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.

Parc du Champ de Mars, 75007 Paris, France

Paris History

Around 14th century, Paris had a decline in population due to a plague popularly known as the Black Death. The rebirth of Paris or the Renaissance turned the city to be a center for art and architecture as well as technology.  It was also during this period that religious conflicts got out of hand and resulted to what we know now as St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre—when Catholics massacred the [...]
