I will be staying in an adorable flat in the Montmartre part of Paris.

What Am I Doing?

Listed below are the three sights I will be seeing:

Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, and Musée d'Orsay.

Notre Dame

Tuesday, April 18th, 12pm

Notre Dame, Paris, France

Paris, Île-de-France

When I land, I'll grab breakfast , buy bell tower tickets, and soak in the thought of being in Paris! Then, I'll head over to Notre Dame for the noon mass. After mass and exploring the side chapels, it's the bell tower tour (387 steps!) to see the best view of Paris!

The mass and side chapels are free, but climbing the bell tower will cost €8.

Eiffel Tower

Tuesday, April 18th, 4:30pm

19 Avenue de la Bourdonnais

Paris, Île-de-France

After Notre Dame and lunch, I'll head over to the Eiffel Tower and check out the view from the very top! This will cost €14,50

Musée d'Orsay

Wednesday, April 19th, 9:30am

Musée d'Orsay, Paris, France

Paris, Île-de-France

For my art museum, I chose Museé d'Orsay, so I could see the famous Degas paintings. Admission is free for those under 18!

**Note: If a student is over 18, they receive the student admission of € 9.

Food, Glorious, Food

Last, but not least, I need to budget for the delicious Parisian cuisine.

All of these are approximate costs of meals.
