Bastille MarketGo local at Bastille Market, one of Paris' most popular street markets packed with vendors touting their wares. From artisan cheeseries to street food to vibrant florists, a trip to Bastille Market is to experience the best of French culture in a matter of seconds and it doesn't cost a cent to walk through it - though you could be in danger of buying a couple of nibbles here and there.

Champ du MarsForget the queues for the Eiffel Tower and settle down in the grassy Champs du Mars nearby with a bottle of wine, baguette and a picnic blanket. While the views from the top of the tower are some of the best in Paris, it's sometimes not worth it at the height of tourist season. Chill out in its shadow and grab your quintessential tourist shot from below.

Sacre CoueurThis all-white church is one of the most iconic Parisian sights and tops the trendy Montmartre district, which bustles with boutiques, patisseries and chic locals. While the hike up there is a little tiring, there's also a relatively affordable funicular that'll take you to the top in style. It's free to enter and the scale of the place is what will really hit you first - don't forget to look up. If you have the urge to climb its domes however, you'll have to shell out a few Euro.
