 He enjoyed it so much more than he though he would! There is no doubt that we will go back often.


Tips on Visiting Paris:

  • If you go in high season book a tour to see the main attractions as you can usually by pass the line.
  • Use the Metro to get around, every attraction or area has a Metro Station close to it
  • Book tickets to the Eiffel Tower before you get there, otherwise the online tickets may sell out while you are in Paris
  • Try to avoid visiting in high season, it is really busy (we were there in July and it was crazy)
  • Take a evening stroll along the Seine River
  • Do not rent a car for getting around the city. You won't be able to park it and to be honest the drivers are crazy - Stick to the Metro, taxis, tours or walking
  • If you don't speak any French, learn a little. If you at least try the local people will be charmed and it will be easier to communicate with them
  • Make sure you take a good guide book and map
  • Take a great Digital Camera and extra batteries and a 32 GB Memory Card

Paris France Travel Guide with Kids

We don't always recommend European cities for family vacations, especially if you don't have a well thought out plan. Otherwise you may find the kids like these kids we saw in the Louvre.

Many family travel experts don't agree with me however, and feel that you can have a great family vacation to this iconic city. After checking them out, I think I agree!


Here are some Paris France travel guide ideas for visiting with your kids.

  • Ride the Carousels, you can find them in the Jardin Des Tuileries, the Parc de Champ de Mars and in the Luxembourg Gardens.
