Beating the Euro in Paris (and the rest of France)

Jump to last reply

((F)) “My ambition is to have beautiful encounters, not to make money.” - Actress Juliette Binoche

While she may be referring to her acting ambitions, I think Ms. Binoche is on to something. However, I aspire to have both beautiful encounters and "not worry about money" the next time I travel to France, her native country.

A few weeks ago we had a thread running full of tips for stretching the Euro in Italy. There were a ton of great tips there--some of which will be quoted in the next Fodor's Rome and the next Fodor's Florence, Tuscany, & Umbria guide.

So it's France's turn---please share your best budget tips, top value recommendations, and suggestions for budget savvy trips (both short and long) outside of the country's popular capital. Editors Rachel and Caroline will be by later; a few of you might have met them at last year's GTG in New Jersey.

Hopefully this will be a valuable resource for everyone planning trips there this summer. Here's wishing you all beautiful encounters that don't break the bank.
