Visiting the museums in Paris must know the money-saving strategy!
Arriving at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, it was a photo exhibition of a whole gallery, which brought people into the artistic atmosphere of France. The Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Fontainebleau are all familiar with the art scenes of Paris. Now you can visit them all by buying a museum pass. The
Museum Pass includes tickets to more than 60 museums and memorials such as the Louvre, the Palace of Versailles, the Pompidou Centre, the Arc de Triomphe and the Muse d'Orsay. There are two-day, four-day and six-day tickets, the price is 48 euros, 62 euros, 74 euros, if you go to the Louvre, the ticket is 12 euros, the Versailles ticket is 18 euros, the Centre Pompidou 13 euros, The Arc de Triomphe climbs to the top of 9.5 Euros, so even if you only go to these 4 places, the two-day ticket will be worth the return price, and in most places you can also skip the queue.
The Paris Museum stipulates that children under the age of 18 are exempt from the ticket and need to travel with their parents. If the parent holds a pass, the child does not need to line up separately, and can accompany the parents to directly enter the museum with their age identification (passport).
Place of purchase: Charles de Gaulle Airport, the first floor of the Lafayette Men's Wear Hall, the consultation office set up by the Regional Tourism Bureau
Two-day itinerary recommended:
D1 Louvre - Pompid Du Centre-Orsay Museum
D2 Versailles-Arc de Triomphe (can be summited)
When in #france, the Palace of #versailles is not to be missed. Located around an hour away from #paris via train, the Palace is a magnificent piece of history and UNESCO world heritage site that has been preserved for centuries. Wander around the rooms that King Louis once dwelled in and take a stroll around the Palace’s stunning gardens. You can also explore the former residence of Marie Antoinette further away from the main palace area.
To describe a place like Versailles, you could use a plethora of adjectives: magnificent, lavish, huge, mind-blowing, etc. Like many, I came to know this mansion and its gardens from school books, yet the real visit is something else.
Located about 45 minutes outside of Versailles, the cheapest and most convenient way to get there is by train. During high season the queue at the entrance can drive you insane, so don’t forget to book your tickets in advance and start your visit in just minutes! From the bedrooms to the magnificent halls, this place played a significant role in the world’s history and has been preserved exceptionally well through the centuries. Every corner screams opulence!
As much as you can be impressed by the grandiosity of the palace, nothing prepares you for the visit of its massive 2000-acre gardens. The sheer amount of details is probably unmatched by any other place in the world: amazingly manicured lawns, fountains, and sculptures populate the entire area, where baroque music is spread by hidden speakers located across the gardens.
Across the property, there are multiple spots where you can sip some fresh orange juice, or enjoy a coffee or a gelato.

Palace of Versailles is the most beautiful palace you probably can ever visit in the world! It is reachable by train from Paris, for about an hour. You can walk around inside or you can also rent a boogey. #happynewyear
The Palace of Versailles is famous throughout the world for its luxurious and imaginative architectural design. The primary attractions of the site are all located on the second floor of the main building. Perhaps the most famous one is the Hall of Mirrors. The Gallery of Great Battles is also one of the palace's highlights. The interior decoration in the gallery primarily features paintings of Louis XIV battling Spain and Germany. The palace grounds feature an extraordinarily large and gorgeously designed French garden with extremely symmetrical geometry. The Neptune Fountain can be considered the centerpiece of the gardens. To the north of the main building is the Latona Fountain; to the south of the main building are many attractions such as the orangerie and greenhouses.
