The Paris Museum Pass is good for admission at 55 different museums and monuments in and around Paris, including the Louvre, the Musee d’Orsay, the Centre Pompidou, and Versailles. The Paris Attractions Pass adds an additional 8 attractions, including a tour of the Paris Opera House, a cruise on the River Seine, admission to the Grevin Wax Museum, and more. It also includes a travel card, the Paris Visite Pass, which can save a lot of money. You’ll get unlimited rides on the Metro, the regional train (RER), busses, trams, suburban trains, and even the Montmartre funicular—a must if you want to avoid that neighborhood’s thousands of stairs on the way up to the Basilica de Sacré Coeur.

What’s Good?

During the summer, lines to visit Versailles, the Louvre, or Notre Dame can easily be more than an hour long. With the Paris Pass you can skip the lines, saving time and stress and giving you more time to visit more attractions.

What Could get better?

The Paris Pass advertises potential savings of £55 on a 2-day adult pass, but it only makes sense if you are going to take advantage of some of the more expensive inclusions such at the Bus Tour, Wine Tasting, Wax Museum or the Palace of Versailles. The other option if to see a lot, which is possible if you are a first time visitor to the city and want to take it all in.. The pass is best for visitors who really want to go go go and see as much as they can during their time in Paris. Visitors who want to linger over coffee in cafés or spend a long time in the Louvre may not feel they’ve gotten their money’s worth.

The French Wine Tasting, which is normally £30 per person, is only available between 3 and 4 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Get Your Money’s Worth

The best values are on the Palace of Versailles (normally £20 per adult ticket), the Grevin Wax Museum (£20), and the two-day hop-on/hop-off Els Cars Rouges double decker bus tour (£24).

Insider Tips

The Paris Pass is activated at the first attraction you visit, and that counts as your first full day of use—even if you activate the card at 4pm. You’ll get the most for your money by visiting your first attraction in the morning of your first day.

Get an extra day out of your pass (sort-of). Get the 2 day Hop-on Bus Tour your on the last valid day of your card. Then hold off using the pass till your second day when your Paris Pass is no longer valid.

Always call ahead to confirm times, especially in the offseason.
