Luxurious Family Vacations in Italy
We know that family vacations are a cherished time, full of enriching cultural activities that bring you ever closer together. From grandparents down through the little ones, we love putting together the perfect luxury vacation itinerary that will entice every generation.
Whether it’s exciting discoveries or creative tours and hands-on experiences, all will equally capture culture as well as adventure. Italy’s culture is the perfect backdrop for a family vacation, where history is woven into the fabric of daily life. Unique Italian site visits set the tone for an entertaining journey through the ages.
Luxury Travel with Children
Whatever your family’s unique interests, our travel designers can create the perfect luxury vacation with activities and experiences desirable for all age ranges. Visiting Italian cities is an interactive history lesson like none other, and we partner with expert guides who make the stories of old come alive.
Your children will delight in imagining epic scenes that once took place in Rome’s Colosseum. They can, quite literally, step into the shoes of heroic fighters at gladiator school, visit the ruins of Pompeii, and explore ancient Greek temples on the island of Sicily.
Whether the kids are scrambling around ruins, climbing rolling hills, or catching sunlit spray from a cascading fountain, Italy is sure to enchant them. And to fuel their fire, there is plenty of pasta, pizza, and gelato to go with – much to everyone’s delight. We guarantee your young ones will never ask “Are we done, yet?”
An unforgettable Italian experience can mean different things for different families. Both young and old can delight in the wonder of Italy with enriching activities such as:
- Family cooking classes where you learn to make (and indulge in) biscotti, pasta and pizza
- Navigating gondolas through the canals of Venice
- Glassmaking with a local artisan on the enchanting island of Murano
- Watercolor painting along Venice’s Grand River
- Hunting for treasures during a scavenger hunt through an Italian city
- Working with the finest leather in Florence and creating your own souvenir
- Becoming a Roman gladiator for a day
… and that’s just scratching the surface.
Luxury Family Hotels and Resorts
Italians do luxury very well with a dizzying array of high-end accommodation options. Fortunately for families, more than a few offer extraordinary experiences that are kid-friendly, and everyone can live La Dolce Vita.
Borgo Santo Pietro — The Tuscan countryside
The decadent ambiance of this property is a feast for the eyes, with stunning fabrics, fixtures and textures. Luckily for families, the vast children’s playground resides in an outdoor space tailor-made for fun and frolicking. With an experience tailored toward each guest, this is more like a luxury villa than a hotel.
Appia Antica Resort — Rome
If it’s a warm and cozy villa close to Rome’s amazing architecture you crave, look no further than this luxury resort. The villas are located in the ample greenery of one of the world’s largest archaeological parks. The Appia Antica is more like a luxury apartment than a stuffy hotel — with all of the amenities available at your fingertips. Your family will feel at home instantly. It’s a little ways outside the city center, however, if you’d like to “live like a local,” this is a great option.
Hotel Londra Palace — Venice
This Relais & Chateaux gem’s location on the lagoon of the Grand Canal is superb for easy sightseeing with kids of all ages. St. Mark’s Square as well as vaporetto stops and gondolas for hire are just steps away. The water views from numerous connecting rooms are outstanding, as is the friendly service and exceptional concierge staff.
Spending quality family time together is important, and your itinerary can be tailored to include the perfect mix of activities, excursions, free time and luxurious accommodations.
