Should I exchange money before I travel to Paris
Don’t go to your bank and exchange all your money before your France or European trip. You will probably pay a higher rate than necessary, and you don’t want to be running around with all that cash in your wallet. Don’t exchange money at the bureau de change or such at the airport or in tourist areas.
How much cash should I carry in Paris
400 euros should be sufficient. You don’t want to be stuck with a lot of euros at the end of your trip, and then have to exchange them at a bad rate. (Alternative: a stop at the airport gift shop.) You can use a credit card to pay for just about all the attractions you mention in your post.
