Hi..I am planning to be in Paris for a few days next month and I had a question about buying metro tickets. once arriving in Gare Du Nord, if I wanted to buy a two day pass, can I do that? For the metro. Or do I buy a day at a time? i will only be there maybe 2-3 days. I've ridden the metro before but had the help of a friend with the ticket situation. I have not found the ticket booth people to be very helpful, and once was accosted by a band of three macho police on the metro searching for reasons to torment people and they gave me a very hard time because I had my foot resting on one of the chairs, barking at me in French, and demanded to see my ticket. I just want to be prepared if I meet any hostility or indifference which unfortunately happened last time.
Of course, this time no foot on the chair.
I am OK with paying per day..as long as I understand how to do it.
Also, if I want to take a day trip out to the countryside, like Versailles, how do I go about purchasing the additional train ticket return trip...? Will there be clearly marked ticket booths/machines?
Thanks in advance!
