Which would you visit with 4 kids aged 3, 4, 6 and 8? We are going Dec 2016. I have 2 itineraries one starting with Venice the other Budapest. I can't decide which I want to go to? I can't work out a flowing itinerary to go to both.
I trip is based around the kids so we don't want to go to 1000 of museums.
HELP which would you choose????

Venice or Budapest

I don't know. To me, Europe is about history and that could be a bit boring for real small children.
My 2 older kids were 5 and 3 when we went to Ireland and they loved seeing old castles but they still just wanted to go to the playground every day and run around.

With kids I'd say Venice. (Although just for me id say Budapest!) Although bear in mind it is covered in bridges which makes a pram/stroller difficult if you're taking one!

Oh my two favourite places!!!
With kids I think I'd have to say Budapest. Venice is quite poorly lit when it gets dark and I'd just be a big ball of stress with the canals.

Yep, I would be inclined towards Budapest too. My 3 year old and lots and lots of unfenced water- noooo.

Budapest. It's a really beautiful place and I think a bit safer and easier (water, bridges) to navigate with kids.
We really loved Budapest and there would be plenty of things that would catch the kids attention even if they don't 'get' the history side of it.

Budapest. Let's be honest here, Venice is a small crowded island with the same mask, Venetian glass shop and cafe down each lane way. It gets dull fast. The pigeons in the square will entertain the kids. Go to Budapest, so much more to see and do with your little ones. Can you tell I hated Venice? Lol.

I think Venice is magical for kids! A bit more work, but it's not like the OP will have tiny toddlers. How old exactly will the 3 year old be? Like just 3 or 3.5-closer to 4? Because that would be the only one to worry about with bridges and water. Plus Venice has a beach/lido to play at (depending on what time of year you are there)

P.s ditch the kids and take me instead
