Today were going to be talking to you about free things that you can do when you visit that beautiful city of Paris. I love visiting Paris because a lot of cities are really expensive to go in and see any of the sights but Paris is different, there are so many free and cheap things to do and were going to round up all of our favorites.
I recommend you do is go check out the cemeteries. Paris is renowned for those big gothic cemeteries Pere la Chaise is the first one you should go visit because it is the most famous there you can see the grave sites of the great Doors singer Jim Morrison Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaff, so there’s lots of places to walk around and look around the famous graves, but also check out all the other ones there.
Super interesting there are other cemeteries as well like the Montmartre cemetery and the Monteparnassecemetery so you’re not just stuck seeing one and they all have equally as exciting people to visit. And if death isn’t your scene while you’re in Paris make sure to check out the museum.
Many mediums in Paris offer free days once a month, like the (musÃ©e dOr) say here, on the first Sunday of every month you can get in for free. Did you know if you are 25 and younger and a part of the EU you can get into all museums for free but never fear if your old farts like us you can get into museums.
On the first Sunday of every month for free that would include the Louvre that would include muse dor say and it would include the Centre Pompidouso make sure that you check those out on the first Sunday of each month and also Paris has 14 city museums that you can visit for free at any time and this is Paris.
So if you’re going to a museum is going to be spectacular. Yeah, any museum is a good museum when you’re in Paris here a tip to help you save money whenever you see the emblem of Paris on a museum it means its free when you’re in Paris be sure to take advantage of the free churches like Notre Dame here. They’re absolutely beautiful inside and they’re free.
If you do want to go up into the bell tower or down to the vault there may be a small extra fee but just seeing the churches on their own is a grand and spectacular thing to do in Paris. For your next tip of Paris on the cheap come to Sacre-Couerits free to go in and you get this absolutely amazing view of Paris.
Were always looking for stunning views when you’re in Paris yes a lot of them like if you go up to the Eiffel power you have to pay but here a little bit if you had out the sacre-coeur to the steps of sacre-coeur and Montmartre you have what Icon sider one of the most beautiful views of the city. I am on the steps of Sacre Couerin Montmartre and it’s the best view of Paris, save for the Eiffel Tower or Monteparnasse,
But this view is free and while you’re there bring a bottle of wine you can drink some wine and have a picnic. When in Paris make sure to take advantage of free tours. They’re all over the place and it’s a great way to learn about the history of Paris. Just look up free walking tours in Paris on the internet and you’ll find ones that leave daily from the Montmartre area and the Latin Quarter you just join a group and they’ll take you around to see all the sights of the area.
I’ve got to say my favorite area of Paris is Montmartre, it’s the artists quarter so you can walk around, they have markets there and have artists performing their art they’re all daylong and really you really feel like you sort of step back in time when you’re in Montmartre.
Yeah there’s a lot of cafes so you can sit outside and sip a cappuccino there’s street performers everywhere and there’s a lot of museums that you can visit as well in Montmartre. And if you look closely you can see where a lot of film shots of famous scenes, yeah you can check out our blog theplanetd.com and check out our Paris movie walks, if you really want to see where some of the films that have been shot in Montmartre are.
Paris really is a walking city, you can really put on a lot of miles. I always find when were there, were putting on tons of miles just walking yeah there’s great just walking towards to do on your own you know definitely walking up the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. Which you can also get into for free the Arc de Triomphe it’s free to visit just as long as you don’t go up.
If you want to go up and see the city view there’s a fee but otherwise you can explore all of the ground and see the tomb of theun known soldier and check out the gorgeous archways. What’s another great walking tour area?
I think walking around Pont Neuf and along the Seine there, just even walking along there if you get these beautiful views and you get to really take in the grand architecture that Paris is known for. You don’t have to go into all these places and pay to actually see them just walking around will give you a feel for that je ne sais quoi, that you get in Paris taking a stroll along the seine is a perfect way to spend part of your day These vendors have been here for years.
I know it took David I four trips to Paris before we even went up the Eiffel Tower and we were always just happy to just gust and under it and look at it from the banks of the Seine and just take in all of the different views that you get from it from the city. Place de la Concorde, known for its executions during the French Revolution is also free to visit.
You can’t go to Paris without enjoying some music if you’re looking for something to do for free the music conservatory offers 300student performances a year good and you can get in and see them for free Radio France also offers a hundred and eighty free concerts a year at the Museum of Fine Arts.
And if you happen to be there between May in September you can do a little dancing with your love done on the left bank of Seine for free. And don’t worry they offer free tango lessons if you don’t know how. Paris is known for its fashion and while you can go and want loves along the Champs Elysees and check out all the great fashion there are free fashion shows that happen every Friday at the Galleries Lafayette so there you have it those are our Free Things to do in Paris.
