This private tour of Italy is ideal for families wanting an enjoyable, educational and bonding experience in one of the world’s best family destinations. It features Italy’s most compelling destinations, cultural highlights sure to amaze and inspire every family member, family-friendly activities, and ample free time to enjoy relaxing together at some of Italy’s greatest hotels and resorts.
Begin with three nights in Rome at the Eternal City’s best luxury hotel for families. During private touring customized to your family’s interests, explore highlights such as the Roman and Imperial Forums, the Colosseum, Pantheon, Vatican City, Saint Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel, Via Veneto, morning fruit and flower market of Campo dei Fiori, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Jewish Quarter, Villa Borghese, ruins along the Appian Way, Aventine Hill, catacombs and "Underground Rome." Also, enjoy family-friendly activities such as a school where children can train to be gladiators. During free time, explore Rome’s excellent restaurants and boutiques.
Next, transfer to Florence. En route, tour Siena and other select destinations in beautiful Tuscany. Stay three nights in Florence at the Four Seasons Resort, where the expansive grounds and lovely pool are perfect for children. During your private city touring, experience the wonders of Florence according to your interests. Some of our favorite activities include touring the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery, exploring artisans' districts and local markets, and visiting the beautiful Boboli Gardens.
One day, take a private excursion from Florence to Pisa and Lucca. In Pisa, tour the spectacular Piazza dei Miracoli to see the famous Leaning Tower, the Duomo and the Baptistery. In Lucca, walk along the top of the city walls, explore the medieval back streets, and perhaps sample the celebrated local olive oil.
Conclude with three nights at one of our favorite spots for families: Villa d'Este, located on the verdant shores of Lake Como. Built in 1568 as a private residence, this neoclassical villa is one of Europe
most acclaimed luxury hotels in Europe. While there, enjoy a private boat
excursion to Bellagio, one of Europe's most picturesque towns, to explore the
beautiful backstreets and exquisite gardens. Another day, enjoy a flexible tour
of the region. Options include visits to numerous historic estates and
aristocratic villas to view their splendidly landscaped gardens; driving across
the border into nearby Switzerland to spend time in charming Lugano or the
designer shopping outlets; or a memorable lunch on Isola Comacina—the only island in Lake Como. During free time, enjoy the resort's legendary pool that floats on the lake (there is also a separate children's pool), tennis, water activities, the excellent kids club, and walks through the hotel's gardens.
