Given the chance, you must see Paris! It has the magic to wow you every time. With a unique and thriving city life, it’s one of those places that makes you sad to leave because there really is nowhere else like it. Known for being the birthplace of famous works of art, fashion houses, and architectural wonders, it is a boldly romantic city full of charm and wonder.
Accomodation– average of 100-200€ but its Paris and you never know! To be on the safe side book well in advance. Even booking only a month before could cost you a pretty penny. We also recommend doing a little research on where to stay in Paris before you go.
Food– budget around 30-100€ per day. There are certain delicacies that the Parisians are known for, such as the classic French baguette or macarons or croissants or French cheese or onion soup or beef bourguignon. My point is, indulge in the rich cuisine Paris has to offer as much as you can!
Transportation– go for public transport! There are navigo passes called ‘Paris Visite’ that are valid for up to 5 days and do not require a photo or ID like passes for longer stays. Be aware that your passes must be inserted in the automatic barriers in the metro and RER before you can access the train platform. All transportation ticket info for this and other available passes is available online.
Suggested daily budget– 161€ per day.
I have to admit, it’s hard to put Paris’ beauty into words, you just have to see to believe. Just as a tip, do try learning a few words in French beforehand. The locals like to see when tourists try to learn their language and will probably react in a more friendly manner.
