The gentle River Seine rambles through the city, flanked by stately museums, centuries-old churches, and blocks of Rococo- and Neoclassic-design architecture, further enhanced by cascading trees and glowing streetlamps.
BUDGET during the Paris trip
Paris Museum Pass
This is a prepaid card that gets you access to over 70 museums and monuments around Paris. A two-day one is 42 EUR, a two-day pass is only 56 EUR, and a six-day pass is only 69 EUR. This is perfect for the museum hopper and for anyone that wants to save money and get ahead in line. Since most people visit lots of museums in the city, you’re pretty much guaranteed to save money.
This is a super-sized version of the Paris Museum Pass and is for people who are going to be doing heavy sightseeing in a short period of time. You can purchase a two-day pass for ü117, a four-day pass for ü173, or a six-day pass for ü210. It includes a TON of sights, the ability to skip lines, and a free hop-on, hop-off bus tour (in addition to everything in the Paris Museum Pass).
Free museum admission
All national museums are free admission on the first Sunday of every month. If you happen to hit this day, be aware of potentially large crowds and long lines.
