Paris on the Cheap: A gg2p GO-Card Itinerary
Being on a budget doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a VIP experience in Paris. With the gg2p GO-Card, you’ll get special deals and treatment everywhere you go!
Opt for an apartment rental instead of a hotel to save money on your stay and meals. With Feels Like Home in Paris, you’ll have the chance to stay in beautiful neighborhoods and live like a vrai Parisian. With many locations in Montmartre, you can shop for the city’s freshest fruits, artisanal cheeses and more at the many markets that most tourists miss.

Paris has so much to offer for free: music festivals, exhibitions and the beautiful gardens. Thomas Jefferson said, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty and in the point of life.” That couldn’t be more true. Take advantage of walking in the city and enjoying the sites. Our GO-Card members have access to our set of Paris Highlights walking tours, which you can download to your smartphone or tablet. Take the pastry and chocolate walking tour to uncover some of the best-kept chocolaty secrets in Paris.
