I've spent countless hours planning trips for with my two children and I'd love you to be able to experience these itineraries -please steal!
I actually didn't take my kids on this trip, but it was one of the most unique experiences I've ever had, so I'm including it here. Frankly, the Fez Medina (ranked at #11 in Lonely Planet's Ultimate Travel Guide - ahead of Petra and Sagrada Familia), was one of the most astonishing places I've ever been - it's a working medieval city and just far enough off the tourist map, that you feel like you've actually discovered something that no one else has seen. That coupled with Chefchaouen ("the blue city"), made this an unforgettable trip!

If you’ve been dreaming of a trip to the either Petra or the Pyramids, this trip is for you! This 9-day adventure combines the history of both the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt and Petra in Jordan. The trip is full of wonder and discovery at both of these sights.
Italy is truly the country of dreams - I combined the history and awe inspiring sights of Rome and the Vatican with a beach holiday on the Amalfi Coast. This trip is great for kids as well - you can temper the museums and history with lots of fun activities and a beautiful beach to boot!
Turkey seems to still fly a bit under the radar with US tourists, but it's one of safest, most beautiful places we've been. We went to Istanbul for the history and mosques and then to Cappadocia for the underground cities and balloon rides and finished up in Fethiye at a beautiful beach resort.
Literally the first beer I ever had with my son - Paulaner hefeweizen in Munich!
