We got 1 week passes. We were very happy with the metro system - easy to use and metro trains were very frequent. The passes also worked with the trains and the funicular at Sacré-Cœur, Paris. Next time in Paris, we will also use the...More
The Paris Metro is great! I've been to Paris five times now, but this is the first time I've used the metro. There is a lot of walking to get to the platform. Sometimes it felt as though I was walking the length and breadth...More
We used the Metro over aweek and simply used self serve machines with cash to obtain single use tickets. You can buy sets of single use tickets in groups of 10, 20 which reduces costs per ticket. You simple feed a single use ticket into...More
This is definitely the way to travel if you want to get around Paris quickly and efficiently. The tickets aren't expensive and the service is extremely reliable. It's very simple once you know how to use it. Each line has a number and the two...More
We were so proud of ourselves for figuring out the Paris metro system! One day in and we were starting to get around on our new weekly pass that we figured out how to purchase despite a significant language barrier!
How crushed we were when...More
The Paris Metro & RER is one of the easiest ways to get around Paris. Cheap, convenient, and effiecent. Trains run very frequently. The metro needed cleaning, platforms are dirty, and graffiti in the tunnels. RER B also gets super crowded, so avoid that line...More
I had been told there are lots of pickpockets in the Paris Metro system so I was very careful when I arrived at Paris. However we met a scammers when purchasing ticket.
I intended to buy a day pass from the ticket machine one day...More
We have visited Paris 8 times and we always rely upon the Metro to get us around. It's safe, reliable, inexpensive and it takes you anywhere you need to go! We always buy a caret so we have plenty of tickets.
One warning: There are...More
Paris is massive, and it’s not feasible to see it all on foot, especially if you’re stay outside of the centre of the city. Go to a ticket machine in a station, get yourself 10 tickets for 15 euros, and make your way around the...More
It really is a good service for greater Paris. The loud speakers warn of pick pockets. I saw a young woman have her phone snatched. She was sitting next to the carraige door tapping away. Just as the hooter sounded for the doors to close...More
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal, this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering window displays. Every other establishment has someone to open the door for you or park your car. You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or
lingering over a meal at any of its chic eateries. After all that indulgence, the Tuileries gardens provide stately respite, while theaters compete for your applause. It's a neighborhood that draws admirers from around the world, all attracted to the luxe life in Paris.

Our 11 and 12 year olds had to pay adult fare in the metro (but youth and child other places like Eiffel Tower). Metro police will fine tourists that don’t know the rules and ignore the parisians that jump the turnstiles. Get the adult book of 10 and share and save the hassle of getting harassed by the police

In any case, it’s an organized scam. When they sell the “Pass Navigo Découverte” and the Mobilis Tickets, the useful informations are not knowingly given : write the name and first name and paste a photo on the Pass Navigo Découverte before using it, write the name, first name, and the first date use on the Mobilis Ticket before using it. By not informing people properly, they make them verbalisable in case of control. Moreover, I have not found anywhere in the transport regulations, any obligation to sign these tickets. The people who practice this scam are either real dishonest controllers or fake controllers. They are targeting tourists because they know that they are going to be afraid of having big problems with the police in a foreign country, and will prefer to pay in cash right away. Pay attention to these scammers, but also to the traffic signs in the corridors : if you take a one way corridor in the wrong direction, in case of control, it will cost you 25€ ..... and during this time, they are plenty of people cheating in transport without being worried at all !!!
