Budget and sightseeing strategy for one month in Paris

Jump to last reply

I'll be staying at my brother's apartment in Paris for one month this coming May. I've only been to Paris once before on a very short visit. Planning to explore it in depth this time.

I set aside $150 for sightseeing, $70 for the one month Navigo pass, and $100 for a splurge meal at Septime or another Michelin starred restaurant.(some offer a lunch menu for less than 50€)

1-Do you think $50/day for food will be adequate? I'm planning to eat out at lunch only at simple bistros. I will have breakfast and dinner at home.

2-Also,how should I go about sightseeing? Should I buy the six-day museum pass and see the major sights on the first week? Or should I forget the pass and book my museum tickets online?

Thanks in advance
