Rome... the Isle of Capri... the Amalfi Coast... an Italy family vacation package that provides memories of a lifetime long after you return home.

World Travel. Family Discovery.

Tauck Bridges' Italy family vacation offers so much to enjoy together in the sunny south of Italy, you'll never want it to end... a journey from Rome to the Amalfi Coast that is truly the sweet life, indeed...

Explore the Colosseum, where you can say ciao to a Roman Centurion, and Rome's ancient underground catacombs, where you'll learn all about a "secret language"... pick up some "combat skills" at gladiator school... and find out what could happen when you make a wish and throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain! Pompeii reveals its mysteries as you walk among its ancient stone streets and excavated buildings. Sweet Sorrento is the gateway to both the fabled Amalfi Coast and the enchanted Isle of Capri. Drive along a road that twists and turns like a roller coaster on the Amalfi Coast and ride a jet boat to Capri. Learn to make authentic pizza in Sorrento, savor gelato and try your hand at making paper!

Tauck Exclusive – After-hours at the Vatican Museums with your family

Day 2

Exploring the Vatican Museums with your family – and no crowds

Founded by Pope Julius II in the early 1500s, the Vatican Museums display classical and religious works of art collected by the Popes throughout the centuries. Combined with the Sistine Chapel, they’re visited by around six million people a year, ranking among the most-visited art museums in the world. On your Tauck Bridges Exclusive, after-hours, guided visit, you and your family can explore the Candelabra Gallery, the Map Gallery, the Tapestries, and the Sistine Chapel… all without the usual crowds. So you’ll be able to take your time to contemplate the inspirational treasures before you – including the spectacular Biblical frescoes on the ceiling, which took Michelangelo four years to paint, standing on a scaffold... and changed the course of western art.

Ancient Pompeii... frozen in time

Day 4

Back to 1st Century Pompeii

Pompeii was a prosperous Roman city with a population of approximately 27,000 souls until August 24, 79 AD – the fateful day that Mount Vesuvius erupted and completely buried it and its inhabitants under a blanket of volcanic ash. And there it sat until its discovery by an architect more than 1,500 years later. It would be another 150 years before some of the world’s earliest archaeologists began excavating the site in the 1740s, slowly revealing a city frozen in time. Today, as you walk with a local guide among the remains of Pompeii's buildings and streets – still an active archaeological site – you’ll get a firsthand glimpse of what life might have been like in the Roman Empire during the 1st century AD.

Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa

Days 1, 2 and 3

An urban resort in Rome's heart

At Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa, you and your family will be enveloped in elegance and inspired by beauty throughout your stay. Set in the heart of Rome just a short walk from Via Veneto, this luxurious grand hotel is surrounded by botanical gardens with a gorgeous view overlooking Villa Borghese park. Over the years, it has hosted the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, actors like Woody Allen and Anthony Hopkins, and many other celebrities, sports legends and world leaders. But its commitment is to treat each and every guest – including you and your family – like a star, a king, or a queen. The Eternal City offers incredible experiences that are even more delightful when shared with loved ones. And there is no more ideal place from which to enjoy Rome's unforgettable moments with those you love the most than Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa.

I think it was a special family vacation because they had a lot of activities for us to do together!
