Here's our wish list....which European country would you choose?

Jump to last reply

We are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Europe within the next year, and having trouble choosing a country that will be ideal for both kids and adults. Our family visited Munich this past summer and absolutely loved it — in fact, a repeat trip to Bavaria is one possibility. But we'd also like to explore other options.

Here are some specs:

• We're a family of three - two adults and one child, who will be nearly 8 at the time we travel. Our son is an adventurous traveler and is very interested in history, particularly medieval history.

• We'll be using Delta miles, departing from Atlanta, and hoping to keep the flights as uncomplicated as possible. Direct would be ideal, but a single stop would be manageable.

• We are staying on Marriott points, so a Marriott property in our chosen location is a must.

• We'd prefer to be based in a city or town over a more remote destination, although splitting time between the city and country might work too.

• We'd like to use public transport as much as possible.

• Things that are important to us: safety, outdoor activities, pretty natural scenery, arts and culture, kid-friendly museums and activities (not theme parks though), friendly locals, good food

• Things that are not important: shopping, fine dining, luxury, nightlife

• We had initially looked at London, but have decided against it because of airline taxes and fees, limited choice of Marriott properties where we can use points, and other factors. We have also crossed Rome off the list. Anything else is fair game.

Thanks so much for any input you have!
