Im going to be living in Paris for 3 months in April next year - what is the approx daily living costs? How much should a budget per day?
I won't be living extravagantly - will be buying groceries to cook at home etc every day. Not including rent as this has already been pre-paid
You can eat cheaply if you shop at the local shops. Bread, cheese, wine, etc. are all available in markets and also fruits and veggies at outdoor stalls in warmer months. There are cheaper restaurants, especially the ones frequented by locals. A ham & cheese crepe makes a good dinner, and are found at corner shops. Not sure what $ amount I would put on a daily allowance, but not any more than what you would need in the states. about 5 years ago
The monthly transportation card is 65 so do not forget it ;) Otherwise you can buy food not too expensive in discount supermarket (Dia, LeaderPrice, Lidl...) and veggies at the market (be careful some indoor market can be pretty expensive)
Going out can be expensive... an average beer, outside of Happy Hours, will be around 6€ and a cocktail can easily top 10€ almost 5 years agoAnswered by Taxibeat via WorldNomads.com
Try going to the cheaper neighborhood outdoor markets, and compare prices with stores. The veggies can be cheaper, but beware of things like honey, or local products, they are more expensive. Carry your own water, that will save you money too. You can count on a minimum of 15€ per day per person if you cook at home. France is expensive, and Paris is really expensive..as most larger cities are.. almost 5 years ago
