Tips to Save Money while Visiting Paris
Visiting Paris can be a bit stressful, especially if you have never been there before. You will certainly wish that you had known a few things about this beautiful city before embarking on a journey to Paris. Remember that if you are in a rush, then you might not be able to cover some of the most famous tourist spots in the city.
Just like any other major city, Paris can also be a little pricey, particularly when you are a first timer who has no idea about the city. However, a little bit of efficient and careful planning before visiting Paris can certainly help you to save some of your hard-earned money. Below are a few tips on how to save money while you are visiting Paris.
Feast Away Lunch
It is true that food and Paris go hand in hand, but you can also find cheap and yummy pastries and baguette sandwiches everywhere in the city. Many famous restaurants in Paris offer fixed lunch menus, which are usually cheaper and you can enjoy them without making any reservations.
If you are visiting Paris for a few days, then you will certainly need a place to stay. We highly recommend you to pick a central hotel, as it will help you to avoid taking the metro. The metro is efficient and inexpensive but the cost will eventually add up. So, try to book a central hotel, as it will help you to save a lot of your money.
Plan the Nightlife
Make sure to do a little research on the nightlife of Paris, as it will certainly help you to take advantage of the happy hours. It is true that Paris isn’t as much as a party town when compared to New York or Berlin, but there are still a lot of things to do here at night. Drinks are significantly cheaper during happy hour specials, which usually last until 11:00 pm.
Plan your Museum Trips
Make sure to plan your museum trips and try to purchase a museum pass. Having a museum pass will help you to save a lot of your money. However, if you are planning to buy tickets for each of the museum trips, then we highly recommend you to visit the Musée d’Orsay and Louvre during the night openings, as it will help you to save some money on cheaper tickets.
