What are the most popular activities to do in Paris?
Paris is very much a walkers' city, so if you're wondering what to do in Paris, let your feet lead the way. Compact and coherent, it's no surprise that Paris is the home of the flaneur.
The Île de la Cité is a fine place to begin and Notre Dame is the star. If you're looking for outdoor activities in Paris, you'll find the famous flower market nearby. The Île de la Cité also makes a great place to begin a stroll by the Seine.
If you like a taste of the unusual, why not try the Saint-Ouen flea market. Once a favorite haunt of the surrealists, this market offers you a different side of Paris to the usual tourist sites.
Of course, if you prefer boutique shopping, Paris is unparalleled. The eighteenth-century streets of Le Marais are probably the best place to go. You'll find a welter of smaller shops as well as galleries and restaurants with a truly authentic Parisian air.
Are there many good activities to do with kids in Paris?
The French are very welcoming to children and you'll find plenty of amenities for them in Paris. For starters, Paris is well provided with green spaces where the kids can run free. The Luxembourg Gardens for example has tons of green space as well as tennis courts and architectural treasures.
If you're willing to travel a little, you'll also find theme parks just outside the city. Disneyland Paris is probably the most famous and accessible. But don't forget Parc Asterix. It's less crowded and cheaper, and, as well as fun characters, includes much of historical interest.
