Looking for the best teen-approved things to do in Paris? Here are my tried and tested recommendations.

Start with the Eiffel Tower

"If you don't want to hear 'When can we visit the Eiffel Tower?' for the whole trip, it's good to check it off early — you'll see it many more times during your trip too"

Tour the Louvre

"Visiting the world's largest museum with a guide makes a big difference from wandering without a plan as you'll see all the highlights before anyone gets bored"

See the city by bike

"A fun alternative to a bus tour, plus you'll get to explore the nooks and crannies of the city that you might not find otherwise"

Explore the Catacombs

"The world’s largest underground graveyard, containing the bones of 6 million Parisians, is a fascinating piece of Paris' history — explore it if you dare"


"Paris is filled with iconic restaurants, both historic and TikTok-famous, as well as beautiful markets, colorful macarons, and Angelina's incredible hot chocolate"

Relax in Paris' parks

"The Tuileries Garden and Luxembourg Garden are stunning, central, and great for people watching, while the vast Bois de Vincennes and Bois du Boulogne are filled with nature and activities"


"Le Marais has the trendiest boutiques and the Champs-Élysées has the biggest brands, while luxury department stores like Galeries Lafayette are an experience in themselves"

Tour Paris Saint-Germain's stadium

"Catching a game or taking a behind-the-scenes stadium tour is a must for soccer fans, just be sure to call it football here, or le foot"

Get creative at a perfume workshop

"The department stores are bursting with French designer fragrances, but why not take it a step further by creating your own scent as a reminder of your trip?"
