A custom family vacation or reunion in Italy is an ideal way to get back in touch with your loved ones while exploring one of the most vibrant countries in the world. As lives get busier and one-on-one time between parents, children, grandparents, and other family members become harder to come by, families begin to search for ways in which they can spend quality time together. Traveling is one of the best ways to help loved ones reconnect and bond because it fosters the need to be present and attentive. Visiting new and faraway lands begs us to focus on the sights, sounds, tastes, and feelings of foreign places. With so much to see, do, and experience, a family vacation to Italy promises incredible destinations and activities that will solidify the bonds of family and create lifelong memories.

Or for a more relaxed tour, have the family hop on bikes and take an easy ride to the local farmer’s market. And of course, there are the iconic monuments, historic sites, and astonishing museums that offer firsthand views of some of the world’s most revered pieces of art, architecture, and history.

TRAVELING WITH KIDS
Little bambini (kids) of all ages will enjoy their Italian adventure as much as the adults in the family. The bustling cities, the ancient ruins indicative of times gone by, and the vivid colors and life of Italy’s many amazing travel destinations will have little ones in awe. And all throughout the boot-shaped country are activities and sights that will keep children entertained and interested. Let us know that you’re traveling with kids and we’ll make sure that your custom itinerary has some special things scheduled that the whole family will appreciate.
In Florence, experience the Boboli Gardens, a spectacular open-air museum that seems straight out of a fairy tale. It features architecture made of greenery, wonderful plants, and amazing sculptures. Afterwards, take a ride on Repubblica Square’s fantastic carousel. In Venice, kids will have fun running through the hypnotizing maze garden in Villa Pisani or getting their own personal carnival masks made at one of Venice’s local shops. Entertainment parks such as Pinocchio Park in Collodi and Italia in Miniatura are perfect, fun destinations for children. For little adventurers, the Gladiator School in Rome will teach them how to be like the greatest fighters of ancient times. And after the day’s itinerary is over, everyone will love an ice-cold gelato – the creamy, frozen Italian answer to ice cream. Served widely throughout Italy from street carts, food trucks, and cafes, this treat will bring a smile to the faces of adults and children alike.
In addition to these exciting and fun activities, experiencing another culture at an early age – especially one as rich and historical as Italy – can help in the development of an appreciation for art, architecture, cooking, and history. While the children will think of their Italian vacation as just plain fun, the parents will appreciate that it is a cultural and historical education as well.
A country of family and togetherness, Italy sets the stage for incredible family reunions. No matter the size of your family, our team of Italian travel experts can make sure everyone gets exactly what they want out of their vacation. Whether getting together in the hills of Tuscany for a wine and culinary experience or traveling to the stunning Amalfi coast for a family beach getaway, your custom family reunion package promises to bring both close and extended family together for an incredible trip filled with connection, culture, and love.
Travelers don’t need to be Italian to enjoy all that Italy has to offer, but if your family ancestors happen to hail from Italy, nothing is more meaningful and exciting than getting to trace your Italian roots to where the history of your family first began. Imagine walking the same cobblestone streets as your great, great grandmother or visiting the home of relatives you’ve yet to meet. A family reunion of your Italian family in Italy is a once in a lifetime experience that would be treasured for years to come.
