offer for a family but capital cities and other local areas can be just as fun, with plenty to do and many places
to go. Here’s a countdown of some of the best European destinations where you can cherish moments together as a

An extremely chilled atmosphere, Barcelona is a great place for both parents and children. You get the fine
balance of taking in the city sites whilst having the option to travel to the beach when the urban lifestyle gets
just a bit too much. The weather’s consistently top-notch with the sun rays peeking through the traditional, high
rise buildings and the food is up there with some of the finest dishes you’re ever going to taste. A couple of
Barcelona’s tourist attractions includes the Sagrada Familia church and the Port Aventura theme park when you’re looking to go a bit wild.

Extremely multicultural, London is home to the royal family. It really has everything to offer for an enjoyable
experience as a family. There’s plenty of shops and tourist attractions perfectly suited for young children.
Legoland is a prime location if you’re wanting to keep the kids occupied or maybe they’re Harry Potter fans. In
which case you can head down to the Warner Brother Studios to tour some of the famous places from the book. With so
much to do, who knows, you might even think about applying for UK visa to have a longer stay in England.

"must-do" things when in Amsterdam. (Image by Pixabay.com)
You may have had a wilder experience if you ever visited Amsterdam before you had the kids, but luckily there’s
more to it than just the Red Light District. In fact, it’s a
perfect place for children where you can jump onto the canal tours or visit the local zoos to see some wildlife.
There’s also the added bonus of not needing to know the language too, with many residents in Holland speaking
English. Maybe even better than yourself!

Commonly known as a more romantic European city, it may surprise you
just how good Paris is to visit after the marriage. There’s plenty of culture dotted around the streets of Paris
making them easily accessible for the children to see and enjoy. The Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dam de Paris are easy
to walk to from each other and when you’ve taken in all the tourist attractions there are more activities to do for
the family like cruises or of course Disneyland.

you and the children. Malta boats the famous town of Mellieha which was crowned a destination of excellence by the European Commission for the tourism it has to offer. You
can also enjoy visiting Popeye village where the musical production of Popeye was filmed.
Feel like that's whetted your appetite? Consider these destinations next time you plan to go on holiday in the
Summer and it’ll be sure to be a family holiday that’s kept in the memories for a long time.
