World Travel. Family Discovery.

Tauck Bridges’ family trip to Italy serves up a multi-course feast of history, art, scenery and culinary treats…it’s an unforgettable journey from Rome to the Amalfi Coast to savor together. 

When in Rome… go to gladiator school! Our family-friendly tour of Italy brings Roman history into focus as you visit ancient ruins, learn gladiator skills and wander underground catacombs. You’ll also tour the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel after hours. Pompeii reveals its mysteries as you walk its ancient streets and excavated buildings. And how sweet it is to see Sorrento, where you’ll take a pizza-making class on a family farm… hop aboard a high-speed ferry to the enchanting Isle of Capri for further exploration via convertible and funicular… and break for gelato!

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 date when 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!

Important Information

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey.

Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held.

From the initial pick up at the airport in Rome to the final cab ride to the airport in Naples the experience was a perfectly pleasant trip. Thanks to our tour guides and director we enjoyed up close and personal experiences at all of our destinations with just the right mix of explanation and free exploration opportunities!

Most Memorable Moment:

From the top of Capri to the refreshing beautiful Amalfi coast to the intimate evening tour of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican it is impossible to pick a favorite moment. And as much as we enjoyed the sights we also enjoyed the families that we traveled with. And our tour director was a friendly, good natured guide through it all!


I have taken tours before but this was my first Tauck tour. If this is representative of all Tauck tours we will never take anything else! Everything was planned perfectly. Accommodations and activities were first rate and well thought out. Perfect balance between amazing planned activities and family free time to customize. Scale of 1-10, 11!

Most Memorable Moment:

Hard question as there were so many. Tour of the Vatican after hours was incredible. Jet boat along the Amalfi Coastline was breathtaking, smaller boat tour of the sea caves was like a dream come true. Each experience was more captivating than the last. Our tour guide incredible and brought everything together. Top notch talent.
