Backpacking Paris

France is one of the most popular destinations in Europe and at the very heart of France is Paris, the city of lights. This romantic city invites many tourists every year and the city does not care if you are wealthy or not. Paris has something to offer for every pocket and backpacking Paris is a wonderful way to see the city.

A mere two to three hour's trip from the UK will land you in this magical city. Depending on your budget, backpacking Paris need no longer be a cramped and uncomfortable experience. There are a variety of Hostels and short-term rental flats throughout the entire city. These are available at affordable rates, while still providing backpackers with a degree of comfort. It is, however, important to make sure that you book your preferred hostel before making your way to the city as this popular destination can become very busy during the summer, the best time for backpacking Paris. In terms of a backpacker's budget, online sites suggest a budget of around £60 a day, unless you plan on staying in a less comfortable hostel and living off baguettes and water.

Since 1848, Paris has been a popular tourist destination. With fantastic sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Cathedral of Notre Dame, there is no shortage of architectural marvels to see. However, Paris boasts even more culture in the many museums and art works that call it home, the most notable being the Louvre. If these sights do not attract you, you can immerse yourself in the cafe culture and experience French pastries and coffee. Whatever it is that attracts you to this magnificent city, Paris has something for every taste and budget.
