THE BEST FAMILY HOLIDAY DESTINATIONS IN EUROPE: BARCELONA
Spain is like always a safe choice: cheap, sunny, good food, lots of things to do with kids!
When in Barcelona, it is easy to know what to do: first of all, a Tapsy Tour of the city with me! Let’s go for a dragon hunting through one of the most iconic local spots: the Barrio Gotico. Children will learn everything about old traditions, mysteries, legends and Catalan culture here. After that, your Spanish spring break can’t miss all the other local highlights. Gaudì’s buildings are such an experience for both adults and children, with all their colors and strange architecture! The weather is usually quite good, so why don’t go on the beach? If you go in April, don’t miss the celebration for Sant Jordi, patron of the city, one of the best way to know more about local culture!
THE BEST FAMILY HOLIDAY DESTINATIONS IN EUROPE: AMSTERDAM
Rent some bikes here and get ready to stroll around canals and lovely little squares, all around the most cycling European city! Amsterdam is becoming such a kid-friendly city! It is quite small, compared to other European capitals, but it’s so full of culture and attractions that you and your children will absolutely love it. On the top list, one square and 3 museums! The Museumplein hosts the main museums of the city: the Van Gogh Museum, The Stedelijk and the Rijksmuseum, where you can find aaaall the classic, modern and contemporary art Amsterdam can offer. At Van Gogh’s and Stedelijk children will have the time of their life discovering the most iconic Dutch painter and some of the best masterpieces of modern art! Enjoy the ride!
THE BEST FAMILY HOLIDAY DESTINATIONS IN EUROPE: NAPLES
Ah, Italy and its most Italian city, Naples! Chaotic? Maybe. Best Italian food? Most probably. Amazing time for children? Suuuuure! The perfect Neapolitan family spring break includes a day trip out of town with me. Where? To the beautiful Pompeii! A Tapsy Tour of this ancient, marvelous city will show kids how romans used to live before Vesuvius destroyed everything.
Get back to Naples, then, time to enjoy the real pizza with your children! Try one of these.
A good way to digest is going for museums and monuments! Don’t miss a visit to the Maschio Angioino, the Palazzo Reale, and to the MADRE, the museum of modern art!
