You're going to Paris? And taking the kids? No problem - Paris with Kids offers a pro's insider tips for reconciling the adult, romantic side of Paris with the city's kid-friendly, adventurous aspects. The author presents a wealth of advice on how to plan a family visit to Paris, and how to have a blast while you're there. It shows how to enliven the tourist experience of Paris for youngsters: sending them searching for gargoyles, tracing the Secret of the Sorcerer's Stone in the Marais, and of course stopping by EuroDisney and the Eiffel Tower. There are countless anecdotes relating the people, events, and legends that make up the story of Paris. This new third edition features kid-tested recommendations for family-friendly hotels and restaurants, both in Paris and on day-trips outside the city. We include where to shop with kids for food, clothing, toys, English-language books, and other souvenirs; we offer our favorite playgrounds, green spaces, and amusement parks, suggestions for sports activities, and where to see magic shows, ride in a hot-air balloon, find kids' gourmet cooking classes, and how to make museums fun and enjoyable for the little ones.
