Paris is one of the most visited places in the world and most of the popular tourist spots in the city are always little crowded. These facts about the city of lights might restrain you from going on Paris walking tours with your children.
However, many tourists are not aware of the fact that Paris is actually a kid-friendly city. There are plenty of exciting and adventurous things waiting for your kids in Paris. So, make sure to take them with you when you are going on Paris tours.
If you book tickets to the famous museums like Louvre in advance, you will be able to skip the line, meaning that you will not have to wait in long queues with your kids to get tickets to the museum. Additionally, try to avoid visiting museums in Paris on Wednesdays and on school vacations. Here are a few interesting things you can do in Paris with your kids.
The Eiffel Tower
If you are going on your first Paris tour, visiting the Eiffel Tower should be on top of your list of things to do in Paris. Your kids will love climbing the 600+ stairs to the top but try stopping at the first level to see the short film on Eiffel Tower’s history. If your kids are below the age of six, you can take them to the Champ de Mars.
The Cite des Science
Visiting the Cite des Science on cold or rainy days is the perfect thing to do while you are touring Paris with your kids. There are two areas inside this place and each of them offers exceptional indoor activities for kids. Your kids will enjoy spending time in Cite des Science and they will be able to play and interact with other kids. You should also try visiting the L’Aquarium located in the basement. It will be a nice experience for your kids.
The area around Sacre-Coeur is a favorite tourist spot, but it will be less crowded when compared to the other places. You can either take a little train ride or walk 270 steps to reach the top. If you are traveling with kids below the age of eight, it will be best to take the train ride, as your kids will enjoy the unique experience.
