France - - CITY PASSES -

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.
