    In Paris the best way to eat cheaply is Lebanese falafel in Marais or Moroccan cous-cous. Possibly the only French food would be the occasional crepe from a street vendor, or a take-away croque monsieur/madame from a bakery.

    In Rome, just head one or two streets back from the tourist spots and the prices will drop dramatically. Pizza by the slice is probably the cheapest food, or head to a bakery for a little variety. Treat yourself with at least one gelato while you're there.

    Alternatively head to the markets and create a decent picnic of bread, cheese and fruit. over 9 years ago

    I got an awesome time in Paris with tight budge also. However, 5 euros perday for eating seems quite tough. I ate bread with jumbon which is 2.5 euro for one time. over 9 years ago

    Head to the supermarkets, self-catering is almost always the cheapest option, especially if you can wait till near closing time when prices are often marked down. about 9 years ago

    5 Euro a day is a very very tight budget. Agree that you are probably going to have to self cater and drink water which seems a shame when you are in Paris and Rome as the food and wine are delicious.

    What about trying one of the underground supper clubs - people hosting dinners in their homes? This guy http://www.jim-haynes.com/contact/index.php has been doing just that for 30 years! I am sure if you google it you will get a whole list for Paris and Rome. about 9 years ago

    In Paris: maybe try food-trucks (often close to markets). Buy from cheapest supermarkets: Leclerc, Leader Price, Lidl. It won't be easy. Street markets bring prices down for fruit & veg close to closing time, especially on sunday. over 4 years ago
