The French Riviera Pass uses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology: you can access your site thanks to an NFC card simply by scanning it with a reader to visit a site or use public transport.
If you have chosen an e-ticket, you will receive the pdf version within an hour of booking: then all you have to do is present it as you enter each site.
Depending on the choice of duration made at the time of purchase — 24, 48 or 72 hours — your card is valid for one, two or three consecutive days from the first use.
For example, if you use a 24hr pass for the first time at 2pm on Saturday, it remains valid until 2pm on Sunday.
