Help with Family trip to Europe, starting in Sweden

Jump to last reply

Hello Everyone, our family (me, my wife, 15 yr old son and 13 yr old daughter) is travelling to Gothenburg Sweden in mid July this year (from the Baltimore area), since my son's soccer team is playing in the Gothia Cup. After 10 days in Sweden for the cup, we'd like to spend another week and a half visiting other parts of Europe. Although I've been to Paris, London and parts of Italy many years ago, I'm open to any itinerary that is family friendly and reasonable.

I'd appreciate anyone's suggestions on how many cities we should visit, as well as what places would make sense to travel to, coming from Sweden. I'm also not clear on whether we'd need to rent a car or if this trip can be done using the rail system.

Our family is a typical one with teenagers; we enjoy fun and active vacations; (exploring, zoos, amusements, beaches, etc) and are less likely to spend alot of time in museums or bus tours. We'd like to keep the cost down if possible as well, while still having decent accommodations.

Any guidance would be much appreciated! If I can provide more info, please let me know.

Thank you
