THINGS TO CONSIDER
Remember that city passes are only economical when you do everything that the pass allows you access to. If you’re going to be in town on a Monday or Tuesday, remember that these are the days when a lot of museums close. Buying a one-day city card for one of these days might be a waste of money. If you’re in town on the first Sunday of a month, many museums offer free entry anyway. Many museums in Paris offer free entry for visitors under 18 (or under 26 if they live in the EU). Double-check whether your card becomes active from its first use or from the moment you purchase it. Take care of the card, because if you lose it you won’t get a new one or a refund. However, if the magnetisation on the card fails (if it’s kept too close to a mobile phone, for example) the tourist office should replace it.
