Finding the perfect place for a family holiday can be tricky. No matter how incredible you think Stonehenge is or the Leaning Tower of Pisa, to your kids, they are a bunch of old rocks and a really old building.
While the adult want to visit galleries, museums, and historical sites, your kids are less keen on these activities. Years in the future, all of the art, culture and history they experience will feel like a gift, however in the moment, you’ll have to field a barrage of “when can we leave” questions.
It can be difficult to find a compromise that makes both parents and children happy, but it’s not entirely impossible. For example, to an adult, Italy is an incredibly scenic country seething in a legacy of art and history. To a child, Italy is a place that has amazing ice-cream and the best hot chocolate they have ever had. Do you see that we are getting at here? A win-win for everyone.
Additionally, your accommodations can make or break the vacation, so choose wisely. Since it can be difficult to find kid-friendly places, we’ve found the most magically treehouse accommodations your kids will absolutely love.
