For lovers of leisure

If travelling as a family, theme parks are an attraction that both adults and children will appreciate. Paris has two very important parks: Eurodisney and Parc Astérix.

If Paris is the aim of your visit, this is a trip that your children will appreciate. And if the opposite is true; if the aim of your visit is one of these parks (and you can benefit, depending on the time of the year, from interesting travel + accommodation tourist packages), then try to include a trip to Paris!!!

Disneyland Paris

Eurodisneyland is situated in the Val de Marne, close to Paris (32 Km).

It is an enormous theme park which features the great classics of Walt Disney. You can spend a weekend in the huge park and spend the night in one of its 7 hotels. This world of leisure is made for everyone, and for all ages.

Eurodisneyland is made up of 7 villages, each with their own identity. For example, if you like cowboys and adventures, the Adventureland village is right for you.

Your day will be both entertaining and attractive, and in the evening you can attend the magical parade or one of the concerts.

To get to Eurodisneyland from Paris, you can go by car or by public transport:

By car: motorway A4 (direction Metz - Nancy), then junction 14 to Val d'Europe/Parc Disneyland.

Parc Astérix

If you are fond of theme parks, you can also enjoy a typically French park, Parc Astérix.
