RV trip in Europe for two weeks with kids - where to go?

Hello,

We are planning an RV Trip in Europe for two weeks with our 12 year old twins this July. My son doesn't really like going to too many museums but like doing outdoor activities (hiking, biking, kayaking, etc). We will start from Frankfurt. We have to go to Paris (for our daughter) and Lodi (a city near Milan to meet someone) but we are not sure if we'll have time to go down to Rome. We want to go to the Alps definitely. Could you give us some idea where would be good to visit? Where should be part when we go to the big city (Paris, Rome, Venice etc)?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

RVs are a PITA in cities and driving into Italian Cities you'll have to cope with ZTL

Are you returning the RV to Frankfurt?

Yes we will be using an RV of a relative who lives near Frankfurt. So we will start/end our trip near Frankfurt.

Hi, do some online research about finding RV parks in Europe!

You can start here... http://www.campingeurope.com/

You also may want to buy at least one book to take with you. Do your relatives use a camping guide? Book ahead since you are going in high summer. You'll need to know about tolls and where you cannot drive the motorhome.

The really important thing is to NOT try to do too much! If you do, your children will remember nothing else other than driving, driving, driving. Plan fewer stops and enjoy them more. I've been RVing for many years in the US and say the same thing to folks over here :-)

You won't be able to drive an RV as fast as a car. When planning your route, allow extra time.

After a meeting at Lodi, I can suggest you to visit Venice which is having sites for children like the lake and the streets along it are liked by kids. There are kids family restaurant must experience it.

Here you are again, Eve K. Have you ever travelled in a motorhome? Where is a good RV park in Venice?
