Family weekend in Paris

Paris is a wonderful city for family holidays and breaks !

There are so many fun things to do with kids in Paris, whether it’s climbing up the Arc de Triomphe, exploring the Louvre, sailing boats in the Jardin des Tuileries, touring the sewers of Paris, riding to the top of the Eiffel Tower, checking out the gargoyles at Notre Dame, or enjoying an ice cream on Ile St-Louis.

 

 

Thankfully, Paris is a child-friendly city. With many of its principal sights concentrated in a fairly small area, it’s quite walkable with kids, and parks are conveniently located near monuments or museums.

Paris is a great walking city, especially all those wide boulevards, and tucked away in every neighborhood are charming little parks, open to everyone. Wherever you go, breathe in the delicious smells of pastries from the nearest patisserie or boulangerie, and stop in to sample the sweetness of Paris.

It seems that Paris has more museums and monuments per square kilometer than anywhere else and they are fabulous, but don’t explode trying to see them all when you visit Paris with kids. Plan your days well and you’ll have a truly unforgettable stay in the ‘City of Lights’. And after eating your fill of steak-frites and strolling along the Seine, you can make the kids’ year with a trip to Disneyland.
