1-Day Paris Big Bus Pass and Ticket to the Picasso Museum

  • Description

This pass will allow you to explore Paris in total freedom aboard a Big Bus and visit the Picasso Museum whenever you wish.

With the "Classic" Big Bus Pass you can take advantage of both routes and see the most iconic Paris sites.  The e-ticket allows you to start your Paris tour wherever you want, at any of the 11 Big Bus stops in Paris.  Aboard this open-top double-decker bus, you can appreciate the architecture of Parisian landmarks while listening to a commentary on the history of Paris on personal headphones and in the language of your choice.

The first "red" route goes through the historical center of Paris, from the Eiffel Tower to the Opéra Garnier, passing the Luxembourg Gardens or the Champs Elysées.  This enables you to stop at the end of the Champs Elysées and visit the Grand Palais which offers many temporary exhibits.  You can walk to Place de la Concorde, the largest square in Paris, which is located near the Louvre, between the Champs Elysées and the Tuileries Gardens.If you want to see the Eiffel Tower from a different angle, Place du Trocadéro (stop no. 10 on the red route) offers an exceptional view of the Iron Lady.  If you wish, you can take advantage of this moment to visit the Musée National de la Marine which retraces the maritime history of France, Cineaqua, the first aquarium created in the world and which features an impressive shark tank, or the Guimet Museum which exhibits a large collection of Asian art.
