One of the cities that has always been at the top of the most expensive city lists is Paris, which has very high prices in everything but in recent years it has become a cheaper city thanks to the fact that they have dropped and that there are many free activities, especially in summer.
If you are going to travel to "City of Light", I recommend you inform yourself before of the many free activities they have so that you can spend as little as possible. In the subway there are a lot of posters with free entertainment and they also put out a newspaper once a week called Pariscope and in which there is a list of all the activities in the city (it costs less than half a euro). Take note of some of the free activities in Paris:
– Beaches: They are only in summer but they are wonderful, I was in one last year and I loved it. They do them on the banks of the Seine so you can find them almost throughout the city, in addition to there are also various concerts and sports. In Bassin de la Villette, to the northwest of the city, they have one that they have put an artificial wave to surf. A joy.
– Cinema: This is not free but there are very low prices in the theaters in Parc de la Villette where every night, except Mondays, there are screenings in the original version. In fact, in the Villette area there are many free and very cheap activities.
– Museums: The entrance is free in all the museums that the City Council manages, which are 14. They are open every day except Mondays and holidays and you will be able to enjoy for free the museum collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts of Le Petit Palais, Museum of Modern Art, Carnavalet Museum or the Jean Moulin Museum. You will only be charged admission if you go to any of the temporary exhibitions, although it is always a very low fee.
