I totally agree with Danpop, even more, I think it's more rentable to bring water, beer (if you are more of a beer-drinker kind) and food with you visiting the sights of Paris. You can buy a bottle of mineral water for 0.80 Euro in a shop but for instance at the Eiffel Tower it costs 3-4 Euro. Also a beer costs 2-3 Euro (0.5 l) in a market but 4 Euro (0.33L) at the stands. It is the same with the food, sandwiches start from 5 Euro, the cheapest. Every tourist spot is like this, so you better go to a supermarket and buy your drink and snack there.

Address:
Parc du Champ de Mars, 75007 Paris, France

 
walking up to the Eiffel Tower is cheaperThe Louvre
