12 Free things to do in Paris:

Let’s be honest, free things are what every traveler anticipates or books for. I mean, no matter if you are a budget traveler or a traveler without a budget.. for us ‘free’ sounds like a gift. So for those of you who are planning a trip to Paris we’ve compiled this list, of everything you can do without shelling out a franc

6578773_700b_v1The Love Wall Forget the Pont Des Art and move your way to the Love Wall, a giant wall were ‘I love you’ is written in hundreds of different languages. The Love Wall can be found in Montmartre at Place des Abbesses.


La Promenade Plantée Similar to the one in New York, but then in Paris. La Promenade Plantée is a 4,5 kilometer trail decorated with trees and plants leading you through Paris. Definitely worth a visit and definitely worth a walk!

Picnic-at-Eiffel-TowerPicnic at the Eiffel Tower – Sure, taking the elevator (or climbing the stairs) to the top costs a pretty penny, but there’s no charge for enjoying a view of one of the world’s most iconic structures. But bonus points if you’re picnicking in the public green spaces around the tower – cheap eats and a great view? Priceless.


Notre Dame I am guessing that this Paris-highlight is on the list of every traveler who comes to see the city. Good to know: the Notre Dame is completely free to enter. However keep in mind that it does cost you money to climb the towers of the Notre Dame.


Paris Greeters Tours The Paris Greeters are residents who you can contact (via the website) for short tours of certain parts of the city, and it’s entirely free.

Pere-Lachaise_Aux_MortesCimitière du Père Lachaise (Père Lachaise Cemetery) Not only do the old Paris cemeteries like Pere Lachaise and the Montparnasse Cemetery let you get some quasi-celebrity sightings with all the famous people buried in them, they’re just creepy-cool places to wander. But for a lot of tourists the Cimitière du Père Lachaise does make the list and for them it is good to know that this is free to see.

Jardin des Tuileries The famous park in front of museum Le Louvre. Probably one of the best spots to sit and relax between your busy schedule. Jardin des Tuileries also hosts a lot of events like free fashion shows and events – so make sure to check out what’s happening before you leave to Paris!


Paris Flea Markets Sure, doing any shopping will set you back a few euro, but walking through Paris’ many outdoor markets and enjoying the people-watching they offer won’t cost a thing.

Musée-d'Art-moderne-de-la-Ville-de-Paris-exterieur---630x405---©-OTCP-Amélie-Dupont---190-15Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris Ok, not the same as Centre Pompidou or the Louvre – but that is what makes it even nicer to visit. As this museum isn’t one of the top museums of Paris it means that there also less tourists which means you will be free to look around without pushing your way through the crowds. And while it isn’t one of the top museums doesn’t mean it isn’t good to visit!


Du Sacre Coeur Another church that will be on most tourists lists, and –surprise, surprise- completely free to enter. But just like at the Notre Dame climbing the dome or exploring the crypt does cost you some money. Many would argue that the steps in front of the Sacre Coeur church atop Montmartre offer some of the best views in the city, and it’s a view you’ll enjoy for free.


Jardin du Luxembourg This was the first French garden to be influenced by the Italian Baroque. The gardens, and the palace, were begun in 1612. With flea markets and free puppet shows its definitely worth a visit!


Maison de Victor Hugo Fans of the author will enjoy a visit to his apartment, which includes exhibits of first editions.
