How much do you love spring? Me, a lot. I mean, I love every season, but spring is when I finally wake up from the lethargy and I can go wondering around Europe! Nothing better to stroll among beautiful cities and countryside and enjoying the spring sun. What are the best European cities for kids to go in this period? Follow me in this amazing, mediterranean journey. TAPSYlicious!


No place is better than the mediterranean area to enjoy spring sun! Southern Italy is definitely the place to be. Not as crowded as summer, spring here is a great chance for families with kids to enjoy a bit of real local life. A cry you can’t miss: Polignano a mare! This astonishing place is a real Apulian corner. Placed on a huge cliff, Polignano is a great spot for families. The city centre is almost completely car free so kids can stroll around without any problem. The main beach of Polignano is located just outside the city centre and offers a great view of the city, up to the rock in front of the beautiful Adriatic sea. Top thing to do: go for an excursion along the sea caves and secret beaches, don’t forget to bring a picnic set with some delicious local fish sandwiches!
