What to expect in Paris

The city of lights is a stunning city for all of the senses: incredible hot chocolates and pastries, home of the Moulin Rouge, the Louvre, and the Notre Dame. However, these epic sights come with a price tag: this city's not cheap, and it's much more expensive than Shannon. Dining out and coffees on the run will be one of your biggest expenses, but you can eat cheap by exploring some of the smaller arrondissements, especially around the student areas and Montmartre.
