When you book this hop-on, hop-off buss pass, including a skip-the-line ticket to the Louvre, the day you’ve booked for is actually just the day you need to pick up your tickets from the Big Bus office on Avenue de l'Opéra. You can choose either a 1-day or 2-day ticket, and your ticket is valid for either one or two days from the very first time you use it on the bus lines.
Big Bus offers two different hop-on, hop-off bus routes — the Classic Route and the Montmartre Route. The Classic Route takes about two and a half hours to complete, while the Montmartre Route only takes about an hour and 15 minutes. Combined, the routes have 15 stops all around Paris at popular landmarks, such as Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Moulin Rouge. For a complete list of the stops on each route, see the Itinerary below.
Because the buses run every five to 20 minutes, it’s super easy to plan your trip, and visit the places that interest you most. If you’re interested in learning more about the city as you ride, audio commentary is available for you to listen to.
Plus, you can fit in a visit to the Louvre any time you like, and avoid the chaos of the crowded lines with your skip-the-line admission ticket. Pass by those waiting, and head inside to see one of the largest collections of European art in the world, including the famous Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo da Vinci. Please keep in mind the museum is closed on Tuesdays.
