England, France or Spain in August with teens and tweens

Jump to last reply

We are doing a Mediterranean Cruise In August 2015. Our cruise leaves and returns from Barcelona. We are traveling from southern California with 2 children ages 13 and 10. We have never been to Europe. The week before our cruise, we wanted to spend a week in London, Paris or Madrid/Barcelona. I think we could go to a couple of countries in a week but I do not want to be rushed or exhausted. We cannot decide which destination is preferable, especially with kids. We have travelled fairly extensively but mostly to beach destinations. I want my children to experience the culture of some of world's great cities and their people and surroundings. I have to admit that we are not huge museum aficionados but we certainly would not pass up the Louvre if we were in Paris. I am just looking for a City that is fun and engaging for the entire family. Good restaurants, unique shopping, nearby hiking, rummaging through books stores, having a picnic, are all things we enjoy. Thanks in advance for any advice.
