A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Attractions like Disneyland Paris and Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou make great kid-friendly stops. When in Paris, make a side trip to see Palace of Versailles in Versailles, approximately 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Louvre Museum, get in on the family fun at Jardin d'Acclimatation, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, and wander the streets of Montmartre.
