“When we were in Paris last summer the Paris Pass definitely allowed us to skip every line at every site we went to. This includes the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée Cluny, the Orangerie and the Rodin Museum. Whenever we turned up at a museum the guard waved us to a secondary entry point and we were always inside within a minute or two.

I have to say I was shocked at how few people seemed to bother with getting a Paris Pass given the time you save by avoiding the queues
is well worth it.” –traveler 5-star review

Here's What's Included

1 – Paris Museum Pass

Paris City Pass

The Paris Museum Pass gets you free entrance into sixty museums, including all the ones you want to see, and it's included with your purchase of The Paris Pass.

But the best part is you get to bypass the loooong ticket lines at almost all of the museums and monuments in Paris! We find this to be a great time saver and alone worth the cost of the pass.

You get entrance to the Louvre Art Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, Palace of Versailles, and over sixty other museums and monuments — the ones you want to see.

2 – Paris Visite Metro Pass

Arts et Metiers Metro Station

Paris Visite is the name of the Paris Metro Pass, and it's also included with The Paris Pass. This lets you ride the public transportation system for free.

That means you can ride all you want on the Metro, the city buses, the tramways, and the Montmartre funicular.

We know from experience that it's a great convenience to have a Metro pass. It means you don't have to buy a ticket every time. Just enter any Metro station and use your Visite to hop on your train.

3 – Paris Attractions Pass

Palais Garnier

With this Paris Pass exclusive feature you also get free entry into some of the best monuments and activities in the city.

Our favorite things about the Attractions Pass (also included with the Paris Pass) are the hop-on bus tour, the Seine river cruise, the wine tasting at Ô Château, and free entrance into Palais Garnier (pictured). Those are four things you shouldn't miss.

Buying Your Paris Pass

Paris Pass and to order

The Paris Pass is our recommendation even if you plan to see only two museums or monuments a day, and ride the Metro (which is the best way to get around Paris).

You'll certainly save time and money. In our opinion, though, the greatest feature is that this combination Paris City Pass allows you to bypass the ticket line-ups.

But we strongly advise you not to wait to get to Paris to figure things out, such as how to buy museum tickets and how to ride the Metro. Have a city pass with you and arrive in Paris ready to start having fun. And that's very easy to do, just go to the Paris Pass site and order. But don't forget to use Paris Insiders exclusive discount code — INSIDERGUIDE — to get an additional 10% discount!
