See Paris on a Budget

  1. 1. 15 See Paris On A Budget 15th, September 2012 Millions of tourists from all parts of the globe diverge on Europe’s most iconic capitals every year, and the popularity of the short city break is showing no sign of decreasing. Thanks to a dramatic collection of historic buildings, instantly recognisable monuments and eye-catching backdrops, these beautiful destinations continue to feature on the must-visit lists of a huge range of travellers. However, because of the generally high prices in many cities there is a significant proportion of the tourist community who never manage to visit. The costs of travel, accommodation and food mean those who are struggling to make ends meet will invariably hold onto their holiday euros and make tracks to cheaper places instead. But it doesn’t have to be this way, of course. If you’re planning a trip to Paris in the coming months, here are four tips to help you remain within budget - Top Tourist Attraction In Paris | Paris For Less Travel to Ireland Use the subway to get around The centre of Paris is home to most of the landmarks you’ll want to see, and the best way to get from A to B in this stunning destination is via the Metro. The city’s underground railway network is cheap, clean, safe (especially during the day) and easy to negotiate. With sixteen separate lines and more than 300 stations, it’s network covers all neighbourhoods, so you’ll be able to get from anywhere to anywhere in no time at all. And as an added bonus, the

It’s an expression of individuality, a statement of character and in many cases a national celebration. So if you’re tempted to head for a McDonalds in order to save money, don’t. Even if a Big Mac is the cheapest option (and it often is), you can have that anywhere. When you’re in the centre of Paris, you’ll struggle to find restaurants that offer cheap meals to those on a budget, but if you head to the suburbs you’ll find plenty.

A good option is to buy a ticket for hop-on, hop-off sightseeing buses, because you can travel on one at any time during the day to enjoy a tour of the city’s many charms. And because you can use the ticket over and over again during the allocated time period, you can treat the buses as though they are part of the public transport network. Book a hotel beforehand Many Parisian hotels have a set room rate that is generally pretty inflexible, so if you plan to arrive and then look for accommodation you may be in for a rude awakening. If you book in advance, however, you should be able to find some superb bargains on the web. Like most major capitals, this city has hundreds of hotels for you to choose from, and at a wide range of prices, so be sure to shop around online before committing to a booking.
