Adults can take an exhilarating hike to Mount Etna, the most active and largest volcano in Europe today. Your trip will not be complete without gorging on the famed cannoli (Italian pastries shaped like tubes, with all kinds of different filling)

 

  • Seville, Spain reverberates with colour and has a rich cultural heritage that leaves its visitors enthralled and energized. Feel like royalty when you visit the Real Alcázar Palace, developed earlier by the Moorish Muslim kings, or get transported back in time visiting the age-old neighbourhood of Barrio Santa Cruz – its meandering paths and city squares smell beautifully fresh given the orange trees that line this part of the city. Treat your taste buds to the Italian delicacy – Tapas – that are inexpensive and in portions suitable for your kids.

Berlin is amongst the top places to travel with kids since there is a significant rise in kinder cafes – stylish eating-places with menus designed for kids, special play areas housing toys, games, and other things to keep the young ones busy.

 

  • A city brimming with colour and vibrancy, and a culture that is friendly for kids, Barcelona, Spain, is a great place for a family vacation. The most famous street in this city is La Rambla.
