My friends and I will be in Paris for 7 nights and will be staying in an apartment. I'm trying to determine what is a good amount of money to bring as I don't want to get to Paris and have to pinch pennies.
As for food, we have a kitchen and I plan on stocking up from the Monoprix but I would like to go out for a few nice dinners.
I want to see the typical tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre so I'm not sure if it is worth it to get a museum pass.
And of course transportation (to and from the airport and getting around Paris) will cost.
Souvenirs and shopping is not high on my priority list but I would like to get some things to take home.
I budgeted $3,000 but I'm hoping I can make it with half of that. Any suggestions for saving money is greatly appreciated.
