City trip to Paris
Montmartre and Sacré Coeur
If you want to discover the real Paris then a visit to Montmartre is highly recommended. This is the art district and is bustling 24 hours a day. Have your portrait sketched in Place du Tertre (or just watch others being done), wander through the small streets with lovely boutiques, you might be tempted by sweet treats from the amazing patisseries. Right next to Place du Tertre is Sacré Coeur, one of the most beautiful basilicas in the world. On the steps that lead up to the basilica you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the city.
A magical fairy tale world and a true paradise for children. Enjoy days of adventure, exciting attractions and great shows. Disneyland Paris is the best known theme park in Europe and is made up of two parts, the fairy tale park Disneyland® Park and movie park Walt Disney Studios®. The parks are right next to each other. Disneyland® Paris is just 25km from our campsite Le Chêne Gris, a 20 minute drive.
Marché aux Puces de Clignancourt
Without a doubt this will be one of the biggest flea markets you have ever seen. The market consists of as many as 13 separate markets, both outdoor and indoor. And what’s for sale? Well everything under the sun - from jewellery to antiques, vintage clothes to furniture. If you want a break from all the shopping then you can relax in one of the many cafés or restaurants. You can get a map of the entire market at the tourist offices, which will come in very handy as it's easy to get lost.
Eating with children
There are several well-known food chains that are perfect for children. You can choose from fast food restaurants, Italian restaurants with delicious pizzas and of course the famous creperies. Of course you can also enjoy delicious croissants and “pain au chocolat”. Relax in one of the many gardens or parks and enjoy a picnic sur l’herbe!
Some tips about eating and drinking in Paris:
- Bear in mind that drinks are more expensive to have outside on the terrace than inside.
- There are wide price differences for food in Paris so always check the menu in advance so you won't get a nasty surprise when you get the bill.
- Parisians generally have dinner late in the evening so keep in mind that many places don't open until 19.00.
