Top 6 Family-Friendly Destinations in Europe:
The Illa Fantasia water park has over 20 different water slides and 3 large swimming pools - plenty of water to cool off even the sunniest day in Barcelona. The park has water activities for any age group including the tiny tots. For the little ones the park has the "Splash n Slide" activities that are safe for the younger members of your family. Learn more about this awesome park HERE.
Venice has some really good beaches facing the Adriatic Sea. The beaches in Lido are particularly wonderful with golden sand and lots of play areas for kids to jump around. There are nice beach clubs in Lido that let you rent deckchairs and umbrellas. You can also have lunch/dinner at the beach. See what other families have to say about Lido Beach HERE.
The Potter Trail is sure to please your kids and any Harry Potter fan. Grab a wand and join your robed guide on the original tour of Edinburgh designed especially for Potter fans!
You’ll discover the magical locations that inspired characters and scenes in the series, visit the places where JK Rowling wrote the books, and even learn a spell or two along the way. Check out this awesome experience HERE.
One of the best children’s museums anywhere, Cite des Enfants in the City of Science and Industry offers hands-on learning for kids ages 2-12. You can spend an entire day at this location and still not see and experience everything. Take a look at everything this museum has to offer HERE.
The best way to experience the wonders of the canals of Amsterdam is by a taking a boat tour. The beautiful and unique canal houses can be best admired from the water and you’ll save your little one’s feet from getting tired. See all the different boat tours that you can take with your family HERE.
the Butterfly House is a must see in Vienna if you have kids. The butterflies really are both plentiful and beautiful. And it’s a small hothouse, so won’t take long to get round. The building (a Jugendstil palm house) lies right next to some of the main sightseeing spots, so you can use it to keep the kids happy between palaces and paintings. Check out this destination HERE.
Touring Europe is doable with kids, and if you plan some family-friendly excursions, you might find the great continent to be one you will want to return to in the future...even with kids.
