Description

We know that travelling with children can be challenging without the proper planning. This is why we have designed a special itinerary that will be engaging for parents and fun for the kids.

From the moment we arrive in Florence, you'll learn all about the history of the city and it's most important monuments. Our first stop is the Palazzo Davanzati, the Museum of the old Florentine. This ancient palace displays many original artifacts and decorations from the XIV century. This intimate display will really give you a feel for how old the city is.

Continuing on we'll stop by Piazza della Signoria, home of Palazzo Vecchio, and Ponte Vecchio, the famous 14th century bridge -- home of Florence's gold shops. Scenery aside, this one of Florence's most famous landmarks. While here your guide will point out the many beautiful statues that fill the square.

Next up is Dante's District where we will see the beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and also Brunelleschi's Dome.

Throughout the day we will stop for a slice of pizza and also gelato from a local favorite eatery.

If you chose, we have the option to pre-book the Accademia giving you the option to skip-the-line and make the most of your day. Remember that our tours are custom; while we're happy to provide a framework based on the most requested highlights, we specialize in tailoring itineraries to include other places of your choosing (time permitting). We have found these suggested stops to be family friendly.

Our last stop will be at Pisa's "Field of Miracles" where you will find the Duomo (cathedral), Baptistery, Campo Santo (cemetery) and, of course, Campanile, better known as the Torre Pendente — the Leaning Tower. Make sure to bring your camera!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
