Tips for a weekend in Paris!

Jump to last reply

Greetings fellow travelers! Heading to London, from there we will be taking the Eurostar Train from London to Paris for a weekend. This will be the first weekend in March, so it will not be warm summer weather, more on the chilly side, but it will still be beautiful. We are two young college students on a budget. Therefore we are trying to stay away from fancy expensive hotels and restaurants. We of course want to indulge in the charming French culture, but need to be conscious of our wallets while doing so.
Now, my biggest issue so far is what hotel or hostel to stay at. When getting off of the Eurostar it brings you to downtown Paris. There are places to stay that we can walk to from the Eurostar station but the places we want to see such as Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame Cathedral are at least 20mins from all of that. We are looking for a GREAT location hostel or hotel. We would like to be located somewhere, where we can walk to popular shopping streets, restaurants and maybe even some great cathedrals. Also, we want to be able to drop off our bags where ever we stay, so a hostel that has no safe lockers or private rooms would not be ideal. We are not backpacking and bringing our bags everywhere.
If there are any unique experiences or tips you have about traveling in Paris that would be wonderful as well. We are not looking for a chaotic weekend trying to pack everything in. Just a relaxing and breathtaking culture experience.

Places on our list to visit:
Nortre-Dame Cathedral
Eiffel Tower
Lock Love Bridge
Arc de Triomphe
What else??

Thank you!!
