All of these places have their own websites. Simply pull up Yahoo or Google and type in one of the places you mentioned and you've got your answer.

Sandi is right, but let me give you a few tips on what exactly to google. The David is in the Accademia Museum, the Sistine Chapel is in the Vatican Museum, and the Crown Jewels are in the Tower of London. Usually I do not nitpick at spelling, but when googling, it helps to spell correctly. It's "Colosseum," "Louvre," and "Chapel".

I can tell you that in January the Louvre cost 8€.

The Colloseum was 10 euro, but it also gets you into the Forum. If you buy your ticket at one of the Forum entrances, you can avoid the long line at the Colloseum (and see both).

You have to pay the entrance fee to the Vatican Museums to be able to enter the Sistine Chapel. It is 12 euro per person.

Oops, am guilty of misspelling "Colosseum." Sorry.

Geez, I guess I am going to be the "badie" on this thread. But just have to say, if you are seriously thinking of visiting all of these sights and really doing a good tour, you should know all that in advance Google and Fodors and other sights are so good, you should be really researching your trip.

Also hate to say but if you are worried about the price of admission to these sights, I am worried you cannot afford the trip--minor $ compared to the rest

I recommend getting Rick Steves "Europe Through The Back Door" book -- it has all the information about the major sights, including hours and costs, as well as good tips to build your travel skills.

In Paris, the Museum Pass is a good deal -- it gets you into practically everything except the Eiffel Tower. However, there are other passes that are not such a good deal and don't pay for themselves.

Most things are anywhere from free to $30 max. In London, a lot of stuff is free -- and some places will just ask for a donation.

Again, ETBD is a good guidebook to start with for stuff like that. You can get it on Amazon.com or at your local bookstore.

Good luck,

Jules

Agree with the poster who said if you're worried about the price of entering these sights you really need to do a heavy duty budget run through to be sure you know what this whole trip is going to cost.

And - for persepctive - almost all of these places (incredible sites in terms of human history/creativity) cost less than a movie - that lasts (and often wastes) 2 hours of your time and you've forgotten by the next day.

I'm with those who are wondering about a budget that is this tight (unless you are simply curious).

It's 5 entrance fees you ask about, even if they are $20USD equivalent each (which I'm guessing they are not). That's only 100 bucks maximum. Your plane ticket, hotel, and food expenses will be hugely more than that. You're just talking about "walkin' around money" IMO not something I'd bother to budget individually.
