Fall in love with Paris and experience the city of love – on a budget! Scrimping adventurers are in for a treat in one of the world's greatest cities.

Paris Pass

The Paris Pass will save you as much as 40 GBP when you explore this grand city. For only 85 GBP, the Paris Pass will give you two days of unlimited access to public transportation as well as great deals in restaurants and shopping discounts in some of Paris’ best boutiques. The pass allows you to admire art in some of the best museums and enjoy the city’s attractions, without having to stand in long ticket lines. And what’s best is it comes with a free gift from one of France’s best perfumeries.

No Pass? Enjoy Freebies!

The Paris Pass sounds like a dream for a price, but if you’re on an even smaller budget, you can skip the pass, and enjoy the city for FREE. Museums like the Musee D’Orsay and Centre Pompidou are free for those 18 years and below. On the first Sunday of each month, admission is waived at the Louvre, the national museum of France. The Musee Dapper, on the other hand, offers free admission on the last Wednesday of every month. Other museums you can check out for free are the Musee Cernuschi and the Musee Cognacq-Jay. In March through December, you can enjoy free weekly fashion shows at the Galeries Lafayette.

Take in the culture of Paris when you navigate through its neighborhoods or take a stroll in its public parks. You can also enjoy the fab fashion on display when you window shop or enjoy free games at Le Petit Ney. Ice skating in Paris is also free, but if you don’t have your skates on hand, you will have to rent. In the summer, everybody can enjoy free movies at Parc de la Villete which showcases a number of kid friendly attractions. And if you happen to drop by on the 21st of June, you can enjoy free performances at La Fete de la Musique.

A grumbling tummy will be very happy to discover that restaurants like Le Grenier, Le Tribal Café, La Chope du Chateau Rouge, Le Trois Freses, Le Tais et al serve couscous for free after 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays. If this doesn’t fill you, we recommend looking for the ‘tourist menus’ which come with set prices for a three-course meal. The prices are cheaper than ordering from the a la carte menu. And finally, what is the city of love without taking a trip to the Eiffel Tower? Put together a sandwich and enjoy a picnic underneath where Paris is just waiting for you to fall in love with it.
