The Paris Pass is the best value way to see all the iconic Parisian sights on a budget, while avoiding the queues at the same time. Of course, there are over 60 attractions on the Paris Pass for you to enjoy and explore, but if you’re on a limited time frame, what are the must-see attractions we recommend you visit? Check out our list below of the top 5 Paris attractions you can experience with the Paris Pass.
The Louvre Museum
Even if you just want to make a beeline straight for the Mona Lisa, The Louvre is still an iconic, unmissable Paris attraction! The striking appearance of the glass prisms which allow you to look down into the museum’s gallery provide the perfect photo opportunity, while the tranquil pools provide a relaxing spot to rest your feet after plenty of walking. Normally €12.
Notre Dame Cathedral
Although the cathedral itself is free to enter, the real attraction comes from climbing the old belfry and admiring the spectacular views from the roof. This would normally cost €8.50, but with the Paris Pass, it’s absolutely free! It’s the perfect place to admire the gargoyles up close and take in the view of the Eiffel Tower over the stunning Parisian city scape. You can also channel your inner Quasimodo with a picture under the bells!
Arc de Triomphe
One of the most photographed Paris attractions, the Arc de Triomphe is often admired from afar (or from the safety of beyond the 8 lane roundabout surrounding it!). But one of the most beautiful views of Paris can be enjoyed from atop the Arc, especially at night when the bright lights of the traffic blend in with the glow from the distant Eiffel Tower. Normally, this view would cost €9.50, but with the Paris Pass it’s absolutely free!
Châteaux de Versailles
Although the Chateaux is slightly outside of Paris, it’s definitely worth a day’s visit. The Chateaux is one of the most stunning examples of French Baroque architecture that you can find in France, and contains room after room of incredibly intricate interiors. Even better, normally a visit to the stunning Chateau would cost you €18 but with the Paris Pass it’s free! The gardens outside the Chateau are also one of the main highlights, including incredible fountains and planting, as well as Marie Antoinette’s home.
O Chateau Wine Tasting
The most expensive experience offered on the Paris Pass, at €30 per person if booked directly, the O Chateau Wine Tasting is a great fun way to enjoy an afternoon in Paris. The tour is particularly perfect for big groups and wine novices, as an experienced Sommelier will talk you through a wide range of great French wines. Explore different reds, whites and rosés in the comfort of the cosy wine tasting cellar.
We love the Paris Pass not just for saving money, but for being able to jump the queues too! The line to enter the Chateau de Versailles can eat up so much of your precious holiday time, so if you want to skip to the head of the line, it’s worth having.
