Out and about: transport and accommodation in Paris

Whether you’re spending a month, week or weekend in Paris, you’ll soon discover that Paris’s wide avenues would be perfect for cars... if only there weren’t so many! Parking is limited and expensive, so don’t waste your weekend in Paris sitting in jams, make for the Metro (subway) instead! Ideal for those in accommodation in Paris’s centre, the Metro’s 14 underground and surface lines criss-cross the city and offer many ticket options, from a single day or weekend in Paris to longer stays. Just keep an eye on your personal belongings, exercise caution at night, and if travelling at the weekend in Paris, be sure to check the relevant timetables.

Staying in suburban accommodation in Paris? The Regional Express Train (RER) network links the suburbs to the metro and central areas. Buses are numerous and frequent, but more useful for sightseeing than business journeys. Taxis are not cheap but prices are regulated and thus consistent, with the average price for a taxi ride within Paris around €10.
