As we’ve already reported, paying €2.20 for a rather thin daily newspaper is simply foolish.
In addition to the browsing English-language journals at the Museum of Parisian Architecture, there are several other ways to fulfill your free press needs in Paris. First off, always check your hotel lobby for free English dailies. Many hotels provide copies of the International Herald Tribune in addition to the Le Monde and some other French regulars.
Those looking for city papers with Paris-based stories and reviews should look no further than The Paris Times, a free monthly paper found in Anglophone haunts throughout the city. Also available is the bi-monthly Paris Voice magazine and the classified-based FUSAC, which has been an Anglophone Parisian staple since 1988. Be on the lookout for all three at bookshops, cafes and galleries throughout the city.
Save the €2.20 you would have spent on an overpriced newspaper and treat yourself to an espresso.
