Paris for The Little Ones

Paris has been on my radar my entire life, and between French classes and the classic American Girl Doll Grace Thomas (who goes to Paris to become a pastry chef) my girls too became obsessed with the city of lights.  

It was the ultimate girls trip in the making, and I just knew that having my Mom there would make it that much more special. We wanted to meet Paris on a leisurely pace and really get to know the city. So, we decided to spend six nights in Paris splitting our time between Le Meurice across the street from the Tuileries Garden and the Peninsula Paris right around the corner from Arc de Triomphe. 

In retrospect, we probably could have stayed there weeks longer. We did hit some tourist attractions, after all how could one go to Paris for the first time and not visit the Eiffel Tower? But, we gave it our best effort to try and stay as local as possible, we kept our schedule open and asked the locals lots of questions on where to eat and which corners of the city to check out.  Without further ado, here are some of our absolute favorite places to go, see, stay, and do!

Favorite Places

1. Tuileries Garden– The girls loved the ferris wheel and jumping on the trampolines. This was located directly across from Le Meurice and in the summer months there is a full carnival everyday.  It cannot be beat!

2. Eiffel Tower – I organized a VIP access tour of the tower and it was a great success with our family. We enjoyed an organized tour that pointed out all the great sights in Paris from the Eiffel Tower. The highlight of our tours for sure!

3. L’Osteria dell’ Anima– Amazing Italian restaurant with six tables.  We randomly stumbled upon this and it was our favorite restaurant by far.  It is not fancy, but who needs that when they are making pasta right in front of your eyes!

4. Montmartre to visit local artists, some hot chocolate, and finished off with a stop at Pierre Herme for its famous french macarons.

5. The Peninsula Pool, my girls couldn’t get enough of it.
