Looking for a holiday that takes in culture in a kid-friendly way? Here we pick out three historic sites that are also family friendly - as picked from National Geographic's top 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites for kids.
Sydney Opera House, Australia
Sydney Opera House is one of the most recognisable sights on the planet - and also one of the best when it comes to heritage.
The iconic landmark in Australia is a popular hotspot among tourists and locals alike thanks to its historical and geographical prowess.
Danish architect Jørn Utzon is the brains behind the building's stunning, revolutionary design that makes it stand out from the crowd in Sydney's famed harbour. It first opened its doors to the public in 1973 and is today one of the busiest live arts venues you will find anywhere in the world.
Carnival of Barranquilla, Colombia
The Carnival of Barranquilla in Colombia is equally as culturally significant. Here kids can enjoy nearly a whole week of performances from dancers bedecked in colourful outfits while also learning about the values and history of one of the most fascinating countries worldwide.
Staged on the streets of Barranquilla at the beginning of March each year, it is the most eagerly awaited festival on the calendar and tells the tale of the indigenous, European and African roots of Colombia's Caribbean coast.
The Colosseum and Roman Forum, Italy
The Colosseum and Roman Forum in Italy also features highly on the top 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites for youngsters. It was the Roman Empire's largest amphitheatre, where gladiators and beasts fought for the pleasure of the Emperor, and today hosts kid-friendly tours that trace Rome's vast history.
