This pass will allow you to make the most of your visit to Paris. After spending the day touring the city aboard an open-top coach operated by Big Bus Tours, enjoy a delicious dinner along the Seine on board a La Marina PARISCityVISION boat.
Big Bus offers two routes across the French capital to allow you to visit the must-see sites of Paris. The red route includes 10 stops which are near the most famous districts and monuments of Paris, close to the Seine. The blue route covers the northern part of the city where the charming district of Montmartre is located.
Your one-day pass enables you to switch routes and to hop on or off as you wish. Admire magnificent panoramic views while listening to audio commentary on personal headphones. Visit Paris at your own pace and choose the areas that appeal to you the most. One of the great tourist spots that you can explore is the neighborhood around the Eiffel Tower.
Get off at stop no. 1 to admire the grandiose 312-meter-high Eiffel Tower which was the highest monument in the world for 40 years. Make sure to walk along the Champ de Mars which offers a majestic view of the Iron Lady. Other sites you can visit that are very close to this Paris landmark include the Musée du Quai Branly, which features a comprehensive collection of World Arts and Civilizations, and the Palais de Tokyo. You can choose to take the bus at Champs de Mars, near the École Militaire, an impressive building which once served as a military training academy for young gentlemen.
