Family of 4 (including teen and tween) going to Paris

Jump to last reply

Our family of four--my husband, me, and our two daughters (almost 10 and almost 14)--will be taking a three week trip to Europe this summer. As part of that trip, we will be in Paris for three nights (afternoon/ evening on the first day, then two full days, and a morning on the last day). What would you recommend that we do?

We've been to Europe once before as a family. When the girls were 6 and 10, we were lucky enough to live in Croatia for six months. While living there, we spent one day in Paris (we were staying for longer in the French countryside). On that trip, we went to the Eiffel Tower and took one of the boats on the Seine since we had so little time there. The only thing that the four of us decided is that we will not be going back up the Eiffel Tower, though we do all want to see it at night.

We're staying in a rental apartment in the 3rd arrondisement. We expect we'll be doing a lot of walking, wandering, and taking the Metro. Though I love going into old churches and museums, I don't think our daughters will be into that (or at least not very much). I want to go to one museum, but from what I've read, I'm thinking not the Louvre because it might be too overwhelming.

My older daughter has taken one year of French in school and is excited (but probably nervous) to be using it. She thinks she wants to do a lot of shopping, but that's not exactly what the other three family members are excited about. : )

I welcome your recommendations!
