Paris Sight for Free, where to go

paris sight for freeIf 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.
  • Tours

  • My Tips

     Take always small change with you! If you will need a public bathroom, you will probably pay 0.50 € to enter. 

     

    Remember that floor numbers aren't the same of U.S. ones. In Europe we have ground floor / floor 0. It is the corresponding of the 1st floor in U.S.!

     

     French people are nationalists: try to speak few French words. You will make them very happy!

     

     Check the weather forecast in advance so you will know what to put in your luggage!

     

     Even if they say it will be sunny all the time, take your umbrella with you anyway.

     

     Read my article about transports pass to know which one is the best for you!

     

     If you want to buy something very luxurious, go to Lafayette Galleries.

     

     Don't be worried about the need for a car in Paris. Taxis and Uber are a lot!

     

     For your safety, provide you a travel insurance
