Getting Around Paris
Paris is one of the cities that is often best explored on foot. There is so much to see and experience that is can often go by too quickly if you are in a taxi or on a bus. Take some time to explore the city on foot, when you are not taking advantage of the transportation offered.

Outside of the Metro, the RER Train will take you outside of the city limits. It does offer some stops in central Paris, but it is often one of the better ways to explore the French countryside outside of Paris. It is also useful for getting to the airport or for getting to Disney.

The busses can be a great way to familiarize yourself with the city, and buses also often run later than the Metro, which is helpful if you are staying out late.
There are thousands of readily available taxis all over the city. Simply hail one from the street or have your hotel help you with reservations. Taxis are very affordable and are amongst the better methods of navigating the city. You’ll find that taxi drivers are friendly and knowledgeable about Paris.
Renting a bicycle is one of the great ways to get your way around the city. Bicycles are available from any number of companies, and many hotels now also offer their own rentals. With dedicated bicycle lanes and plenty of parking for cyclists, you might find that this is one of the better ways for you to explore Paris.
