Paris: Panthéon Admission Ticket and Self-Guided Tour

1. Paris: Panthéon Admission Ticket and Self-Guided Tour

A masterpiece created by Soufflot (1713-1780) and a former church, the Panthéon became the burial place for famous French personalities from the French Revolution. Spend an hour visiting this important monument on a skip-the-line self-guided tour. A major exhibition at the Panthéon pays tribute to Jacques-Germain Soufflot, one of the greatest French architects. It presents his career and his monumental achievements, the most famous being the royal Church of Sainte-Geneviève, the current Panthéon. The architect achieved Louis XV's desire to glorify the monarchy in church form dedicated to Saint Geneviève. The edifice was deconsecrated during the French Revolution in 1791 and renamed the Panthéon. During the turbulent 19th century, it shifted between a religious and patriotic monument. Since Victor Hugo's death in 1885, the Panthéon has been the resting place for French writers, scientists, generals, clergymen, and politicians. The crypt houses the tombs of 70+ illustrious figures including Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile Zola, Alexandre Dumas, Pierre, and Marie Currie. From the recently restored upper floors, you can enjoy superb views across the city (from April to October).

Overall rating

The guide includes almost everything you’d want to see. This is my 6th time in Paris, and spent an entire week taking in some of the usual favorites, Louvre, D’Orsay and visited many smaller venues, most of which we’d never seen before. The museum pass is almost always the best way to see more during your time because you skip some extremely long lines! Highly recommend.

It's a little tricky to find the office to pick up your pass, but they work like a charm. You still need to get a timed ticket for the Louvre and Versailles, but you just walk into other places.

Fantastic, worth it. Have to pay additional 3.50 euros if you wish to get to the top. Audio guide available here as well.

So easy to use& highly recommend! Only way to see the various sites.

Worth the price! Walk right into museums and avoid the lines.
