Must-See Family Attractions In Paris
Here are our top picks for a child-friendly vacation on the banks of the Seine.
1. Disneyland Paris
This sprawling holiday destination is actually two separate parks in one. At the 54-hectare Disneyland Park, the worlds of Snow White, Dumbo and Peter Pan are recreated in Fantasyland, while Frontierland brings a touch of the Wild West to the outskirts of Paris and there are pirates ahoy in Adventureland. Meanwhile the attractions at Walt Disney Studios Park take their cue from popular movies like Ratatouille and Star Wars.
2. Parc Asterix
The hilarious children's comic by Goscinny and Uderzo is the inspiration for this vibrant leisure park. Experience life in an ancient Gaul village or as a Roman legionary, witness battle re-enactments in an arena, and learn about French history in a fun way.
3. Parc Zoologique
See big cats, manatees and over 120 other kinds of animals on a two-mile trek that takes you through five different habitats, from the dry heat of the Sudan to the jungles of Madagascar. Plus, there are restaurants, picnic areas, gift shops and everything else you need for an all-round great day out.
4. Jardin d'aclimitation
On the edge of the Bois du Boulogne, this beautiful park from Napoleonic times has been updated with roller coasters and other thrilling rides and activities - 40 of them in all. There's also a chance to get up close with over 400 animals and exotic birds, including some very friendly parrots.
