Hi guys and girls, I'm going to Paris via eurostar with my girl for the weekend, can anyone give some advice on where they would recommend going for nearby meals,attractions to the Eurostar or must see areas without breaking the bank?

Also, if anyone can let me know about which part of Paris the Eurostars arrival points are and the public transport system etc, as I've found some attractions in Paris but don't want to break the bank for a weekend trip before I go on a proper summer holiday?

Thanks in advance.

The seine river cruises on the bateaux are quite nice and not mega expensive,commentary in all languages provided. If you go to the louvre there are some very nice eating places inside on the top floor that are very reasonable pricewise.If you are on a very tight budget you can go round all the main points of interest via the metro.

My bad, my laptop froze, so the rest obviously didn't process, so I'll edit that now but I want to stay quite close to the eurostar drop off point, unless there's a must see attraction.

Our budget is tight, as we're going on holiday elsewhere as well but this is meant to be a treat and we're really interested in seeing places that wouldn't otherwise be available in London, as I've seen most of what it's got to offer.

Few tips as i went recently;
- you can book your ticket to the eiffel ower from here rather than queing up - http://www.tour-eiffel.com/preparing-your-visit/rates-and-visiting-conditions

- I have a great restraunt i went to but cant remember it now (sorry)

- public system is brilliant there. Use the metro station and you can buy something like 10 tickets for 5 - 6 euros. and you can share them too.

_ suggest you get a tourist map from your hotel and plan a day of visits to different places/momunemts/areas// might be worth starting with what you actualyl want to see and then plan arond that.

We haven't actually booked a hotel yet, as we don't know when we're going yet but plan to do so within the next 5 weeks at the latest (my £10 eurostar offer expires then lol)

I have heard the public transport system is excellent there....but does that mean I'll be frustrated when I come back to England? lol

I would prefer to plan the holiday in advance though, so we don't blow our budget...I was considering booking some deals from groupon/kgbdeals Paris section but I don't want to travel in loads of different locations that's several miles apart and we spend most of the time travelling, so any advice here would be appreciated too. :)

Gosh, where did you get a £10 Eurostar offer??

You can buy a carnet (the name for the pack of 10 metro tickets) in the London Eurostar waiting area - that means you don't have to queue up once you arrive in Paris. They have free maps and can give you loads of advice too. The centre of Paris is really compact - last time we were there for a week and only used the metro to get to and from Eurostar, the rest of the time we walked. Try the tripadvisor Paris forum for lots of advice..http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowForum-g187147-i14-Paris_Ile_de_France.html

It's with my Pruhealth platinum scheme, so I get a few nice perks, so I want to take advantage of it before I give it up. :)

I'll checkout the forum but can anyone give any advice about the paris deals on groupon and kgbdeals, as I'm thinking of using them to go on activities etc but need to know if they're going to be too far etc

Me and my wife stayed at the Hotel Derby Eiffel, If i rememerb correctly, it was about 100/night for a 3 star room only. The rooms were small but decent for the price but the main attraction was the eiffel tower was visible from our hotel room (literally 2 min walk to the gardens). in additon the area is supposed to be really good and the food was excellent. If you do stay at the hotel, ask at the receptioon for a good lace to eat and they will point you in teh direction of a restraunt which is not far at all and has brilliant food.

These are the options for KGBdeals but don't know if they're far apart etc but if someone can give some advice on which sections to stick to, it would be appreciated:

Paris, Paris Essonne, Paris Hauts-de-Seine, Paris Seine-et-Marne, Paris Seine-Saint-Denis, Paris Val de Marne, Paris Val d'Oise, Paris-Versailles Yvelines
