whole family soaking up the rich culture and exploring the rich history of Rome. The underground trip was extraordinary not spooky, just fascinating. The atmosphere is suitably gloomy without being scary. This tour had my children’s attention and enthusiasm from the start to the end of our morning adventure. The stories and the way our guide made the history of the ancient ruins came alive and helped my children to learn about a different “side” of Rome.

Custom Lucca Private Half-Day Tour from Florence
In a word “fantastic”. Our guide, Cristina (sorry if I spelt her name incorrectly) was fantastic and her knowledge was thorough and she kept my 7 year old daughter totally interested and engaged.
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!
Very good experience. Tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly.
