As one of the most popular and most visited cities in Europe, Paris can be a bit pricey. Unless you happen to be under the age of 26 with a student card and/or a European passport you might be spending a few hundred bucks on entry fees alone.
Paris is a beautiful and luxurious city but it doesn’t have to be pricey. If you are under the age of 26 and have a student card and/or European passport you are able to visit almost all of the cities must see attractions including the Louvre, Versailles among others with no entrance fee.
In case you don’t have a student card and you are under the age of 26, I recommend getting one online from International Student Identity Card (ISIC). They are accepted almost everywhere and provide certain discounts as well.
Here is a list of a few places that let you in for free with the proper identification.
1. The Louvre2. Palace of Versailles3. Mussé d’Orsay4. Arc de Triomphe5. Notre-Dame de Paris: The Towers and The Crypt
6. Mussé de l’Armée InvalidesThere’s many more places that offer free entry as well as reduced tickets, make sure to always ask so you can take advantage of saving a few bucks.
And remember whatever you don’t spend on entry fees to museums, you can spend it on delicious croissants, crêpes, cheese and macaroons.
