Paris with kids, 3+ days

Jump to last reply

Getting close to our trip in a few weeks and still struggling with a reasonable itinerary for our 1st trip to Paris, 2 adults and 3 kids, age 8, 10, 10. Want to mix culture with outdoor fun for the kids. Our kids appreciate good food and are adventurous eaters and know how to behave in restaurants. Please give thoughts or suggestions. I'd also appreciate any restaurant recommendations. The only set plans are tickets I booked for a tour of the Eiffel tower and the bunker underneath it on Wed evening. Tickets were sold out for the lifts, so this seemed like the best way to get to the 2nd level and the tour sounded interesting. Also booked a bike tour/train trip to Giverny for our last full day

SUNDAY
We arrive in the afternoon on a Sunday and will check into our hotel in the 7th Arondisement. It would be nice to stroll around, get aquainted and take in the general feel of Paris. Would like to have dinner is a nice but family friendly restaurant and then go on a cruise of the Siene, probably Vedettes du Pont Neuf. Any reccommendation and where to stroll those first few hours and specific dinner reccomendations? The hotel appears to be close to Les Invalides, Musse Rodin and Champs De Mars. Should we head there before dinner?

MONDAY
Do our own walking tour: Ile de la Cite, Notre Dame, Ile St.Louis (stop for Gelato at Amorino). For the 2nd part of the day I'm considering Left bank, St Severin, St Michel, Latin Quarter, St Chapelle. Does it make sense to group these on 1 day?

TUESDAY
Musee D'Orsay, the Marias and Jewish Quarter, Montmare and Sacre Coure

Would it make sense and fit to go to Champs Elysees and climb the Arc du Triomphe on Monday or Tuesday?

WEDNESDAY
Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, Palais Royal, Jardin Luxemborg, Pantheon

THURSDAY
Bike tour to Monets Garden. Any dinner reccomendations near St Lazare station after we return from biking?

I've tried putting this together with guide books but with no personla knowledge feel a bit lost. I'd appreciate any guidance, changes reccomended to itinerary or grouping of places, dining reccomendations, etc.

Thanks
