How to enjoy Paris on a low/moderate budget?

Jump to last reply

I'm returning to Paris! Yay! But this time my pockets are even smaller than the last time so looking for fun and free, low/moderate budget things to do and eat. I can only go all out with one nice dinner approx 100 USD. If you have a special place in mind I'd really appreciate knowing about it! The Opera Garnier was so much fun to visit and I told myself the next time I go back I'm seeing a ballet so, voila! It'll be my first ballet ever so any tips to experience this well? I like operas too. I had the best time at Cafe Marly's drinking hot chocolate poured from a small silver pot. Then I moved to Irish coffee. I stayed so long I ended up getting dinner too and a half a bottle of wine and it was fantastic! The place even had little stools for my purse. It sat there for five hours while I enjoyed the heck out of that place staring at the pyramid so long never tiring of it. The only negative thing was when the waiter asked me for a tip when the check came. I went all out with drinks, food, time and like a sucker gave him 20%, why did I do that?? He preyed on tourist me and I succumbed. I know better now. Regardless that place was worth what I spent. What's your favorite museum and happy place in Paris? Please give me some advice I could really use them. I'll appreciate any advice. THank you so much.
