Italian Triumvirate. A Firsthand Family Look at Italy's Greatest Cities.

The way to a kid’s heart is through his or her stomach. Which is why, on a jaunt through the best of Italy, we’ve planned a pasta-making lesson, a pizza-making lesson, a gelato stop. Between bites, there’s time at some of the highlights in Venice, Florence, Rome, and beyond. Get inside a gondola workshop. Learn the gladiator’s art of battle during an afternoon of training (staged battle to follow). Create your own Carnevale masks. And much, much more.

     Your children will thank you.
