Paris Insider tips
1. My first top tip for visitors is that entrance to museums is free every first Sunday of the month! Yup! Many cathedrals and churches you may not have to pay to get in anyway however, for those of you who are interested attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe and climbing the towers of the Notre Dame and the Sacré Coeur are all free! Happy days and budget holidays!
2. Entrance to the fabulous Louvre art museum is already reasonably priced as it is however, should you still be under the tender age of 25 and just can’t get enough of Parisian culture and arts you’re in luck. Every Friday night between 6 pm and 10 pm, all those under 25 can access the museum for free.
3. In some cases (not all), on presentation of a student card regardless of where you are from you can receive a student discount on some Paris attractions. This also applies to over 55s who on request may also receive a discount.
4. For those of you who love museums and the arts and this is the way you plan to spend your holiday, there are discount cards available to save you money on entrance fees and travelling.
