Families vacation in Philadelphia primarily for the history that can be found here, given its strong connection with the founding of America. But they return again and again for the countless other kid-friendly activities. You’ll want to tick Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross’s house off the list, then run around Franklin Square to burn off energy (or even up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, like Rocky did). Many of the historical sites have costumed actors to make the fascinating stories come alive for children. And don’t forget to sample the famous cheesesteaks and decide as a family which is the best. Whether you prefer intimate boutique hotels or luxurious icons, Philadelphia has both, and many offer kid-friendly amenities like activity packs and bedtime treats.

Our Happy Travelers
“I have been blown away with the services you provide. I first contacted Barbara last summer on a recommendation to Ciao Bambino from a friend. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had not used this type of service before. We were beyond impressed with everything Barbara set up for our family.”

–Detter Family Trip

"I couldn't be happier with my experience. Just talking with Cary gave me a baseline foundation to build on - one that I didn't have time to get from reading a guidebook and distilling it. I am not sure how I would have gotten this trip together without her help. I will definitely get in touch before our next trip!"

–Marks Family Trip

"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 are 120% happy with our vacation and the kids are comparing it to our Bali vacation which has been our benchmark!"

–Schmidt 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."
