Family trips: 10 places to visit in Europe
Organize family trips Sometimes it is hard work: we must also take into account the interests of children, and therefore it is best to choose cities that offer both culture and fun, as well as assess other factors that interest us (such as the quality of restaurants, of course). Still, there are Many places to visit in Europe when you want to travel as a family.
Although each family may have their own preferences, which are usually based on previous experiences (if you liked a city, maybe you want to return or you prefer to visit others to expand the world), the lists of favorite places by others can help us when we doubt about destinations to choose. Therefore, here we bring a small selection of European cities perfect for family travel.
10 places to visit in Europe with the family

The difficult thing is that your children are not impressed when they see the Colosseum or discover the church of Santa Maria della Concezione, decorated with bones ... if you decide to go in summer, the Italian ice creams will not disappoint you.
4. Barcelona (Spain)
In most travel websites, Barcelona is another of the European cities that appear as a favorite destination for families. Your children will enjoy as much as you watching the "weird" design of Parc Güell and the Sagrada Familia, and finding incredible fish in the city's aquarium.

An opportunity to escape from the cold are the Canary Islands, which with their sandy beaches and their resorts for families become an ideal destination.

How about a visit to the hometown of one of the greats of classical music, Mozart? Salzburg will impress parents and children with its incredible castle that even has canyons and dungeons; its famous zoo and the labyrinth of the Mirabelle Gardens.
