Which city, couple cities to visit with 3 children 1 1/2 to 7, for a week?

Jump to last reply

I have read several threads on the forum, all informative. We are committed to travel from US to Europe next summer for 2 weeks. One week travelling as family of 5 (ages 1 1/2 to 7 1/2) and wife and I, second week in a villa somewhere in Italy with friends living in Europe for a few years. I'll acknowledge travel with 3 young children will be complex, and they won't "remember anything", but we plan to visit 2 cities, likely with a couple day trips outside those cities. We're hoping this begins their learning to be citizens of the world.

Any suggestions about which cities would have interesting sites for young children, where we can have an engaged time? We thought London, for example, where the kids would love to see Buckingham, Windsor castles, go through mazes, do a double-decker bus, etc. Paris is kind of the easy answer for other city, but we're thinking someplace less, um, typical (not Paris, Rome, Madrid). We were wondering about Munich with day trip to Salzburg, or maybe Prague or Vienna. A bit concerned about food choices in Prague, Vienna for young, sometimes picky-eating kids.
