Hi all,

My husband and I, along with our 2 boys (ages 12 and 9) will be spending 2 days in Paris and 3 days in Nice.  Wanted to get your top 4-5 suggestions of must-see, must-do things in both locations. It is our first time in France, so are looking to see more of the city and surrounding areas. We will have a car in Nice. We also love seeing small villages and picturesque locations. (We are not planning on visiting any musuems). Would also love some suggestions on fun activities for our 2 boys (but not all day events, like disney etc).

We will be there in April 2017.

Many thanks in advance!

Be sure to have warm clothes.  A few years ago, we were there the last week of April and first week in May, and Paris got pretty chilly and windy.  I dressed in layers--shirt, cotton sweater, fleece vest or jacket, and a windbreaker.  That way if it warmed up a bit in the afternoon, I could take off a layer or two. 

Even with all the layers, I was a little bit cold a couple of mornings when it was windy.

The boys might enjoy the sewers tour. Show them the movie of Les Miserables first. And you should take them up to the top of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower (of course). They might like seeing St. Chappelle---even for a "no museum" family, the stained glass windows there will blow their minds.

Pauline - can't seem to email you through this site, so here goes (apologies to OP): Your site is being majorly spammed by langdon and akbar and a bunch of other fake names from the same poster, ever since December (see India for example). Cleanup is needed.
