Of all the mountains, all the oceans, all the great cities of the world, no one place has been written about, sung about, celebrated in every possible way more than Paris. Everybody knows about the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, Napoleon, and the cafès of the Left Bank. But there are magnificent attractions for every member of your family in Paris.
From the top of the Eiffel Tower to the creepy Catacombes below the city, the author of the highly acclaimed London for Families now delivers a comprehensive survey of Paris's main attractions, designed especially to help families plan a vacation that's fun and affordable. Delight in Montmartre and the merry-go-round at the base of the Sacrè Coeur, or take a boatride on the Seine. Wander the Left Bank, the Latin Quarter, the fantastic flea markets, and the incredible array of beautiful parks full of sights and activities for all ages. Or how about a magnificent museum of dolls? A vast science museum? Or a 2,000 year old Roman arena where you can stand in the ring? And what kid can resist the most breathtaking tour in Europe: the Paris Sewers? Paris for Families explores the city's history and culture through walking tours that will keep the kids enthralled.
Paris for Families is your guide for the most memorable family holiday of your life, everything you need to know about making the most of your money, finding a home away from home in the city, and putting together an itinerary that's both practical and fun. Even if you have never been to Paris before and don't speak a word of French, you can thrive in this city, making memories that will be part of your family forever.
