About Family Holidays

The idea for this website came about while I was planning a family holiday to Sicily. It was difficult to find good guides or information about child-friendly holidays without spending a lot of time checking out every resort, hotel, and venue separately.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have all of this information in one place? And that’s how Family Holidays was launched.

I wanted to make it easy for people to find out the practical details – like ticket costs, suitability for young children, accessibility with a pushchair, traveling on public transport, and all of those extra things parents need to think about.

The contributors to the site are travel experts or travel writers who have enjoyed many a holiday with their own families and want to share their experiences with others.

We’ll continue to add as much great knowledge and info as we can , and hope we help lots of families have amazing holidays and create lifelong memories!


Hi! I’m Erika and I’m from Malta. In 2018 I was tasked to organise a family trip to nearby Sicily, but I found it hard to find kids activities for the trip. This is why I started this site and hope you can find the information you need for your holiday.
