You have planned to spend a few days of vacation to visit Paris with your family, and you don't know how to organize yourself? It must be said that the monuments and cultural offerings are so numerous that you will not be able to see everything. So, so as not to miss any of the essentials, here is a short itinerary for a 3-day stay in Paris with the family.

 

Day 1: take advantage of the best visits to do near our hotel in Paris 15

The Bleu de Grenelle hotel has the advantage of being particularly well located, a stone's throw from the 7th arrondissement and the most emblematic monuments of Paris . So let's start our journey there.

Pont de Bir Hakeim: an emblematic bridge of the capital

Crossed by the Seine, the capital benefits from a pleasant setting for walking. Along the walks, the bridges of Paris are the charm of the city, and lead you from one bank to the other with ease. Your first steps in the capital will guide you to the Bir-Hakeim bridge .

This two-storey bridge, which was created during the 20th century, offers a particular use, since its 2nd floor is reserved for line 6 of the Paris metro. Walkers and cars can then take the 1st floor of the bridge to go from the 15th to the 16th arrondissement.

From the Bir-Hakeim bridge, you will have a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower and the Swan Island.

Visit the Antoine Bourdelle Museum

In less than 10 minutes by metro (line 6), you will reach the Antoine Bourdelle museum , near the Montparnasse tower. You will be able to discover the workshops and the gardens of the famous sculptor, as well as his many works: bronzes, marbles, plasters... You will learn more about the one who was the collaborator of Rodin, and the master of many great artists, such as Giacometti, Vieira da Silva, or even Germaine Richier.

Discover Paris via the Montparnasse tower

If the Eiffel Tower is the place of reference to offer you a view of Paris, the Montparnasse Tower is the highest observation point in the capital. Then climb to the 59th floor of the tower thanks to the fastest elevator in Europe, which will take you 210 meters high in just 38 seconds, and treat yourself to breathtaking views for 40 km around.

Take the time to also stop at the 56th floor, to follow the interactive route that will make you discover Paris in augmented reality .

 

Day 2: discover the gardens next to your 4-star hotel

If you are planning a family stay with children , it is always nice to be able to leave the hustle and bustle of Paris for a few moments and find yourself in a quiet space. For this, many parks and green spaces are freely accessible near the Bleu de Grenelle hotel.

André-Citroën park

In less than 15 minutes from the hotel (metro lines 8 and 10), André-Citroën Park has large lawns installed in place of the former Citroën factory. Created in 1992, this Parisian park of 14 hectares is the newest in the capital, and you can feel the futuristic architecture in each of the 3 parts (white garden, black garden and large central park). Along the paths, you can admire the exotic trees, the two large greenhouses and the rare plants.

Meanwhile, children can have fun on the huge playgrounds.

Georges Brassens park

15 minutes by public transport, or 30 minutes on foot from the Bleu de Grenelle hotel, the Georges Brassens park is another green space in Paris where it is good to walk with the family. A true tribute to the great singer, who lived close by, this park was, in the past, occupied by vines.

Today, this place for a walk is ideal for a few days with the family. The setting is conducive to relaxation, with a small river crossing it, a belvedere and a small bridge. There are also a few vines and beehives. The puppet theater and pony rides are a delight for the little ones.

Walk on the Champ-de-Mars

During your family stay in Paris, don't forget to tread the pretty lawn of the Parc du Champ de Mars . At the foot of the Eiffel Tower, this green space dating from 1780 is the only park in Paris with free access day and night.

Offering a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower, the nearly 25-hectare park is the ideal place for a family picnic, or to admire the Iron Lady at night.
