“Every second in the air in Paris is art.” ― Robert Black
These are the things I wish I knew before spending 1 day in Paris
🗺️ Don’t take the bus from Charle de Gaule Airport to the City Centre
Didn’t know it back then, but the bus ticket costs 17 euros. My heart stopped a little bit when I realized how foolish I was, but really, I had no other choice at the time.
What I recommend, is taking the Train instead. It costs 10 euros and its arrival spot is actually inside the metro. From there you can go wherever you want.
🗺️ You don’t have the chance to visit the same place twice
I was so frustrated when I got down the bus, that I didn’t realize, that not only I finally was in Paris, but also the bus stop was near really famous sights like Arc de Triomphe. Of course I grabbed my camera and took some nice shots. Don’t miss the chance to capture any moment in this city. Paris is too big to be in the same place twice.
🗺️ Download the Paris Transportation App
It really saved my life. Paris’ transportation is just chaos. Once you understand how the app works, everything will be so easy. Trust me ❤
🗺️ Cheap hostels could be found in expensive areas
Our hostel was a really unexpected experience. Truth is I booked it randomly. Who would have told me that it would be located in one of the best areas in Paris?
MIJE was the hostel we stayed. It is located in Rue du Fauconnier. We payed only 25 euros per night.
🗺️ Nights can be cheap and unforgettable
The first night we were so tired. A beer and somekind of fast food sounded like a really good idea.
If you are patient you can find places which offer really cheap beer. I payed about 5 euros for mine.
Food was an easy one. Kraft Hot Dog, was also really cheap. About 4 euros. You can find it near the metro station of Hotel de Ville.
Sometimes you like art.
But sometimes no.
That’s how I feel about Paris.
