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.
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.
Use the underground pedestrian walkway (near the metro station) to get safely from the top of the Champs-Élysées to 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.
The memorial is located on the east end of Île de la Cité and is free for all visitors.
