11 days in Paris with family - any "must-do" day trips?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Paris this summer for 11 days (not including travel days). We have 2 kids, ages 11 and 14. As this is the first time that our kids have been to Europe we are hoping not to rush from one sight-seeing destination to another, which is why we'll be there for 11 days. One of those days we may visit Fontainebleu.

We thought it might be fun to do a day trip, via train, outside of Paris and are looking for suggestions. Brussels? Provence? Provence would be the farthest we'd be willing to travel in one day, and even that may be too rushed. I'm looking for any feedback from those who have done that in a day trip.

A day trip may be spontaneous…should we then expect much higher ticket prices for a last-minute purchase? Ideally, how far in advance would we purchase tickets?

For those of you who have spent time in Paris with kids, do you think we can easily fill our 11 days in Paris, with no need to leave? (That's kind of what I'm thinking.)

We've booked an apartment for the duration of our stay so staying in another area overnight isn't an option.

Thanks in advance.
