Paris for Families: Playful Refinement
Children experience Paris’ museums, art and culture through play. Fun workshops introduce them to French cuisine and the Impressionists’ painting techniques.
"Andrea did a wonderful job designing an itinerary to suit three generations of diverse interests, and was flexible and responsive to last minute changes and requests. He showed us many hidden treasures of this beautiful region that would have missed we're it not for him."
- Heather on her journey in Italy
A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Best Tickets to the Louvre
Arrival in Paris. It is beautiful and the children are fascinated by the sights. But you dread the lines and having to wait hours for a glimpse of Mona Lisa. Kids are restless! Luckily, your expert guides seem to have everything under control. For one, they hold a magic ticket (a bunch of them). With these your family skips the line and the fun starts right away. Each activity includes special materials and booklets. Aided with these, your guides take the kids on a treasure hunt in the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay. It is a wonderful way to learn about art-history and culture.
Paris is best absorbed on the move. A scooter ride by the Seine takes the family on a fun ride through some of Paris’ most iconic monuments and sights. You are glad to see that through play, the children are absorbing history and culture. Your guides are expert storytellers and they present history in such a compelling way that a tour of Montmartre soon turns into a fantasy of times past, that seem to come to life. Read more
Workshops for Children
There is much to learn in Paris. You and your family attend exciting workshops where you learn how to bake authentic French pastries, bread and croissants. A fashion expert guides you in the creation of haute couture outfits and makes for a wonderful souvenir. In the Orangerie Museum you learn of the Water Lilies and then head to a studio where you try your hand at impressionist painting… It’s much more fun ― and messier ― than what you’d originally thought. The kids learn the basics of French with a teacher that is patient and charming, and finally the kids go on a photography rampage around Paris. Who would’ve thought kids could be shutter-happy?
There is a mystery in Saint-Germain. Inspired by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, you and your family play a game where you have to solve puzzles and use your powers of deduction and your knowledge to finally shed matter over the mystery. After only a couple of days, the children are practically Parisian, and even if you have to say goodbye to the City of Lights, you take with you unforgettable memories, and a wealth of culture that will certainly come in handy in their bright, bright future.
