Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend in store.
Today, I am linking up with other bloggers posting on France – Simply Irresistible! I decided to post on traveling to Paris with children, because I’ve done it! I’ll share the obvious highlights and a couple of secret tips.
Traveling with children can have its challenges (and rewards) no matter how near or far you are traveling. But, toss in a foreign language and jet lag and you have a whole other set of issues to contend with. But, having traveled to Paris with my then 5 and 8 year old….there is no city more welcoming to children. Come on….I’ll show you how we did it.
First, we rented an apartment. On the Left Bank. Rue du Four via Elite Destination Homes. I just checked the rates and there is no way that’s what we paid…so if you seriously want to rent an apartment, ask for their best rate. The apartment sleeps 6 and has an amazing location. And, a concierge. Seriously…..such an amazing way to travel as a family.
One of the unexpected highlights of Paris is Musee Rodin. Part home, part gallery, part gardens….this was one of our favorite museums to visit. I had to appreciate my 5 year old’s willingness to pose alongside world renown statuary.
One thing I’ve learned is that children truly are adaptable….to time changes, to unusual food and to new experiences. What a thrill to see Paris through their eyes.
