HOW TO LIVE IN PARIS (Realities and Costs)

x

Living in Paris is not as great as you might think..

My life as a Luxury Brand Management student in Paris, including visit to Louis Vuitton Foundation, Pierre Marcolini store, IFA Paris, a lot of metro rides and even more baguettes ;)

As you guys know I moved to Paris to continue my MBA degree a couple fo months ago, this video was filmed during a very busy period of my life when I couldn't really allow myself to focus on vlogging as much as I wish I could, at first I didn't really know what to do with all this random footage that I had, but then I decided to put up this video together to show what my life has really been like these last couple of months in Paris.

Hi! My name is Kaja :) I grew up between Poland and Denmark, and for the past couple of years I have been living in Copenhagen, Shanghai, Bangkok and Paris, making videos about my travels, daily life and fashion. I'm currently doing a MBA degree in Luxury Brand Management in Shanghai and Paris.

The many faces of Parisian life. La vie en rose, illusion or reality?

There is some truth to the saying that we Americans live to work and French work to live. There are significant differences between how we live in America and how the Parisians approach the joys of everyday living. The French strive to live a very passionate life. They have a keen focus on what's important to them and they manage to turn even the smallest things into an enjoyable experience. Even though most Parisians live life on a budget, that does not mean they live a dull life. They turn little moments such as having a cup of coffee into an enjoyable experience, 8:14. They find time to exercise (0:28 group led by an American coach, 7:40 wrestling, 4:40 jogging on the left bank), get their nails done 1:18, do some shopping 2:16, 4:54, and smell the roses 5:32. The French seem to have their cake and eat it too. They enjoy their life by indulging while practicing moderation, 7:58. But, could Paris of people’s imagination- the City of Light, the city of fine dining and world class couture and intellectual grandeur- be an illusion to some degree? Life in Paris can become unbearable at times. Taking the metro for example is not a pleasant experience especially if your life depends on it to commute to work. There’s hardly any ventilation, so you get a pretty good dose of bad smell almost all the time whenever you travel by metro! Paris is a large city with problems such as pollution, noise 3:16, 3:14 and homelessness 6:03. There are about 10,000 homeless people in Paris living on the streets, in metro stations or self-made shelters constructed from cardboard and wooden pallets, dragging their belongings behind them. It's Parisians' ability to concentrate on all beautiful things that render their lives enjoyable that helps them escape the difficulties of the city. Enjoying the little things isn’t just about noticing them but about creating opportunities to enjoy them. So elegant, so beautiful and so Parisian despite all the ugliness and the misery.

Cost Of Living In Paris, France In 2019, Rank 20th In The world

These data are based on 3492 entries in the past 18 months from 489 different contributors. Please help us to update the data, thank you.

Living the Montmartre experience, Paris. The French art of living.

Montmartre is 130 meters above the city of Paris’ 18th arrondissement. Paris’ legendary Montmartre was once the place where artists such Picasso, Zola and Renoir lived and worked. Montmartre was outside the city limits of Paris, and was exempt from city taxes, and so the modest earning art lovers of Paris would flock to this hill, where there a breathtaking view of the city. Now home to vibrant cafés, restaurants and lively music venues, Montmartre has retained some of its original spirit. You can still feel that carefree and pure joie-de-vivre, a certain enjoyment and appreciation of life’s small pleasures which I find irresistible... as simple as sipping a cup of coffee under the sunshine on a cold day, a long conversation with a good friend, watching the painters create their art, watching the tourists have their portraits made and strolling though the narrow streets while reminiscing the past.

How Expensive is Traveling in FRANCE? One Day in Paris

Enjoying Parisian Life On a Sunny Day (2019)

Just a slice of Parisian life (vie parisienne). Soaking in the paris atmosphere on a sunny winter's day in the 6th arrondissement.

Streets are lined with a variety of artisan shops selling beautiful patisseries, bread, seafood and goods.

Every time I go back to Paris I am always amazed by the diversity of shops packed into one street and the 'joie de vivre' that Parisian's have so effortlessly perfected. This is especially noticiable around the rive gauche (left bank) arrondissement.

This video provides a glimpse of the St Germains des Pres and the Montparnasse area. The boulevard is fantastic for bistrot and seafood and St Germain is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon stroll and enjoying un cafe on the terrace while watching the world go by.

Video Transcript:
Paris is known for being an expensive city, but there are plenty of ways that you can save money during your vacation.
Here are some of our tips!
Paris is filled with the most iconic landmarks on earth and luckily for the budget traveler, they can all be seen for free!
Choosing a holiday apartment rental can help you save a lot of money. You get more space, and bang for your buck and deeper discounts when you stay for a longer amount of time.

Having a kitchen in your apartment is a great way to save money on meals.
We find that eating out is one of the most expensive parts of travel.
so if you can cook yourself a nice romantic dinner in with a bottle of fine wine from the Carfourre, you're going to save a lot of money
When in Paris, make sure to take advantage of free tours, they're all over the place and it's a great way to learn about the history of Paris.
Many museums in Paris offer free days, once a month, like the Museé D'Orsay here.
On the first Sunday of every month, you can get in for free.
Be sure to check and see when museums have discounts on certain days of the week where you can get in for the last couple of hours for a fraction of the price.
When you're in Paris be sure to take advantage of the free churches like Notre Dame.
They're absolutely beautiful inside and they're free!
I'm on the steps of Sacre Couer in Mont Martre, and it's the best view of Paris, save for the Eiffel Tower or Monteparnasse, but this view is free.
Choosing the right disctrict to stay in can save you a lot of money.
This studio in Montmartre starts at 49 Euro a night.
So another great budget tip in Paris is head down to your local Fanprix or Carfourre, grab yourself some meats, cheeses and baguettes, and head somewhere to have yourself a great picnic.
When you do decide to eat out in Paris, make sure to hit the Latin Quarter, you can get a 3 course meal for under €20.
Here's a tip to help you save money, whenever you see the emblem of Paris on a museum, it means it's free.
Here's a great site in Paris that you can see for free!
Instead of taking taxis or tourist busses, take the metro instead.
Paris has an extensive system and it stops at all the major sites.
There is so much that you can do for free in Paris, be it walking through the cemeteries of Monteparnasse and Pere la Chaise to visit the famous residents,
to taking advantage of watching the talented musicians and artists performing in the streets.
You don't need to go inside to witness beautiful art in Paris. The city itself is a living work of art.

How much money do you need to move to France?

You may think that moving to France as a student is prohibitively expensive, but it's not as out of reach as you might think. Today, we look at the cost of moving to France, and which expenses are absolutely necessary.

The Streets of Paris

Paris, the capital of France, has been one of Europe's major centres of finance, commerce, fashion, science, and the arts since the 17th century.
