Paris is a truly beautiful city, if not one of the most beautiful on the planet. It’s a place that men and women from all over the globe try to visit, and has been an exceptionally popular holiday destination for many, many years. For many who wish to go, money is regarded as a problem. Well, the flight can be pricey depending on where you live, but the flight and having a place to stay are the main things to be worried about. You may be glad to hear that the majority of of the greatest things you can do in Paris are completely free. Below is a compiled list of some of the best things you can do in Paris without needing to search hard into your pockets.

1. The Eiffel Tower – Ignore the fact it costs a fair amount of money to go to the top part of the Eiffel Tower. It’s definitely something to be admired from the outside. This costs you nothing, and you certainly do not have to wait in a long queue simply to view it, right? You can have a picnic with a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower, and you’ll be enjoying one of France’s finest attractions at a price of nothing. People travel the entire world to see it, and with the travel and hotel costs aside, it doesn’t have to set you back anything to take a look at.

2. The Seine River – You can view this famous river in all of its glory without it costing you a penny. The Seine River is much more than just a river of water. You might have heard talk of the “Left Bank” and “Right Bank”. The Left Bank is the artier side of the river where artists such as Picasso himself lived. Originally, things were cheap in the Left Bank, and the Right Bank was the wealthier side, which is brimming with big businesses and banks. It’s still a wealthy area, but both sides are nowadays. It doesn’t mean you can not stroll through either of them at no cost, though.

3. Notre Dame Cathedral – With this being one of Paris’ finest attractions, it’s a must-see. To go inside the church, it does not cost you anything. Yet again you get to experience something so beautiful, without a price! It also looks fantastic from the outside, as you will discover when first approaching it. Going to the treasury or climbing the tower does cost money, but you can experience the cathedral enough without doing those things, if you don’t want to pay.

4. Free Galleries Lafayette Fashion Shows – Paris is big on fashion. It is a big part of the culture, and can be very fascinating even if you’re not usually into fashion. There are free weekly fashion shows every week, usually on Fridays.

So there you have it, a summary of free attractions in Paris that you could enjoy. They are for certain the very best ones
