Where to see animals in Paris and Ile-de-France?

The favorite outing of children
Seeing animals in Paris is very simple! There are plenty of opportunities to see feathered, naked, scaled animals... If the weather is nice...to the zoological parks. There are two in Paris: the Zoological Park of Paris (formerly Zoo de Vincennes) in the 12th and 13th centuries. the menagerie of Garden of plants...in the fifth. On Saturday or Sunday, go to the farm of Paris. We love it with toddlers and it's free. Or more unusual, dairy donkey breeding in 94, a really nice place with kids. For those who live in East of Paris, Attilly Wood Zoo. will make the youngest happy.
In rainy weather or if it's chilly, aquariums are a very good place to see animals in Paris and it's a great idea for a family outing on weekends, Wednesdays or during school holidays. Enjoy from our discounted rates at the Aquarium of Paris (up to -32% discount)
