Sightseeing > Paris Museum Passes

The Paris Museum Pass isn't a bad deal for those of you planning on seeing a lot of museums and monuments while in Paris. The pass is good for over sixty sites in Paris and the surrounding area (like Château de Versailles). You can purchase them at Tourism Offices, at any participating museum or monument, and in at FNAC (the passes don't have an expiration date).

If you think you'll visit a LOT *and* you want to take the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus tour, the Paris Pass may be a good deal for you. Keep in mind that if you're staying in the center of Paris you might not even need a metro pass (one carnet of 10 tickets is only €12, which you can use any day).

I don't recommend the Paris Visit card. It's heavily promoted to tourists, but hardly offers a good deal. It’s an expensive transportation pass with a few token discounts to tourist sites (such as 10% off gift shops at Disneyland or a free Moulin Rouge ashtray). See the website for complete rates (from €8.35 for one day to €26.65 for five days within Paris).

You're better off getting a museum pass and a separate transportation pass.
