The thought of a family city break may fill you with dread: how
to find restaurants with food the children won't turn their noses
up at, site-seeing that won't make them grumble, and hotels that
will suit all of you? Well, that's where we come in. Our regional
experts know the places that will go down well with the children
(as well as the ones that won't…), while making sure you get a
proper break too. We're also on hand to add a healthy dollop of
education to any of these family city breaks, ideally done in a way
that will see the children laughing and learning at the same time.
And with many parents in the Original Travel team we know a thing
or two about how to make all this happen.
So where works best? Rome
might just be our favourite city in Europe so it's even more
brilliant that is also works for families. And any country that
predominantly serves pizza, pasta and ice cream is bound to go down
well with children. So even if they turn their noses up at
sight-seeing, remember that sampling the local cuisine is just as
much a part of the cultural immersion of visiting a new city as a
museum can be.
Other family-friendly European gems include Lisbon,
Stockholm and (of course)
Marrakech in Morocco a slightly further flung but no less
captivating family gem.
