Destinations / Europe

Paris is a must-see destination and one that retains its charm no matter how many times you are lucky enough to return. Here’s how to see it on a budget.


Start the day as the locals do and grab a pastry or two from the local boulangerie for around $1.50 each. Pair it with a quick coffee at the bar of the local café ($1.40) and you’ve got yourself breakfast for less than $5.


Suitably fortified, get yourself to the Marais district and stroll the streets around the Place des Vosges, the Marché des Enfants Rouges and Rue Vielle du Temple. Here you will find some great fashion for sale, as well as amazing people watching if you can’t afford to buy.


For lunch head over the river to La Palette, a historic café-restaurant where you can eat a wonderful croque madame — a sandwich with ham, cheese and a fried egg — for $11.


Cross back over the river to visit the world-famous Louvre art museum ($17 entry) or head to the Sacre Coeur church at Montmartre for the best view over the city (free), if the weather is good.


Settle down for a traditional apero, or evening drink, at Chez Prune (drinks around $4) on the side of the Canal Saint Martin, and then head for dinner at Bistro des Oies for a treat meal ($35).
