Will young kids have fun traveling to Europe?

I'm already thinking about next year's summer vacation. I have never been to Europe and would really like to go this summer. Are my kids too young to go? Does anyone know of any good tours that are little kid friendly?

  • Well Europe is a pretty big place, can you narrow it down to a country?

    I can tell you that if you are anywhere near the British Midlands, the Cadbury's chocolate factory in Birmingham is a great day out for the kids.  So is Warwick Castle in Warwick and Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, although your kids may be a bit young for that one.

  • i love europe but i don't think it would be much fun for either age. i was in london and thats really cool but the train stations are quite packed and sometimes i was confused. another time the trained we needed wasn't running. lots of sight seeing or go through a tour of haunted places. although i missed out on that tour. bu tour and checked out the castles. i think my boys the ages of 13-16 would enjoy but your kids age not so much. how about a cruise? you have swimming, tours off the islands, games, dancing, shows etc. super fun.

  • we just returned from paris with our 18 month old. it was very easy on us actually. europe can be very expensive. museams can be very boring, we were in the louvre and my son just tried to make every room echo. the metro is really nice we took it the last day we were there, and were hitting ourselves saying why didnt we do this the whole time! there were entertainers on the metro one did puppets another played the ochordian and put him to sleep, it was nice. you can find zoos and fun shops that kids like to go to. but things that adults want to see will most likely just annoy them. for instance, the eiffel tower, way too many lines for kids. europeans love kids and babies as long as they are well behaved. i hope you go, it will be the trip of a lifetime!
