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
"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!"

Coronavirus Update

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
