Paris Travel Planner   Paris Pass - Museums, Sites, Transit
Jump the ticket lines at 60+ museums and attractions in Paris—and even on the Métro, buses, Seine River cruises & more with the Paris Pass.



Paris Pass is a combination of several documents that provide discounted admission to many of Paris's top museums and attractions, to the city's transit network, and to discounts for shopping and restaurants in Paris.

To help you find your way around, the Paris Pass comes with a 120+ page guidebook, with map and directions, Paris travel tips, and special discount offers at restaurants and shops.

The Paris Pass includes the Paris Museum Pass, Paris Attractions Pass, Paris Bus Tour, and Paris Visite Travelcard. This combination of entry cards becomes your one-stop ticket to almost everything you may want to see and do in Paris: use it to enter more than 60 of the city's top museums, to board a hop-on hop-off tour bus, to board a Seine River cruise, to zoom to the top of the Tour Montparnasse for the city's most spectacular views, even to sample fine wines, and more.

Besides all of these sites and activities, it gets you onto the Paris Métro, city buses, and the regional RER trains in central Paris.

Go to the Head of the Line!

With the pass, you are able to bypass the ticket lines at some museums, which can save a lot of time.

Note: Even with the Paris Museum Pass, you must still reserve a specific time for your visit to the Louvre. You cannot just show up with the pass and get in, as all visits are now reserved.

Time is money. If it fits with your plans, the Paris Pass can save you both.

How to Use the Paris Pass

Validity of the pass is by calendar days, so in order to get the most out of the pass you must plan your days in advance. Decide what you want to see and do in Paris, set up your daily itineraries, then see if the pass will benefit you.

With my two-day pass, I visited the Louvre and the Musée Grévin (wax museum), enjoyed a boat ride on the Seine, went to a wine tasting, visited a chocolate museum, and did a city tour in an open top bus—to name just a few! It was a busy couple of days but fun and interesting. Some suggestions for you:

Start using the pass early in the morning in order to get the greatest benefit from it. If you begin using it in the afternoon, you will have wasted a half day of its benefits.

Use it right and the Paris Pass will save you money, but, even if the cost of the activities you end up using is the same as what you paid for the pass, you'll still benefit from the ease and speed of bypassing the ticket lines at some museums; and from the free guidebook and special offers.

That having been said, no pass or ticket can free you from the security controls imposed at certain attractions.
