A long time ago, in a year BK (before kids), a friend of mine travelled with his wife and two small children to Florence. I remember, upon his return, him lamenting that they were stuck in their admittedly luxurious villa next to the pool; the kids, pre-schoolers, had no interest in cultural outings. It was not the vacation that he imagined. It was one of those warning signs as I crossed the bridge to parenthood - another fun thing I'd never get to do again.
Luckily, that scenario didn't come to pass and museums are still fun, though going to a museum with kids is definitely not the same as going alone. Instead of sharing my own experience, I decided to ask for input from David Hogg, who runs Samkip Guides (Hotels for Families) and for whom travel with kids is a vocation.
