Free things to do in Paris


The pseudo-Parisian village of Montmartre has everything from bars and food to the overgrown cemetery and vintage shops, particularly if you avoid the over crowded Place du Tertre where the majority of people congregate. The view is pretty great from the top, but don't ignore the, arguabley more interesting, nooks and crannies!

Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

Upon first sight, the facade of this museum is pretty imposing and something you'll probably all recognise. However, the impressive works of art you'll find inside are just as much of a treat with works of art by Delaunays and Fautrier with styles that range from art deco to cubism.

Square du Vert-Galant

For a little taste of the bohemian feel of the Paris of the 1920's then Square du Vert-Galant is the cloest you're gonna get! It's located on the western tip of the Île de la Cité surrounded by water and in the summer you'll find people chilling on the grass, watching the boats go by.

About Paris

Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It is internationally recognized as a city of romance and culture, with stunning architectural features such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. Many tourists also come for the food, with hundreds of high-quality restaurants serving traditional French food. Strolls along the Seine river are just one of the thousands of little pleasures Paris offers among its more major attractions. Although the Mona Lisa may appear to be Paris’ headlining act in a grand splendor of magnificent artwork and majestic museums, it’s the city’s bohemian atmosphere, creative influence and one-of-kind architecture that truly makes Paris a destination worth visiting.
