Great free things to do in Paris while you are on budget

 

Déli-Cieux – Le Printemps, Paris, France

Take the lift to the top floor of the Printemps department store. There is a nice rooftop terrace open to the public. And the entrance is free. Only a few people know about it so there might not be as many tourists like near Eiffel tower. This is a great spot to take a nice rest while enjoying a breathtaking panorama view of the most prestigious monuments of Paris.

Galeries Lafayette Haussmann

Another stunning, beautiful view can be experienced while you go to the top floor of The Galleries Lafayette terrace. It is not far away from the previous Deli Cieux – Le Printemps so you can easily discover both terraces one after the other. You can also sit down to one of the many lounge chairs and sunbathe during hot summer days.

NOTRE Dome
Go with Victor Hugo footsteps, and visit Cathedral Notre Dome which is a very charming lovely chapel from the 12th century. It is best to come to the cathedral in the morning, when is opening, or the evening before closing. Waiting, in the queue however, is not boring, there will be many crafty businessmen, who will try to sell you some souvenirs, especially small key rings “Eiffel Tower”. Do not forget to bargain and again bargain at least the half price.

Rue Denoyez& Parade Belleville Rue Denoyez

Is an urban art lover’s dream with so many street arts packed into one little street. Take a walk and explore the rest of the Belleville neighbourhood which is much urbane than other parts of Paris.

Romantic evening in Paris through the stairs of Sacré-Coeur

Do not miss the evening sitting on the front steps of the temple Sacré Coeur. In addition to stunning views of the illuminated night time of Paris, you will experience the unique atmosphere. There is a meeting spot for young people in particular. Often young people are  playing on guitar, drinking wine and enjoying Parisian life. From the Sacré-Coeur, then you can walk through the narrow streets of Pigalle, the streets of sin, the MoulinRouge, but also between small restaurants and sushi bars, where you can have a nice glass of wine.

Printemps

Another highlight can be a visit of Printemps, which is a Fashion store consists of three buildings with 25 floors. In addition, (if you want) you can purchase from more than 300 fashion brands, you can try some French delicacies in one of seven local restaurants.

Bois de Vincennes park- Paris 

The biggest Parisian park, actually nor in Paris but located not far away on the eastern edge of Paris. This popular park forest is in fact, unpopulated and therefore is not considered part of the city. Bois de Vincennes is almost three times larger than Central Park in New York, and four times larger than Hyde Park in London. If you’re going there, make sure to also visit the Château de Vincennes – A massive royal castle and the favourite residence of the monarch.

Centre Pompidou

Great, modern art museum,and industrial building, with great location, situated directly in the heart of Paris’s Les Halles district. On the top floor you have a panorama view of central Paris so this is an another great place to admire the beautiful roofs details.The entry  under 26 is for free, and every first Sunday of each month is free. Otherwise 3 EUR. But for sure worth to visit . For more info click here
