Looking to give the kids some room to roam? You’ll love the largest public park in Paris, the Jardin du Luxembourg, covering a whopping 56 acres. The main attraction for kids is the centrally located Grand Bassin, in which garçons and filles alike rent small remote-controlled boats and set sail on the open waters. Afterwards, head for the marionette theater and don’t forget to stop and smell the roses — or any of the other hundred species in these flowered gardens.
