Two weeks in Paris ... how to fill?

Jump to last reply

The facts: Family of four with 18yo son and 9yo daughter who has celiac (must be gluten-free) will be in Paris August 3-16. We live in south Texas so anything less than scalding hot temps will be cooler than where we live in August! We plan to take one day and make a trip to Disneyland Paris. The kids have never been to any Disney park so we thought we'd take advantage of the proximity. Other than this, we have no plans for the two weeks.

We are staying at the Serotel Lutece at 2 Rue Berthollet. I don't know anything about the hotel ... my husband made all the reservations and told me about the trip after the fact,

Would like suggestions for family activities, activities our 18yo son could go do by himself (this trip is a high school graduation present among other things), gluten-free restaurants, day trips that could be accomplished on public transportation (we will not be renting a car), etc. Mostly, we would like to walk everywhere and just absorb being in Paris.

The 9yo is an accomplished ballerina for her age so maybe taking in a ballet performance would be nice?

This is our first trip to Paris. We spent two weeks in Eze (near Nice) about 4 1/2 years ago and loved it.

Thanks in advance for all suggestions!
