Travel tip: Where to find the best overall prices on souvenirs in Paris
Everywhere you go in Paris, it seems there are endless options for purchasing souvenirs to commemorate your visit. From mini Eiffel Towers on key rings to printed scarves to the classic French beret, options are endless. There are street peddlers and souvenir shops at every turn.
But, as every good traveler knows, the cost of items vary from location to location and the closer you are to the tourist site, the more expensive the item.
This week’s travel tip is where you can find the best overall prices on souvenirs and that is in Montmartre specifically near and around the famous Place du Tertre. I’m not talking about the artist paintings in the square but the souvenir shops located in the streets around the area. Even though this is a popular tourist spot, the prices are in general less than the prices in and around the city center.
Already have Montmartre on your Paris itinerary? Then make sure you shop around the souvenir stores and pick up all your mementos and gifts.
If Montmartre isn’t yet on your list and you have a number of souvenirs you’d like to purchase, then a quick metro ride out to the 18th arrondissement may be worth the trip and while your there, take in an amazing view of the city from the highest point in Paris.
