2. Bergen, Norway "We took a cable car up to Mount Ulriken and thoroughly enjoyed hiking down..."

Lastminute.com reviewer Sze Min Ayn says, "We spent a total of 3 days in Bergen - 2 days hiking and 1 day in the city. We took a cable car up to Mount Ulriken and thoroughly enjoyed hiking down (proper hiking shoes are recommended as it can be slippery). The hike is not difficult as the majority of the hike has stairs and we saw children hiking effortlessly too!"

3. Barcelona, Spain "I would recommend Mount Tibidabo for kids, the beaches and cable cars."

Lastminute.com reviewer Deborah says, "Barcelona is a wonderful city full of Character and Culture. I would always recommend it to anybody who is interested in city breaks that involve both. The Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell are highlights not to be missed but make sure you book online in advance. I would recommend breaks in autumn or spring when the city is at its best and less overcrowded than in summer when the amount of the population can rise to 5 million with the increase of tourist numbers. Kid's enjoyment: Tibidabo and the sea. Places you saw: I would recommend Mount Tibidabo for kids, the beaches and cable cars. Wellness activity and experience: Yoga and swimming. Good, Yoga and swimming salivated! Yoga and swimming. Like most in trip: Sightseeing."

4. Geneva, Switzerland "Sightseeing places: Riding the cable car to glacier paradise to see the Matterhorn."

Lastminute.com reviewer Katie shares, "We stayed in Zermatt and took the cable car and train to get close to the Matterhorn. Using our Swiss rail pass saved us 50% and got us in free to the Zermatt museum. We also took our 5-year-old zip lining twice. He loved it so much we did it twice. Food experience: The cheese fondue is a must in Zermatt. We did it twice and loved both places. It is a heavy meal, but worth it. Adventurous activities: We zip lined at the family fun park at the end of Zermatt. It was easy to find and had the perfect course for kids. Sightseeing places: Riding the cable car to glacier paradise to see the Matterhorn. Romantic experience: Having a drink in glacier paradise was a real treat. Kid's experience: The zip lining was so much fun we went back the next day. I liked: Zermatt is beautiful, charming and a world of its own. It was nice to be away from cars and pollution for a few days."
