Where do you start?

There is genuinely so much you can do as a family in this city. Take the children to visit the flower and pet market at the Ile de la Cité, climb to the top of the Sacré Coeur and take in views of the cityscape, enjoy a boat ride on the Seine or spoil them rotten at the Jardin du Luxembourg. The Parc de la Villette is great for children of all ages, the Jardin de Tuileries is good for older ones and animal lovers will enjoy the zoo at the Jardin de Plantes. A trip to the Père Lachaise Cemetery will keep even the most cynical teenager intrigued. This famous graveyard is home to some of the most notorious artists, novelists, playwrites and singers such as Oscar Wilde, Edith Piath, Georges Bizet and Jim Morrison to name but a few of the cemetery’s vast list of A list inhabitants. Oh, and of course, The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, the Moulin Rouge, Versailles, Disney Land …. And for as little as 50€ - 116€ for a night, one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic cities can be yours to enjoy during the Easter holidays.
