Need help planning multi-generational trip to European city

Jump to last reply

We are hoping to be able to make a trip to Europe next summer with our extended family (kids and grandkids) -- 12 people total ranging in age from 8 to 66. Our plan would be to pick one European city and stay there for a week. We are thinking that a city would work best since we could use public transportation (avoiding multiple car rentals), and a city would provide lots of activities for all age groups. We were kicking around some ideas, and then I thought maybe the Fodorites could help!

We would love to have some ideas on which European city would be a good choice. And also suggestions on accomodations. Renting a house would be ideal, but I doubt that is feasible in a city. A couple apartments in the same building might work or maybe a B & B or small hotel with rooms for all (5 rooms). We would want to have some kind of common area where we could be together. The ability to cook is not essential, but we would need a refrigerator and some kind of dining table where we could eat things like takeaway pizza together.

Any suggestions are much appreciated! If anyone has done something like this, we would love to hear from you (and find out how you managed it). Thanks!
