Why you'll love this trip
  • History class has never been this immersive. Explore the town frozen in time with a day and night in Pompeii, including a short hike to the summit of the volcanic Mt Vesuvius.
  • Italy is the perfect place for a family holiday. The famously laid-back atmosphere of sun-drenched southern coast is the perfect place to relax and spend some quality time together.
  • Learn the art of southern Italian pizza at a family-run agriturismo, then enjoy a glass of wine while the kids explore the farm full of friendly wild-rabbits.
  • Cruise across the Bay of Naples to Capri – a holiday destination favoured by the Roman emperors. With its glistening grottoes and little white houses with flower-filled gardens, it’s easy to see why.
  • Let your expert leader take the hassle out of family travel as they guide you through the history and highlights of Italy, so relax and hand over the responsibility – you deserve it.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll learn about our Intrepid Foundation partner, Cooperativa Coraggio. Donations help them regenerate 22 hectares of unused public land to create local jobs and produce organic food in Italy. Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

Is this trip right for you?
  • As there are potholes and cobblestones in many European cities, it's recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead. As this is an eight-day trip, a large backpack should be enough to carry all of your belongings.
  • Italy is steeped in majestic old buildings, and often there are no lifts or escalators, particularly in some train stations or hotels. You may have to carry your bags up and down stairs, but the trek will be worth it.
  • Don’t let the heat keep you from exploring the world! Summer temperatures can be very high in Italy (over 40°C), which can make things uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
  • Make sure you pack some sturdy and comfortable shoes as there can be a lot of walking around the towns, ruins, and walking trails of this area.

Great family trip. Highly recommend if traveling with kids who are not rambunctious. Trip offered time to spend and socialize with other families who also enjoy traveling and created a pleasurable experience with people from around the globe.

This was a fantastic, well organised trip to see Italy with kids. Great balance of organised activities and free time with limited travelling time in between. Accomodation was basic but comfortable with breakfast included every day. The Capri boat tour (although an optional extra) was a highlight for the kids as they loved jumping off the boat!

Our best holiday in years! Sunshine, volcanoes, Roman ruins, swimming in blue seas, pizza, new friends and a helpful and knowledgable guide. Even our teenagers are telling everyone how good it was, which is probably the best recommendation you can get. Thanks Intrepid :)

Fabulous holiday, with a great mix of iconic tourist sites (Pompeii, Vesuvius) and much more hidden local Italian gems. My 3 kids (12, 15 and 18) loved it, and made good friends with other children on the tour. Wonderful, relaxed but organised tour leader. My first Intrepid trip, but very unlikely to be my last.

I highly recommend this family tour. We were sceptical of a tour in general, and this one surpassed our wildest dreams - we will definitely be doing another one next year. Having a calm and capable tour guide to manage all of the logistics meant that we could relax on holiday for the first time since our kids were born. The itinerary gave us access to people and experiences that were meaningful, authentic and local - we made memories for a lifetime. Finally, the true highlight of the trip was the community that we formed as a tour group, including our lovely leader Carlotta. Despite the big variances in the children's ages (from 7-16) and nationalities (5 countries), they somehow formed a pack early on, looked after each other, and played games and cards into the wee hours of each night - as we adults enjoyed drinks and discussions (Often at a separate table!) It was one of the best vacations I've ever had and I can't wait for our next Intrepid trip.
