Paris Sight for Free, where to go
If you ask someone who does not know the city very well which is the best Paris sight for free, maybe they can’t say anything to you! That’s because everyone usually thinks that the best Paris view is from the top of the Eiffel Tower. That’s true: it is unique experience, indeed. But you can also enjoy the Paris sight for free, from other places that are even higher than the Tour Eiffel!
Even if going on the top of the Eiffel Tower is an experience that you have to try if you have enough money and time, note down the alternatives to enjoy Paris sight for free.
Paris sight for free, away from the Eiffel Tower
What I like about the places where you can enjoy the view of Paris from above for free is that you can also enjoy it in solitude or with few people. The Eiffel Tower, as the main attractions of Paris, is always very crowded. The two best alternatives for the Paris sight for free are:
- Trocadero Square. From Trocadero Square you will see the Eiffel Tower too because it is quite high. It is in the arrondissement 16 and you can get there by getting off at Trocadero metro station. It is one of the best area to take a walk in one of the most Parisian scenarios! From there you will enjoy the sight of the city from above and of the Eiffel Tower too.
- Montmartre or Parc de Belleville. Another option is going to Montmartre or in Belleville district. You can go in Montmartre by funicular and to Belleville by tram. From there you will be sure to have enough space to enjoy all the experience without being with too many people. Plus, if you go to Montmartre you will have the chance to visit some of the best parks of Paris and the Sacre Coeur church. In Belleville, you will see a fragment of the most peripheral but fascinating Paris.
