Paris On A Budget

There are plenty of ways to explore Paris on a budget when you follow our tricks and tips to help you plan a visit.  Opt to walk up the  Eiffel Tower for a cheaper option or take advantage of FREE ENTRY Sundays are just two of the ways to enjoy Paris on the cheap this season, (more information below).

Follow our guide to the Eiffel Tower packed with cheap ticket options including free entry!

 

Eiffel Tower in paris

 

1. The Paris Pass

Invest in a Paris Pass that offers discounted entry to 60+ top visitor attraction including the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe & Musee d’Orsay.  Passes includes free entry on public transport around the city too and are available for visits between 2 – 6 days that offers substantial savings off standard price tickets.  For those that plan to visit a number of the main attractions around the city, this could offer you value for money.

More information available at the Paris Pass – entry to 60+ top attractions.

2. Eiffel Tower on a Budget

It is cheaper to walk part way up the Eiffel Tower rather than use the lifts.  Not only does this give you an alternative perspective of national treasure but saves you money too.  Take the steps to the second floor and then if you’re bent on getting to the top, you can upgrade your ticket to the top, (this still works out a cheaper option).  More information available within our Eiffel Tower Guide.

Alternatively why not view the Eiffel Tower from the ground and save on admission charges altogether.  Plenty of visitors opt to pack a picnic and find a space within the Parc du Champ de Mars, (located directly below the Eiffel Tower), to watch the sun go down as the Eiffel Tower lights up before your eyes.

Luxembourg Gardens

 

4. Paris Parks

There are plenty of beautiful parks around Paris and if you want to do as the Parisians do & take in the atmosphere or a game of boules, head for the open space. Our favourite has to be Jardin du Luxembourg that is set in the heart of the city and evokes thoughts of a bygone age with a boating lake, (you can even hire a sailing boat), an adventure playground, old fashioned swings and even a puppet show. Whilst there are small charges in place for many of these activities, it’s a great way to enjoy an afternoon in the heart of Paris on a budget!

More details available at Jardin du Luxembourg.

5. Velib Bikes in Paris

Do as the Parisians do and enjoy Paris on a velib bike that is a cheap way to get around Paris on a budget, (the first 30 minutes of any journey is FREE).  By navigating your way around the city on your bike, it gives you a unique view of the city as well as saving you money on transport charges.
