The great thing about dragging your three kids to Paris in winter? There is much to do inside! And no, thankfully, it didn’t rain the entire time. On this day, we took some obligatory photos by the Iron Asparagus before heading to the L’Aquarium de Paris (more commonly called “CineAqua” as it shows kids’ movies all day) located between our perch here at the Trocadero and the bridge to the Eiffel Tower behind us.
Sure, it would have been nice to see Paris when it sizzles, and take a romp through the fountains by the Louvre and Tour Eiffel like the kids pictured in our travel guidebook, but we had Paris without the crowds! In fact, when we called on the Eiffel Tower that evening, we waited a mere 5 minutes to ascend! Which brings me back to the next Ask Shelly question I’m working on… stay tuned!
