When we think of Paris, movies and films have done a wonderful job of painting a scenario of a well-dressed person strolling down the street with a croissant or baguette, in an impeccable outfit with Parisian chic written across it. Every corner we turn, there's stunning and elegant architecture, with accordion music playing in the background. It's no wonder why Paris is the background of many romantic movies and inspirations, and why it remains a major tourist draw.
With the reputation of being a major tourist destination comes with it elevated prices for tourist attractions. Sure, you can afford it, and you're on holiday, but you cannot deny the satisfaction of obtaining an experience or an item at a lower cost.
Utilise city passes to keep tourist attraction costs down
Entrance fees are a major cost for those looking to museum-hop across Paris. That's when you'll want to look at city passes, especially when you have more than two attractions you'd like to visit in any city.
Go City, a city pass platform, is often used by tourists to save on multiple attractions.
