Transport in the heart of Paris

Metro Paris

Paris has a substantial metro network. You can purchase a single metro ticket, a day ticket, or a multi-day ticket.

  • A single metro ticket costs around 2,10 euros and is good for 90 minutes.

  • If you wish to ride the Paris metro multiple times a day, then it may be more cost-effective to purchase a day ticket, which is known as Mobilis. A day ticket allows you to travel indefinitely through Paris for one day. The price of a day ticket is based on the number of zones you select.

  • If you wish to ride the Paris metro for several days, then you can consider purchasing a tourist ticket, which is known as Paris Visite Travel. A tourist ticket also entitles you to slight reductions at the cash registers of several well-known Paris sights. This discount is only valid if you purchase your entry tickets on the spot.

  • Please keep an eye out for pickpockets, particularly while riding the metro, where pickpockets strike regularly.
