Here is the complete list of all attractions included in the Paris Pass.
Included in every Paris Pass is the Paris Visite Card that allows you unlimited travel on every metro, RER, bus, tram and on the Montmartre Cable Car, covering zones 1 to 3 in the centre of Paris.
In the FAQ section of the Paris Pass website, a case study is presented, showing the use of the 4-day pass, visiting 4 attractions every day. In that case, for example, the amount of money saved would be a total of 40 euros, not including the savings for transport costs. The pass also includes discounts in various stores and restaurants throughout Paris.
In general, the pass proves it’s worth it if the visitor wants to see 2 paid attractions or more per day. Of course, the more visits, the more are the savings on what he would have paid, had he not purchased the pass. The most noteworthy advantage, however, still lies in the possibility of skipping long lines, saving time for other more stimulating activities.
