Bavaria, welcome to the land of children, where everyone has at least three, between lakes and mountains, meadows full of cows and small characteristic villages where you can taste the delicious slices of cake or beer, but only for mum and dad.
You will rediscover the sense of family and being together, of simple and genuine things.
Don’t forget Legoland, Freizeitpark, Ravensburger Park and Playmobil FunPark in Nuremberg. One week recommended. In Bavaria, the Jugendherberge family hostel network is an accommodation with the highest level of service and hospitality.
The Nuremberg hostel, for example, is located in the castle area and is well-kept, we slept in the tower on the eleventh floor!

Valencia, a city full of family attractions. The Bioparc, the Oceanografic, the Science Museum, the beach and the Albufera Park, the Turia Gardens. Impossible to get bored in Valencia, at least three days to fully enjoy the city.
To sleep in the center, the Hotel Ad Hoc Carmen was recommended to us by the local tourism organization.
4. Ibiza for families
Ibiza, the island that you have always imagined as a unique nightclub is also a top destination for families, family-friendly hotels, sandy beaches and hidden coves, a fortress worthy of big cities, rent a car to get to know the island, recommended at least a week.

To save some money you can sleep outside the park as we did, we had a good time in this hotel and we didn’t spend a fortune: Campanile Bussy Saint Georges.

Famous for its interesting museums and stunning cathedral, the Vatican has so much to offer! Among the main attractions, there are the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, while from Ottaviano – San Pietro – Vatican Museums and Cipro metro station you can reach other places of interest in the city.
The journey will begin in the legendary Vatican Museums, treasures of unrivaled beauty in the world.

From the simple ride on the double-decker to the numerous interactive and free museums such as the British Museum or Natural History, it is a great capital that knows how to be appreciated even by young visitors.
In London, we slept in different places every time but we had a great time at the Premier Inn Tower Bridge!
9. The mountain for families
Andalo, Trentino, Italy. A true paradise for the family, a place surrounded by greenery and nature, the real mountain with the alpine pastures and the paths downstream suitable also for strollers.
