Best Family Attractions in Paris

Paris is one of the most visited places in the world. However, when you are with kids, it is important to remember that Paris can also be overwhelmingly packed. The idea should be to avoid the museums on a Wednesday (there is no school on Wednesdays and French kids would be all over the place) or during any kind of local holiday. Well, when you are in Paris, it does give you the chance to make friends back home jealous! Viber Out offers cheap international calls and you can even instantly share photos and videos from your trip! Here are some of the best adventures you can embark in Paris as a family:

  1. The Eiffel Tower

Needless to say, the Eiffel Tower makes for the perfect Paris moment for anyone. For any family visiting the City of Lights and Love, the Eiffel Tower will be an experience that you will remember for a lifetime. Since you would be traveling with kids, it will be a good idea to skip the line and book your tickets in advance. Kids will enjoy climbing all of the 600+ stairs to get a panoramic view of the city. Even for you as a couple, it would be a romantic experience being on top of the City of Love.

  1. The City des Science

Among the top rated places in Paris for families, the City des Science will be an amazing experience, especially when it’s raining or cold outside. There are several sections in the science museum, and each of them is filled with unique fun activities that the whole family can enjoy and not just the young ones. Again, it would be time saving if you have bought the tickets online and book your time slot, which lasts for about an hour and forty five minutes.

  1. Champs Elysees

The tour to the Champs Elysees starts at the Arc de Triomphe and you can walk as far as you can. There are 284 stairs to cover but you can always be at your own pace. At the top of the stairs you will witness an unobstructed view of twelve streets that originate from the arc. Back from the vantage point, you can also pay a visit to the Laduree on your way back. This is a famous spot for macaroons. A Disney Store here will allow you to pick up some souvenirs for the kids.

  1. The Tuileries / Museum de l’Orangerie

The Louvre is amazing but can also be crowded and not the perfect place you can spend some time with your family, especially if there are small kids. Instead, walk up to the Museum de l’Orangerie where it’s home to the water lilies of Monet. It’s fine take things at your own pace here and if you make it here early in the morning, you can even roll your kid’s stroller inside. Do enjoy the ice cream served at Angelina!

  1. The Jardins playgrounds

There are several of Jardins playgrounds around Paris but one of the best is the Jardin de Luxemburg. Free to enter, you can have a great time with your kids and even have a small picnic!

Have fun and come back with a lot of memories.

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.

I also own and run The Grown-up Travel Company as a travel designer creating personalised African itineraries for experienced adventurers
