    Default Where have you been in Europe with your child/children?

    We're thinking of heading to Europe next year with my Dad. We will be going in their late summer/early autumn starting in the Netherlands (mostly staying in Amsterdam) for at least 2 weeks (visiting people). After that we're pretty much free to go anywhere for another 2 weeks.

    Where have you been in Europe with your child/children? What did you do? Was it child friendly? Affordable?

    I pretty much want to go everywhere and stay for a lot longer...but that so is not possible...

    I should add, what have you done in Europe without children too, as my Dad will be able to look after DD a fair bit.

    Only be half jealous...2 weeks with a close family friend of my Dad's, I've never met...I don't know if that will be a blast...

    Therefore the rest of it must be awesome.

    Subscribing.

    I'm heading over next year, so i'm interested too. We are spending a lot of time in Italy, as that's where my BIL is from...he said they are very child-friendly, except they lack a lot of children's facilities around the place (change rooms/high chairs etc). We're not too bothered though, we will make do.

    I'm interested to see other feedback, as we are travelling to other countries as well.

    Italy is on my list of places a desperately want to go to. I'm almost obsessed with going to Italy. The food, the art, the history...amazing...Luckily DD will be 4.5 when we want to go so lack of facilities won't be an issue for us.

    I'm really worried she is going to be terribly bored around me wherever we go, all I want to do is go to different galleries, museums and take photos of churches...boring...

    Ireland, and I think it was really only affordable because we stayed with my partner's parents and didn't have to worry about accommodation costs.

    We didn't really go for the benefit of the kids. I think once they're older, it will be good, but they won't remember much at this age.

    We went to the Netherlands when our son turned 1 to meet family. We were going to go to Rome but we couldn't afford it. It was great for our son even when we weren't spending time with family we had plenty to do.
