Moving around Paris at low cost
Visit Paris on foot
Paris is not, apart from the periphery at rush hour, the most crowded city in the world in its most touristic parts. And curiously enough, its history has enabled it to develop a whole network of walking tours in all its districts from the banks of the Seine to the covered passages via the Pont des Arts. Stroll with your nose up, New Europe Tours offers you magnificent guided walks in Paris, accompanied by a free guide.
Paris tourist bus companies
These “bus tours”, such as Open Tour or Big Bus, sell tickets that allow you to visit the Paris you love with an explanatory commentary in your own language. But even better, you can get on and off the bus for a visit to a monument you are passionate about. Some tickets give you access to the bus and to museum visits, cruises on the Seine… In short, an enchantment, for a few dozen euros per person.
Free admission to Parisian museums
Dates to remember
Do museums have a pricing policy for art loving tourists? Of course, for your greatest pleasure!

Free museums for young people
Most of the permanent collections of the National Museums are free of charge for young people under the age of 18 and for EU citizens under 26. This free admission applies every day, without exception. Temporary exhibitions, on the other hand, are generally subject to a charge.
