If you’re going to a major museum,book a kid-friendly private tour
One of the highlights of our summer trip was a private tour of the Louvre with Paris Muse.Not only did we avoid most of the lines and crowds,but the kids had a great time completing word puzzles and being led on a treasure hunt that included a wide spectrum of Babylonian,Greek,French Medieval,and Italian Renaissance art and antiquities.
There are numerous groups that lead kid-centric private tours,including Paris Muse and Context Travel.Search on TripAdvisor for“Paris Activities”to see tour reviews,or check Wendy’s WOW List of Trusted Travel Experts to find someone who can arrange special activities wherever you’re traveling.
Every summer that we return to Paris,we find ourselves having more and more picnics,both for lunch and dinner.We’re able to sit and enjoy wine while the kids run around and play—and the breads,meats,cheeses and tarts bought from local markets can’t be beat.
