Paris is expensive.
But if you’re here and you’re seeking something fun on the cheap, let me introduce you to patin à glace… also known as ice skating!
For just 5 euro, you could be romantically whirling and twirling in circles on a beautiful sheet of ice in front of some of the world’s most beautiful architecture. You could also be falling on your ass, but that’s your problem. 😉
The skating rink in front of the Hôtel de Ville offers entry and skates (in great condition, I might add) for that fee, plus the sights of this famous plaza along the Seine and the sounds of a local DJ. Although you risk breaking an arm and a leg, it certainly won’t cost that to give skating here a spin. Here are some night shots from my pre-Christmas romp in the rink:
So if you want a unique experience while visiting Paris that won’t break the bank, give the glace a go 😉
