There is no escaping the romance of Paris. The metropolis has been dubbed as the undisputed capital of literature, culture and cuisine in the world. Winding alleys, trendy “gastro-bistros”, tiny boutiques and corner tabacs, sprawling museums and a mélange of stately boulevards are just a few of what you can see as you explore the city.
When To Book A Flight?
Regardless of where you are from, it is always best to book a flight as early as possible. This way, you can save more money because it will give you enough time to look for a cheap flight to Paris. It is also advisable to avoid
popular flying days, what they often dubbed as “peak season”, because airfares tend to increase during such season. Remember the concept of supply and demand? 🙂
And also, it is best to fly very early or very late. During normal business hours, very early and very late flights are cheaper. A lot of people do not want to fly during such times that is why airlines choose to offer these flights at a lower cost. Moreover, follow airlines on social media like Facebook and Twitter. With this, you will be able hear about insider deals and flight discounts.
Where To Stay
Yes, Paris is one of the expensive cities in Europe. However, you can find cheaper hotels in the city. If you want to save on accommodation, it is best to avoid tourist and central areas. You may look for an affordable hotel or hostel in more suburban areas. For your convenience, choose an accommodation near the subway and buses.
Whether you are with friends, family or your special someone, the most important thing to do in the city of love is to enjoy it and savor its beauty. Paris is an open air museum. One of the cheapest ways of enjoying it is by walking down the metropolis. Explore the 7th and 16th arrondissement to witness Art Noveau buildings, shops and streets. If you wanna feel the romantic ambiance of the city, how about reserving an evening boat tour on the Seine to view a magical and unique scenery of the whole metropolis, rocked by the river?
Where To Shop
Paris is home to some of the high-end fashion brands in the world. As a matter of fact, it is the capital of luxury brands. However, you may also find some great stuff in the city even if you are on a budget. Every Sunday, you can visit the Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, the largest flea market in Paris. It is like a huge oasis of second-hand items – from clothes, accessories to antiques.
