Your Paris travel accommodations can provide you with the perfect base for enjoying a fabulous vacation in this city of love, culture, and history.
Traveling around Paris is a simple matter on the metro, RER (express train), or bus. With roughly 300 metro stations in the city, you can be sure to find one near your vacation rental. Navigating the metro system is fairly straightforward, with quick and easy journeys downtown and convenient stations located within a block or so of major landmarks and attractions.
If you plan to visit the Eiffel Tower, take the RER C line to the Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel station. If you wish instead to stroll down the magnificent Champs-Élysées, you can hop on the metro to the Champs-Élysées/Clemenceau station. The beautiful basilica of Sacré-Coeur is within a short walking distance of the Abbesses (Line 12) or Anvers (Line 2) metro stations. You will relish the opportunity to visit this lovely church and watch the pavement artists at work in the surrounding village streets.
Your metro ticket is also valid for use on any bus or RER journey within the city of Paris. If you travel outside the city limits, make sure that you have purchased the correct ticket from the RER station. Purchasing a carnet (book of ten metro tickets) from a metro station or ticket machine might make the most sense if you plan to use public transportation often. Alternatively, you can buy monthly or weekly travel passes at metro and RER stations. If you are traveling with children, all kids under the age of four travel for free, while children between four and eleven enjoy half-price fares.
You will find a variety of available accommodations in Paris, ranging anywhere from cheap sleeps to luxury rentals. Fortunately, you will not need to worry about high costs of traveling around the city, as the metro, RER, and local bus services provide excellent links throughout Paris.
