Paris with Kids
Paris is one of our favorite destinations. It’s easy to get around, the food is among the best in the world, and there are an infinite number of things to do, with culture, art, shopping, parks, and monuments everywhere you go. The city can be just as fun for families as it is for couples, but a visit with kids requires extra planning or you’ll end up exhausted and stressed, with no one happy. Here are our top five tips for a better kid-oriented trip to Paris:
1) Stay Better
As with the rest of Europe, hotels were largely designed without families in mind. There are Parisian hotels with rooms that sleep four, and there are a few with connecting rooms, but it’s not easy to stumble upon them. Start your planning early (through a search on Travelocity) to get an optimal room setup in the neighborhood of your choice. We prefer the 7th arrondissement, with the Eiffel Tower and markets of Rue Cler, but everyone has a different opinion, and it’s hard to go wrong. Virtually anywhere you stay you’ll have access to the Metro, so don’t be afraid to stay slightly outside the city center to save money.
