Tips for Traveling to Europe with Babies and Toddlers

Why would anyone want to take a baby or toddler to Europe? Kids that young won’t remember the trip anyway … not to mention that it sounds like a nightmare.

I can’t tell you how many people have said this to me over the years.  Here’s my response:

It’s a blast to experience Europe with young kids. No, babies won’t remember these trips 10 years later, but you will! Plus, for those of us who really love traveling through Europe, we don’t want to have to postpone being there for 5 to 10 years.

Methodical and thoughtful planning makes these trips possible …
I don’t want to say EASY because travel with kids is rarely easy, but the right approach, itinerary, and accommodations make all the difference in the world.

I just wrote an article for Divine Caroline with comprehensive Tips for Traveling to Europe with Young Children.  Fear not! If you are considering a trip to Europe with tots, read on for details about what you need to know.
