Top Tips for the Paris Museum Pass

1. The Paris Pass is only available for consecutive days use, (either 2, 4 or 6 days), so it’s worth planning an itinerary to get best value for this pass.

2. Try to begin using your pass as early as possible on the first day of use. This pass is a day pass rather than a 24 hour rollover pass, so the earlier the better for value for money.

3. Try to be realistic as to how many Paris attractions you will be able to visit in one day as sightseeing is tiring work!  You will need to balance value for money with realistic sightseeing goals.

4. Unfortunately, this Paris Pass does not allow for any rest days. Consider your sightseeing stamina for those contemplating a 4 or 6 day pass!

5. Keep an eye out for for separate fastrack entrances at those attractions that offer a speedier entry…a great tip to beat the queues at popular attractions.

6. Remember that the Paris Pass also includes free transport options too, (see above).

7. The great benefit of a Paris Museum Pass is that it encourages you to visit less well known attractions. Yes, the Louvre is a given but there a some great hidden gems in Paris too!

8. If you are planning a day to visit the Palace of Versailles, remember that this is some way outside of the city centre & may take the full day to visit.
