Travel Spotlight: Paris Family Vacation

Bonjour Paris! We’ve complied a list to get the most out of Paris in a way that everyone can enjoy.

  1. Left Bank favorite Hôtel de Fleurie has special rooms for families – two rooms connected by a door with a pair of large beds in each one that can sleep as many as eight. Kids under 12 stay free with their parents.
  2. Condé Nast recommends bistros and brasseries where Parisians actually eat en famille. In particular they recommend Astier for it’s “introduce the kids to real French food” offerings.
  3. Think about your kids’ attention span. Older kids might love the day tromping around the Louvre, but younger kids might think it’s a bore. Think shorter trips and smaller museums with lots of outdoor time in the many famous parks of Paris.
  4. The Cité des Enfants, part of the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industri has plenty of hands-on exhibits keep kids interested and engaged. Plan on making a day of it!

If you are staying longer than a week, you may want to consider renting a self-catering apartment for a service like Bon voyage!
