The castle was the official seat of power until 1789, but has since been seen as the unofficial seat. Also known as the “cradle of liberty” (Berceau-de-la-Liberté) it was here that the people of Paris made their stand against King Louis XV1, forcing the Royal Family to leave behind their life of decadence and move back to the true capital city of Paris.

"The Paris pass really made my trip much more enjoyable. We avoided a lot of long lines up which allowed us to see somuch more at the end of the day. It also showed us things we didn't even know existed and that was great. We use it to the full extent that we could and definitely got our moneys worth."

ParisPass was great to have. Museum pass let us skip a few lines. It was also handy having the Metro passes included.
My first reaction was 'It's a bit pricey' but boy was i wrong. Other than the Eiffel tower everything was pre-paid including all local transport. The fact that the pass ' Quick passed ' us almost everywhere meant that our 3 days wasn't spent in queues. Will look out for it in all cities we go to from here on in
