We are heading to Europe with 4 kids (aged 13, 10, 8 and 6) for 6 weeks in March/April. There are so many spectacular buildings, churches and art galleries but I can see too much emphasis on this being our downfall. What are people's experience of kids in art galleries, Vatican, churches etc? How much is too much? Others' experiences, kids' feedback, any suggestions for ways of approaching it? My partner is good at inventing games (e.g. find the Madonna that looks the most like Mum!) and they are bright, enthusiastic kids. But the truth is they are mostly not that crazy about art and old buildings. BTW we are going -among other places-to London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice. (Also Wales, Brittany, Flanders, Belgium, Switzerland, Umbria, Russia). One idea I've used is that each family member gets to choose 1 destination (hence Russia, thanks husband!), CERN (Geneva), Dr Who museum(Cardiff), snow(Bernese Oberland) and coliseum!
Any thoughts on monuments, churches, Vatican and art galleries with kids
