Creating an exciting itinerary to visit Paris with the Paris Pass

We’ve landed in Paris and with 2 full weeks to explore, I consider us pretty lucky. However I think we got even luckier because we’ve got our Paris Pass in hand and we are ready to see all we can of this beautiful city.

So I’m sure you’re wondering what is the Paris Pass?

The Paris Pass is the ultimate way to see Paris. This pass includes entry to over 55 of Paris’ world famous museums and monuments, free unlimited travel on the metro, buses and RER within central Paris, a Wine Tasting experience, and so much more. 

We had a fabulous start yesterday visiting the Dali museum, and we had an ambitious itinerary today that was successfully executed due to the brilliance of the Paris Pass.

With the card, you skip all the wait= no lines. So we were able to go straight to the front, gain quick entry, and admire & photograph to our hearts content before moving on. We’re going to outline our tentative Parisian itinerary making the most out of our 4 day Paris Pass.

Today, we left the house rather late around 12:30 pm and we were still able to see all of the following:

– Paris Wax Museum

– Sainte Chappelle

– Museum of French Monuments 

– Archeological crypt of Notre-Dame

– A spectacular nighttime view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe

We got back around 7:30 pm which was impressive. Achy feet but well worth it!

In the next few days, we also plan to visit:

– The Louvre ( plus the advertising history Museum if we can )

Palace of Versailles

– Chateau de Fontainbleau

– Sacre Coeur interior (and hopefully ride the Petit train that takes you through the Montmartre neighborhood which is where we are living now. We did get a photo of Mike next to the train yesterday!)

–  Opera Garnier (The Palais Garnier)

– The Paris sewers

– The Montparnasse Tower 

We’re also going to indulge in a little wine tasting and take an hour long river cruise- both included in the Paris Pass. How about that for sightseeing ninjas? We’re making the most of our holiday and although I think the crowds are a little bigger than usual due to the holiday season, its still a festive, fabulous time to be exploring Paris and we hope to visit all of the things on our list. 

Tell us, are there any other sights you think we should be visiting? We haven’t even gotten to all of the food & restaurants we want to try, there is so much to do here!
