Europe Destination with kids?

Jump to last reply

Hello. I'm looking to travel somewhere in Europe with my kids (9 year old twins) in March 2017. Last year, we went to Paris, Bruges and Amsterdam, and they had a blast!

This time, I'm considering either Italy or Spain, but I'd be open to other opinions as well. I realize that neither place will be balmy beach weather in March, and I'm ok with that since it's the only time that we have to travel next year.

We will have around 9-10 days on the ground, and I'd like to split time between exploring cities and visiting smaller and more quaint areas.

One idea would be to do Venice, Rome and somewhere on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

Another idea I've looked into is Barcelona, Granada and maybe one more side trip in Spain. I would also consider something in the South of France to add to Barcelona if that's recommended.

We would fly open jaw in order to maximize our time and be able to see 2-3 destinations. We would love to use trains for all transport or non-stop quick flights. I don't want to deal with renting a car. We would likely stay in vacation rentals in a neighborhood area to try to get the 'local feel'.

My kids love seeing anything new and different, and they actually like history and museums. That said, they also loved being in a place like Amsterdam where we could bike everywhere and stay in a houseboat. Anything that feels different than home and is unique is a real plus. Budget isn't a big concern.

OK - I know that's a lot of info. Any ideas on whether the Italy or Spain trip would be recommended and, if so, what locations, especially in Spain?
