The Absolute Best Free Attractions in Paris

Ah, Paris. There’s a reason it’s on many travel bucket lists. It’s beautiful, historic, and there’s a nearly endless supply of things to do and iconic sites to visit…but it can be hard on the wallet.

If you’re trying to save a few dollars (or euros) on your trip, try a few of these awesome free attractions in Paris.

The Eiffel Tower is lit up after sunset (which is really nice), but then there is a five-minute sparkling light show that I personally think is spectacular.

No Paris itinerary is complete without seeing the Champs-Élysées, one of the most famous streets in the world.

Stroll the Champs-Élysées

Use the underground pedestrian walkway (near the metro station) to get safely from the top of the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe.

Get up close and personal with the Arc de Triomphe

Another one of the great free activities in Paris is to take half a day and walk through the historic center of the city.
