Rome Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

Want to make the past come alive for your family in a kid-friendly way? A vacation to Rome is your best option. From gladiator lessons to virtual reality tours, Rome maximizes interest in its role in world history with lots of hands-on experiences for families. Gawk at the Sistine Chapel ceiling in the morning, and then play in the shadows of St. Peter’s Basilica in the afternoon. Food tours are popular, as are stops for gelato to energize everyone before you climb the steps of the Colosseum. After all that exploring, families can recharge at kid-friendly hotels in the city’s vibrant center, or retreat to resort-style properties on the outskirts for a more relaxing atmosphere away from the frenzy.

–Goodrich Family Trip

"Katie went above & beyond for our family. We had a spectacular trip. I appreciate how Katie understood our needs as a family and gave me realistic feedback. The places where we stayed were exactly what I was looking for. I valued Katie’s patience with me as I was building my trip and deciding what exactly we were looking for as a family. She was available for input whenever needed and I would definitely use her and Ciao Bambino again."

–Roberts Family Trip

"Thank you for all of your support and expert tips. Everything went seamlessly, all our activities were wonderful and working with you made all of the planning so easy for me as a working mum. All the activities Melissa chose were tailored to my children's likes and also had a great blend of education and great fun."

–Silva Family Trip

"I think we have put together a fabulous trip and I feel it is well balanced both for children and adults! I could never have had a better trip without your help. So thank you, Linda & Brendan."

–Saari Family Trip

"We returned from Italy 10 days ago and are still talking about the wonderful time we had! A two-week vacation with our three children was somewhat last minute, and there were concerns, with the timing and the current Covid situation, that it would be challenging. We could not have been more wrong. With the assistance of Linda from Ciao Bambino, our time in Siena, Rome, and Florence was seamless. Linda was a joy to work with on our itinerary. Determined to make it a great experience, she provided and scheduled several amazing tours and experiences. Our kids continue to reminisce about the tours of Pompeii and Rome as well as their favorite pasta dishes. We are eager to return. Thank you Linda for making 2021 so memorable!"
