You will never run out of things to do in Paris. Between its numerous incredible monuments, exceptional cuisine, rich history, the splendid art world, countless shops and gorgeous parks, the city has long been one of the biggest European attractions for families. And it is easy to see why, as there is rarely another location that offers so many attractions. While some cities follow a certain theme closely, Paris seems to do everything well. Before looking into the best activities for you and your family experience, let’s first answer a common question that we see from newcomers.
After arriving at the airport, what would my best choice be in order to reach my place of accommodation?
Paris definitely has a solid public transportation network, and we have no trouble recommending it during your stay. However, it will be highly unpractical for the trip between the airport and your hotel. First of all, you will most likely be tired after your flight, and you will have to carry your luggage on top of that. Second of all, finding the right routes in a city that you don’t know will exhaust you even more in these conditions. The trip will not be very comfortable, nor particularly fast either.
The best choice here is to use Paris airport transfer services. These serve to eliminate the stress of finding your hotel and will allow you to save more time and energy for the fun parts of your travels. Knowing that professionals take care of all the aspects of your first trip will allow you to focus on the actual visiting and forget about chores. Once you are ready to explore the city, here are some excellent activities to experience with your family.
- Admire the wildlife at Paris Zoological Park
Few can resist the attraction provided by an incredible display of wildlife and Paris can definitely be said to excel with this location. The number of fascinating animals seen here is astounding, all of which are placed in suitable environments that allow them to feel comfortable and behave naturally.
The zoo also includes a gorgeous greenhouse that displays the type of vegetation seen in tropical rainforest climates.
- Visit Musée Grévin
Children and adults alike will be fascinated by the realistic depiction of famous figures found here in a collection that keeps growing. As of now, there are approximately 450 statues to be found, with a few of the most notable names being Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and Leonardo da Vinci. Present celebrities such as Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo can also be found. A very attractive option is the “Kid’s Discovery” tour that shows children the process used by artists in order to create these statues.
- Experience the gorgeous CinéAqua
The stunning ways in which technology is made use of make this one of the best aquarium experiences in France. More than 9,000 fish can be found here, including dozens of shark species, all in a gorgeous interior: there are no less than 16 projections which, coupled with live shows, serve to provide great education regarding sea life in ways that are guaranteed to engage, not bore.
