The metro and RER will get you anywhere in Paris at a very inexpensive rate. Just avoid transferring at big stations because sometimes you have to walk so long to do that transfer. Also, be careful of pickpockets especially at Gare du Nord where the RER B from CDG airport and the Eurostar meet there. In addition, there are many decorated stations like Louvre-Rivoli on line 1 platform, Concorde on line 12 platform, Arts Et Métiers (I don't remember on which line the decoration is!), and more The one thing I really don't like is that you cannot transfer between street level network (bus and tramway) to the rail network with the same ticket! Also this network has poor accessibility-there are very few elevators.

We used the Metro on several occasions. We were mostly satisfied and had no real problems. It was on time and very efficient. and it was full of passengers. Many metro stations are really nice and easy to navigate. Some are not so easy to get around, particularly if you have to go up and down many stairs. It is worth remembering that you need to be extra careful when using the metro, particularly when it is very busy, but at other times too. There are pickpockets everywhere. Experience has taught us to leave nothing to chance and build an imaginary, virtual steel wall around us, so we cannot be touched by "misfortune".

Like everything in Paris, the metro is also historical. Some stations are topnoch modern, some 100 years old. All of them kept the Paris historical vibe. If you have mobility issues, you will have to spend more time navigating in the stations. Some don't have elevator, most long high stairs and some escalators. On the metro map you will find indication of accessibility. But not all of them. It is a shame, really. It is easy to get lost, so I recommend that you study your route a day before. Metro is fast and cheap than car, as Paris is is always with traffic jams everywhere. Be careful with thieves they are very smart and light handed. Keep your passport and money close to you and safe at all times.

Pickpockets highly active, and targeting tourists. If you are arriving or leaving Paris via the Eurostar at Gare du Nord with any luggage, just don’t use the RER or the Metro, get a taxi, or multiple taxis if required. I would strongly suggest using taxis if you have young kids as well. Covid means everyone’s in masks and criminals are more confident. If you use the Metro at all, have minimal bags and make sure your belongings are as secure and visible to you (and attached to you) as possible. If multiple men seemingly knowing each other get on a train and separate out within the carraige, they are positioning for an attack. Hunker down where you can, away from the doors.
