The Paris Pass makes visiting the many famous attractions and museums in Paris an extremely easy and cost-effective affair, giving you priority skip-the-line access to over 60 museums and monuments in Paris for only a fraction of the cost. The more you visit, the more you save. Choose from the 2, 3, 4 or 6-day pass, depending on which your pass is valid for consecutive days (and not spaced out 24-hour periods).
Popular Paris landmarks such as the Louvre Museum, Orsay Museum and the Notre Dame Cathedral are notorious for having ticket lines that are 1-3 hours long. The Paris Pass allows you to skip these ticket lines and get priority access to the museums and monuments. This allows you to spend more time experiencing the attraction than standing outside in the ticket queue.
The Paris Pass is also a very efficient way of experiencing what the city has to offer. The validity of the pass does not begin until you visit your first attraction. Hence, you can purchase your pass in advance and then plan your visits accordingly, without worrying about the expiration of the pass. Also, with unlimited usage during the validity period, you can visit any attraction you like for an unlimited number of times. With the museum pass, you will also receive a flyer containing all the information you need to know about the featured museums and monuments. With the Paris Visite Travelcard, you can avail free, unlimited travel on the metro, RER and buses.
