Italy Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

Ciao Bambino’s roots run deep when it comes to planning kid-friendly family vacations to Italy — indeed, it’s how we got our name! Our clients consistently rank it as one of the very best destinations for children and adults alike. The ancient cities dazzle, and children love pretending to be gladiators in Rome as they visit the Colosseum, sketching just like the great artists of Florence, or even learning to row a gondola in Venice. Be sure to carve out time for Italy’s other impressive regions, like rural Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast and lesser-known areas like Puglia or Sicily. Cooking classes, bike tours and even winery visits that are kid-friendly round out an Italian vacation. Italy offers so much in accommodation options for families, from agriturismos with old-world charm to modern 5-star hotels and everything in between. We can help you make your Italy family vacation a dream come true, from helping to sort through family hotels in Rome to finding a kid-friendly tour guide. We even know the best gelato stops!

Our Happy Travelers
"Our trip was amazing! We owe a lot of that success to you for your knowledge, planning and communication. I frankly don’t know how someone going to Italy for their first time can actually see and learn all we covered without your help. The private guides are a must when visiting the historical sites. The private transportation is a must in Europe! The dining recommendations were all A-list."

–Van Gundy Family Italy Trip

"Honestly it has been so great! We have loved everything and the tours you set up have been so special."

–Bourgeois Family Italy Trip

"It was a wonderful trip! The guides were amazing. So thoughtful and knowledgeable. Your itinerary was perfect. It was a lot, but not overwhelming. We will 100% think of you and CB first when planning our next big trip."

–Simon Family Italy Trip

"Using you really allowed us to enjoy the trip. According to my husband, you removed every possible area where there could have been friction. I really think that made it so much easier for us (mostly me) and gave us time to focus on the stuff that we wanted to focus on (like finding the best Gelato). The app was amazing at keeping all the info together. You recommended things I never would have thought to do on my own."

–Dioli-Lake Family Italy Trip

"Linda and her team planned the most wonderful trip for our extended family of 15, aged 2-72! She chose dinner and lunch places for every day that exceeded all expectations and would never have been found by us. The tours we took were perfect for the large age span and the guides were wonderful in each one. The trip was considered a success by every single person in the group! Even our two-year-old had so much fun! From cooking lessons in our villa to truffle hunting with dogs, winery tours and Florence city treasure hunts and just days by the pool, we were entertained the whole time. We even had her plan an extension on the trip for just my husband and I for our anniversary and she picked the most romantic place to stay and special dinner in our lives. And best of all, the stress was eliminated by Linda and Ciao Bambino, so this was the first Europe trip we came home from without needing a vacation after our vacation!"

–Symsack Family Italy Trip

"Overall, the trip was fabulous, and we really appreciate how much your planning improved our time over there. We would absolutely recommend your services to anyone in the market! … Hopefully you can tell that we had a blast on our trip. We’ve been raving about it since we got back. Really, pretty much no major hiccups. Thank you again for all your help making this trip happen!"

–Woodhouse-Allard Family Italy & France Trip

"I will never plan an international trip without Kristen’s and Ciao Bambino’s help. She took the time to ask lots of questions and knew what was important to us and the trip aligned with that perfectly! She was able to talk me through traveling with a young child and a teenager and planned things that they could both enjoy on the trip, which isn’t easy. It was worth every penny for the peace of mind that I had and knowing that everything I needed was in the itinerary app was key. I had no worries about having to schedule or coordinate anything. We spent two weeks together making memories that will last a lifetime!"

–Vinson Family Italy & UK Trip

"100% the most magical trip Matt and I could have ever imagined and can’t thank you enough for your help!!"

–Dzamba Family Trip

"We had a brilliant holiday and we loved both Tuscany and our accommodations. The booking process was very easy and Katie was very helpful. Overall we had the most memorable and happy holiday!"

–Chantler Family Italy Trip

"We had a wonderful time on our Mediterranean cruise and really enjoyed the time in Barcelona afterwards that our advisor helped us arrange. We were incredibly pleased with her during the booking process and with her recommendation on an excursion in Rome."

–Phillips Family Mediterranean Cruise

"I will always remember Ciao Bambino. Our advisor was wonderful to work with. I would recommend Ciao Bambino in a blink to others."

–Frus Family Trip

"We have only good things to say about our entire trip and the planning process. You are a dream to work with! I especially appreciated how you narrowed down my options for each decision, so I wouldn't be overwhelmed. I haven't worked with a travel agent before, but you really surpassed my expectations. We will call you first the next time we travel!"

–Caldeira Family Trip

"My trip was extraordinary. Linda was incredible to work with and I could not have been more pleased. Thankful!"

–Goodrich Family Trip

"I can't begin to express the gratitude we feel towards Linda and the amazing work she does at Ciao Bambino. My wife and I were fortunate to make her acquaintance as we were planning a 14-day trip to Italy. It was our first trip to the country, and I was uneasy about some of the logistics. About five minutes into our initial call with Linda her vast experience began to shine through. Whenever a question or concern came up during the planning process, or while we were on our trip, she would simply say, "Leave it with me", and came up with a brilliant suggestion. She truly provides an excellent service. Investing with Linda was the best decision we made, and we are excited to work with her again!"
