The best idea ever! No line ups, subway passes, museum passes! Having the Paris pass was a terrific! We weren't familiar with Paris and by having the 2 day hop on, hop off pass, it enabled us to get the lay of the land first! The subway pass was terrific as you go can anywhere! We took a beautiful river boat cruise down the Seine! The best part of the pass was getting into all of the museums without lining up!! The line ups were really long and it was really hot, so walking to the front and just going in paid off royally!!
