Want to soak up a little culture during your children’s spring break? Spend the week in Rome learning about how their legacy has influenced Western civilization.

How about a visit to the cultural, religious, and political center of Rome?

There are tours that will bring the place back to life as the guides explain what life was like for the average citizen. And no trip to Rome would be complete without seeing Vatican City and their museums. Even if you are not an art history major, you cannot help but stare in wonder at all the works of art by some of the art world’s greatest creators. See Michelangelo’s famed frescoed ceiling in the Sistine chapel, and marvel at Raphael’s Rooms, as well as other exquisite works. . A week in Rome will be an experience you and your children will never forget.
Summer holidays are great when you want to go to Italy. The beaches are fantastic and there are so many things to do, from outdoor concerts and operas to fun family plays. There are a variety of summer festivals in many of the cities. This is the perfect time of year to explore Italy’s islands. Sicily is unarguably one of the most stunning destinations in Europe. When we think of cuisine from here, we are probably thinking of traditional Sicilian cooking. The island itself is a melting pot of several ancient civilizations. One of the coolest things to do in Sicily is to explore the volcanoes. Sicily is home to Mount Etna – the highest volcano in Europe. There are tours that can take you to the summit (weather and volcanic activity permitting). From Sicily, you can also travel and visit the Aeolian Archipelago and visit Vulcano and Stromboli. There are therapeutic hot springs on Vulcano that Romans believed could cure all that ails you. Once done ascending the volcanoes, take a few days to relax on the beautiful Sicilian beaches. There are also castles, palaces, and churches that must be visited! Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, you can find it on Sicily.
