Take advantage of this one-day pass to visit Paris in total freedom and use our included admission ticket to visit the Musée d'Orsay whenever you like.
Big Bus offers two routes allowing you to explore the must-see sites of Paris. Aboard an open-top bus, you'll enjoy stunning views of Paris and discover the breathtaking beauty of this capital city. Hop on and hop off at any time at the different Big Bus stops located throughout Paris and spread over two distinct itineraries.
The first "Red" tour will allow you to visit the historical city center where the major Paris landmarks and districts are located. With ten stops, you can go from one point to another without getting tired and explore the city at your own pace. The tour includes an admission ticket to the Musée d'Orsay, which you can easily visit by getting off at stop no. 7, located right in front of the Museum.
Enjoy some time to discover the Musée d'Orsay. Housed in a former train station, the Musée d'Orsay is a magnificent setting to showcase the world's largest collection of impressionist and postimpressionist art work. Admire masterpieces such as "Le Moulin de la Galette" by Auguste Renoir, "Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe" [Luncheon on the Grass] by Edouard Manet, "Nuit étoilée " [Starry Night] by Vincent Van Gogh and "La Petite Danseuse de 14 Ans" [Little Dancer Aged Fourteen] by Edgar Degas.
You can also take advantage of this break to visit other attractions near the Musée d'Orsay. In the Tuileries Gardens, which are typically in the French style and the oldest gardens in Paris, you'll find the Musée de l'Orangerie which houses the works of Picasso, Monet and Matisse. A little further away is the Musée Rodin which has exhibited the works of Auguste Rodin since 1919. From there you'll be able to see the Tour Montparnasse, which is the tallest skyscraper in Paris.
If you wish, you can then continue your tour through Paris by taking the sightseeing bus on this same red route along the Seine. While listening to an audio commentary in the language of your choice, you can admire the architectural beauty of the buildings along the banks. You can visit other iconic Paris sites by getting off at any of the nine other stops.
