Paris Kids AttractionsParis might be the most romantic city in the world but it's also very well geared towards children. Parents will find there are endless activities and attractions to enjoy as a family.
Take a walk to the top of the Eiffel Tower and marvel at the views over this glorious city, or head down the Champs Elysées for a spot of shopping, but beware the tourist traps.
