What Is It Like Traveling In Europe With Kids?

Europe is the most popular destination for families in our Family Travel Support Group on Facebook. In fact, only North America competes with Europe for popularity among international family travel destinations.

Countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy tend to be among the most popular destinations. However, over the past 20 years, a number of European destinations such as Croatia, Romania, and Malta have risen up the ranks to compete with countries such as Portugal, Spain, and Austria for popularity.

European travel for families is as easy as it comes. While there are many languages and cultures spread across the continent, there is also an excellent road and rail network that connects nearly all of these countries. This makes travel in Europe relatively affordable and family friendly.

We’ve been traveling with kids for 10 years now, and Europe was the first continent outside of North America that we visited as a family. I’m sure that our tips and guides for the countries we have visited will help you plan your family travels on the European continent.
