Kid’s Movies Set in Europe

As the season to Downton Abbey just came to an end it made me think how much more fun it was watching that show this year after visiting Highclere Castle last summer which is where Downton Abbey is filmed.

I think visiting Europe is really fun for kids because they will read about various cities in books, learn about them in school and see them on TV or in movies. It makes it much more interesting and fun if you have been there.
Following is a list of movies and books set in some of the cities we take groups to. Please feel free to pass along others.
