Visit the attic where Anne Frank and her family hid during World War II. Experience what the 'Golden Ages' in Europe were like during a family treasure hunt in the Rijksmusuem.

Brussels

A visit to Brussels would not be complete without some serious sampling of Belgian Chocolate. Step into the history of the Aztecs and Mayas and discover the world of chocolate at the Cocoa and Chocolate Museum.

Take part in an underground tour and discover the remains of the palace of Charles V. Children can participate in an underground treasure hunt and will receive a backpack with a treasure map, fancy dress and flashlight to complete the missions.

Paris

View the city in all its glory from the viewing platform of the iconic Eiffel Tower. You could opt to take a private fun-filled activity walking tour during which your guide will tell you the stories of Paris, retrace the footsteps of the 'Hunchback of Notre Dame' and gets you to solve riddles to find a secret Renaissance passageway.

Visit the magnificent Versailles Palace on a weekend and be entertained by the spectacular musical water fountain show.

And at the outskirts of Paris there is EuroDisney waiting for you. Take a day to discover the five magical themed lands, the big thrill rides as well as the kid-friendly adventures.

Black Forest

One of the highlights of your holiday will be your stay at lake Titisee, right in the centre of this fabled forest. See the world's largest cuckoo clocks display and indulge in some first class Black Forest Cake..

Spend a day at the open air museum and find out how people have lived and worked in Black Forest farm houses over the last 400 years. Children can learn how to make a cuckoo whistle, water wheel or a traditional stable lantern.

Lucerne

Board a nostalgic paddle steamer for a cruise on Lake Lucerne. Watch the sleepy bays, picturesque villages and historic landmarks silently glide by.

Take the cable car up to Pilatus or Titlis Mountain and enjoy the spectacular views from the top over Lake Lucerne and surrounding mountains. Have a snow ball fight, visit the Ice Grotto inside the glacier, go by IceFlyer real close to the crevasses and use the 'Fun Lift' for tobogganing.

Como

The panorama train will take you through the spectacular landscape of the Swiss Alps to Lake Como. Take the funicular up to Brunate for sensational views of the lake.

Criss-cross the lake at leisure by boat. Stop and explore lovely Bellagio and Menagio and make time to visit some of the magnificent villas along the shoreline of the lake.

Venice

Explore the waterways and little alleyways of Venice by canal boat and on foot. Feed the pigeons on St Mark's square, visit the 14th Century Doges' Palace with the Bridge of Sighs, secret passageways and Casanova's cell and be entertained by stories of his legendary escapes.

Watch the glass-blowers and lace makers on Murano and Burano at their craft. Take a bicycle for a spin on the Lido where everyone can get away from the crowds for a while and enjoy the beach and the water of the Mediterranean. Or hire a kayak and explore the smaller, 'off-the-beaten-path' canals of Venice.

Florence

Delightful Florence has many treasures and experiences in store for you. A stroll or bike ride through the historic inner city with a stop or two at one of their many famous gelati shops. Take an Italian cooking class and perfect your pasta, pizza or gelato making technique.

Choose from excursions into the Tuscan countryside either by coach or in a vintage Fiat 500. Visit nearby Pisa and climb the famous leaning tower. Or take a guided tour for families in the Palazzo Vecchio and discover what everyday life was like for the Medici family.

Rome

Visit the Colosseum - the greatest amphitheatre of the antiquity, build almost 2000 years ago. From Palatine Hill admire the views of the Roman Forum and Nero's Circus Maximus where chariot races were held. Then master the basics of hand-to-hand combat at a genuine gladiator school on the ancient Appian Way.

See Michelangelo's famous 'Creation of Adam' fresco in the Sistine Chapel of the Vatican and admire the magnificent St Peter's Square.
