The Parisian underground is very well organized. You can take a train at any time.

You can buy it online or at the first metro station you go to in the city.

Even if you decide of don’t buy a pass for museums, I suggest deciding in advance which museums to visit. Also, not all museums are part of this circuit. For example, the Louvre is not included!


And what about food? Food in Paris is quite expensive! Near the main attractions, tourist menus are on the agenda. If you prefer street food for lunch, you can choose between stuffed baguettes, crocques monsieur (sandwiches), or sweet or savory crêpes.

Last but not least, one more thing to know before coming to Paris is where to go shopping for souvenirs! If you would like to buy something special and typical for your parents and friends, the best area is Montmartre. Go shopping for souvenirs in the street that from the Anvers metro station climbs towards the Sacre Coeur hill.
