The City of Lights is Paris.

It’s possible that Paris has a reputation for being a romantic city. In Paris, you may experience history, art, renowned buildings, and delectable cuisine. When travelling to Paris with kids, you must take them to one of the city’s great parks. Make sure to stroll through Luxembourg Gardens and ride the vintage carousel at Tuileries Gardens with your kids. A Seine cruise provides a special vantage point from which to view Paris’s well-known sights and a chance for tired feet to relax after a long day of walking. Finally, your children will never forget climbing the Eiffel Tower and admiring the vista of Paris.

Castles, Caves, and Adventure Parks in the Dordogne

The Dordogne region of central France is a lesser-known jewel for families. There are a ton of activities and sights to explore in this town. There are some of the most ancient cave paintings in all of Europe there, as well as magnificent mediaeval castles perched over the Dordogne River, thrilling adventure playgrounds for kids of all ages, and much more. Families can stay in authentic self-catering accommodations in idyllic towns and experience life as a local for a week or more.

Snowy Mountain Adventures at Les Arcs

The spectacular Mont Blanc and other breathtaking mountains make the French Alps an ideal location for family to ski together and enjoy themselves. Our vacation at the Les Arcs ski resort in Bourg-Saint-Mourice, Savoie, was fantastic. Families can toboggan down the slopes on a run for kids ages 4 and up in addition to skiing. Swim in the pool at Mille 8 in Aqua fun at Arc 1800, a water park with slides, kid-friendly fountains, and breathtaking views of the skiers and mountains beyond. Then, warm up with classic cheese fondue at mountainside restaurants. Spend the evening toasting marshmallows around bonfires.

UN World Heritage Site City: Bordeaux

Families will feel right at home in the city of Bordeaux. However, it still exudes that certain Frenches, or je ne sais quoi. Due to the fact that the entire city center has been named a UN World Heritage Site, take a historical self-guided walking tour. There are many carousels and large open spaces for play throughout the route. Visit the Chartrons Market as well for delectably fresh French cuisine. My kids’ favorites were the macarons and the roast chicken. Don’t forget to set aside some time to play in the water next to Place de la Bourse as well (or Royal Square). Bordeaux, which is 300 miles from Paris and a great day trip destination for the beach or the countryside for winery visits.

Queen of the French Riviera is Nice.

The heart of the stunning Côte d’Azur, or French Riviera, is Nice. It is incredibly walkable and feels modest for such a vast city. Setting up residence in Nice for your family while you explore the region around it is a great option (like Monaco and Villefranche). Nice features stunning Belle Époque architecture, miles of Mediterranean beach, and enough to do and see. The finest activities to do in Nice with kids are outside thanks to the 300 days of sunshine every year. Before enjoying a swim, stroll around the Promenade Anglia’s and take in the coastal ambiance. Then stop at one of the world’s top playgrounds, the Promenade du Paillon. Before leaving town, you must treat yourself to an ice cream from the renowned Fenocchio’s, which offers upwards of 70 flavors.
