Me and my friend are going to Paris in mid-Feb. We will be going for 4 days 3 nights. We are both under 18 so I guess most of the tourist attractions or museums are free for us. (1) But is there any famous top attractions NOT FREE for TEENS?
I have done some searching on the internet on transport in Paris. I know that there is a PARIS PASS (www.paris-pass.com) which includes almost everything a tourist needs. A 2-day teen pass is sold at 45EURO. There is also a COMBOPASS. I don't quite see their differences. (2) CAN SOMEONE TELL ME?
However, since we are under 18, we don't need to pay for most of the attractions. (3) Therefore, shall we not buy any pass at all? Or shall we just buy tickets for travel?
We are planning to stay at Hotel Elysees Ceramic at the Champs Elysees area. The rates are cheap but I know that the area is quite high-class. (4) Do you advice us AVOID dining there? We are just teenagers and we don't have too much to spend.
These are places that I am planning to go:
- Arc de Triomphe
- Champs Elysees
- Faubourge St Honore
- Louvre Museum
- Orsay Museum
- Seine River Cruise
The first three are quite near our hotel. We plan to walk there. (5) Therefore, I am still struggling whether I should get CARNET, PARIS VISITE or MOBILIS?
We would also like to do some shopping. (6) Where can we SHOP at? We would like to buy special cute things and not expensive things.
(7) How is Mouline Rouge area like? I know it is a night life place. But is it worth going? Are bars/clubs quite expensive to go to?
(8) Can you recommend any reasonably good French restaurant which costs under 20EURO per person?
(9) Any more things to do or go for teens?
Thank you very much.
