Make the most of this day pass and set off on the double-decker Big Bus to discover Paris. This combination will help you mix tourism and culture by visiting the city and the Louvre independently with an audio guide. 

The pass means you are first free to visit the Louvre, avoiding the queues with our ticket. You can collect the entry ticket from our Paris City Vision office very near the museum, which then gives you priority access (security checks may affect the speed of entry). You can then discover this former Palais Royal, which is now one of the most popular museums in the world. The large number of galleries and different themes mean you can choose to see what interests you most. However, you would not want to miss the Mona Lisa by de Vinci, The Raft of the Medusa, the Coronation of Napoleon or The Wedding at Cana. You can also admire the astonishing Venus de Milo and Winged Victory of Samothrace.

The one-day or two-day Big Bus pass means you can visit Paris comfortably, at your own pace. You can start your Paris sightseeing tour at any of the stops across the capital by showing the e-ticket on your smartphone or paper ticket. So you can choose to visit the districts, monuments and museums of Paris that most appeal. You can take time to wander through the streets of Paris, hopping off where you want and hopping on the bus again when you want.

The Big Buses offer two main routes included in the pass: 

The Red Route

You can travel round the center of Paris at your own pace while hearing about the city’s history in your chosen language. Around ten stops mean you can hop off near the city’s most iconic sites. So you can walk near the Opéra Garnier or the Champs Elysées, visit the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame de Paris, Musée d’Orsay or the Louvre. You can cross the many bridges of Paris along the Seine and see the architectural beauty of the City of Light as you enjoy the sightseeing tour.
