Holiday trip with kids - suggestions please!

Jump to last reply

We are floating around the idea of a Europe trip next thanksgiving (2017). The kids will be 8 (girl) and almost 12 (boy). They haven't been overseas before, and we are thinking this may be a good time to do a short trip to get their feet wet and fits in well with our time off from work / school. We have had the Europe itch for a while now, I haven't been since my older child was born. Hubby goes often for work.

Thoughts? Suggestions? together my husband and I have been to France, Germany (Bavaria) and London. I've also been all over Italy. I would love to see something new but also completely ok with repeating and enjoying with the others for their first trip.

My thoughts - I love Rome and it would be relatively warm (compared to , say, Munich and the alps). But not sure the kids would really dig it. The food would be a hit but would they care too much about the Vatican, Sistine chapel, all the sights that adults care about? Venice I think they would love - but only for a couple of nights. Worth it to do 3 nights Rome and 2 Venice?

Germany / Bavaria - I have always thought they would love it there with the castles and mountains and hiking. It could be very cold though and that may be limiting to those activities. But the Christmas markets would be in full force which may be a fun thing to do...

Prague?? My husband's family is czech and none of us have been... maybe a connection to family history... again maybe cold...

Ok enough rambling. Any suggestions for Europe at that time and with kids ?
