The One Place in Paris I Can't Wait to Revisit with My Family

Three plus years of young ones underfoot is catching up with me as far as my wanderlust is concerned. Let's just say that my yearn for travel is through the roof these days.

Paris, especially, has been on my mind lately. There is one place in particular that was so fetching it seems almost a dream: Musée Nissim de Camondo.

If you're planning a visit to the city of light, I'd have to say that you should put this early 20th century private home high on your must-see list. Alas, our trip to Paris was 5 years ago, almost to the month, so who knows what the situation is today with crowds and visitors but when we visited, I felt like we were the only ones there. It was a magical feeling.

If we go back as a family, I'd like to wait until the kids are a bit older. I think the mansion-turned-museum would spark some really interesting discussions about historical differences, wealth and class, and the world wars of last century seen through a singular lens of one family's tragedies and loss.

If you have the chance to visit this remarkable place, be sure to also check out Parc Monceau, a charming, wooded, kid-centric Parisian spot. (Yes, really. Kids and Paris do hand and hand!) Go with a blanket to share a baguette and some cheese, après museum.
