A Guide to Family Holidays in Europe
Many of us love to travel, but for those of us with families, things tend to get a little rough. However, many will be pleased to know that Europe is very family friendly and there are many places to take the kids and you for a relaxing much deserved holiday.

For starters, Paris sounds like an ideal place. Many people associate this place with lovers and couples only, but Paris has opened its doors to become more family friendly as the year's progress on. If Paris sounds like a good idea to you, then the words Disneyland Paris would sound even better to the kids. Whisk your family away to this magical experience set in the heart of Paris, France. The weather is more or less the same as England's weather, so go when the sun hits if you don't want the rain or snow to damper things, but for those who are willing to brave the weather conditions in Jan – March, they'll be well rewarded with little to no queues, free nights and free kids deals, which I think would make the parents a little happier, no doubt.

Right next to France is the host country of the next recommended destination, Rome. Rome, which is the capital of Italy, has always been one of the most talked about cities to visit with its great historical value and beautiful surroundings. The best way to sightsee through Rome is on foot which is perfect for families with kids who want a easy-going holiday. Children get to have fun everywhere, whether it's throwing a coin in the Trevi and making a wish or admiring the roman soldiers or even feeding the pigeons, children would be constantly occupied which makes for a happier family vacation.

If you're looking for a relaxing beach holiday, look no further than Crete, Greece. Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and boasts beautiful beaches, cheap family friendly accommodation and amazing food. Parents get to sip on a glass of wine while the kids are entertained in children clubs, sit by the beach or even take your little ones swimming in the shallow waters that are perfectly safe for some family fun. And if you are looking to pair relaxation with a bit of a cultural trip for yourself and the kids, exploring Crete and its impressive remains, beautiful churches and palaces will certainly fulfill that without disappointment.
