Getting More for Your Dollar

Visiting Paris now will stretch your travelĀ dollar because at this time the euro is almost equal with the dollar. As of this writing, one euro costs $1.09. Last year at this same time it cost around $1.40.

And if you have time to travel outside France, the euro is also the accepted currency in Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Austria, and other countries. While the euro is struggling, it generates more bargains and discounts for visitors.

Paris Museum Pass

For further savings, you can purchase a Paris Museum Pass for less than $100 and gain access to 60 museums and monuments in and around Paris.

Plus, on top of free admission to these popular sights, the pass also offer Fast Track Entry to many of them so you won’t have to waste time stuck in a line. This pass includes admission to the Louvre Museum, Orsay Museum, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, Palace of Versailies, Pantheon, La Conciergie, Centre Pompidou, Sainte-Chapelle, and more.

Paris Attractions Pass

For even more value, the Paris Attractions Pass allows free admission to 8 additional attractions, tours, as well as to the Museums. These additional activities includes things like a wine tasting experience, a tour of the Paris Opera House, a 1 day hop-on-hop-off bus tour ticket with stops all over Paris, and more.

Passes can be purchased for two days or four days and are available online.

With the current economic climate, now is the time to see Paris. Before you leave the states, though, be sure to exchange some dollars for euros, so you’ll be ready to pay the fare when you grab a taxi on your arrival.
