Florence 'best for family holiday'

By Kev Kiernan

Florence at sunsetFlorence, Italy, has been named the best city in Europe for a family holiday.

The TripAdvisor website asked users to rank European cities according to their suitability for a family wishing to go on a city break, although travel insurance considerations would differ little for any location in the continent.

Florence was followed by the UK cities of Edinburgh and London respectively, then Berlin and Barcelona.

The rest of the top 10 respectively comprised Rome, Vienna, Paris, Budapest and Istanbul.

Price may dictate what this year's destination will be for many ordinary families, given the lower standards of living emerging across the UK.

A separate TripAdvisor survey suggests half of people planning to take a holiday will be spending less money this year.
