Things to do before coming to Paris
Here are some tips about what to do before coming to Paris. Planning your vacation is not only about what to see, but also about some things, you can actually do before packing your suitcase!
Things to know Before coming to Paris
- Flying in Paris is easier than you may think. Plan your vacation, and look for the best offer for low-cost flights to Paris. You may even find interesting combinations of flights and hotel offers, but I always suggest choosing a short rents apartment instead.
What about Paris airports? The city has 3 airports: Orly, Charles de Gaulle, and Beauvais. It doesn’t matter which you choose, you’ll always find a bus transport to Paris. You can even already buy your ticket for the bus from the airport to the city center online.
- Skip the lines buying a pass for museums. You can purchase it online or in the first museum you visit. I think that one of the bests in the Paris Museum Pass. But, if visiting museums is not your favorite activity this is not the right choice. I suggest buying tickets in advance even if you want to visit just a few museums. Just to be sure of not spending all day at the ticket office!
- Buy a pass for transports. You’ll move around the city using Paris metro network. It is super organized and functional. Trains run endlessly, and once you have the metro pass, you can get where you want. The best pass surely is Paris Navigo. You can buy it online, at the airport, or at the station.
- If you don’t have so much time to think about where to go to buy souvenirs, go straight to Montmartre! You’ll find large and small stores that sell souvenirs at much lower prices than in the city center. Plus, here you can find souvenirs that are worthy of the name, true memories of the city!
