Do yourself a favor and get a map of the Metro. We are a family of 3, we bought 20 trip tickets at the automated ticket dispenser for 29 euro. You can get 10 trips for 14.50 if you want. This was enough trips for a 5 day stay to takes us anywhere in the city. We liked it a lot, coming form NYC it felt like we were back home except it was a lot cleaner..lol
Daily we were using about 6 trips on average. Only down side to the train is that there is no air conditioner, the train has open windows and you get the warm breeze from the tunnel. easy to make transfers and remember to always keep your tickets as if you are making a transfer you will need to use the same ticket and you can be fined for not having your ticket in the metro.

Convenient and clean even in August and easily accessible from all the places we visited in Paris. Beggars.

The last time we got a Paris Visite card it did not allow a Train from Gare de Lyon to Fontainbleau. The current card includes TER to Fontainbleau - Avon AND the connecting bus to the Chateau if you buy the 5 Stage edition. If flying into CDG you can pick it up at the train booking office SNCF in the Terminal and your covered to travel all Paris, Versailles, Fontainbleau and all points in between -this makes it good value and life so easy as long as you do not loose it. The Metro. Trams etc. will still have you thinking your a Sardine so have your olive oil handy for slipping in and out.
Note that the "A" RER line in central Paris is having work done and was not operating last week.

For our 3 days in Paris we used the Metro each day. I found the Metro easy to use, only one time did I have an issue with signage. The cleanliness depends on the route, some were better than others. However both the trains and the stations were much more comfortable than in the summer than other cities. I was not sweating like Barcelona. I also felt very safe but I will say be fully aware of your valuable when crowded.

We purchased 3 day tickets from Visit Paris and found that to be the easiest and most cost effective. For nearly every place you want to visit there is a nearby metro stop. You may need to switch train but you will get there and the trains are fairly regular, don't remember waiting more than 5 minutes. Again best, most cost effective way to get around Paris and buy the multi-day passes

The metro is always the quickest way around the city. The metro can be very confusing at first so take your time to understand the different lines, keep a map handy and try to plan out your route before going on the metro as the stations are normally quite busy. The biggest downside to the metro is that they get extremely busy especially at peak times so be careful, I would advise that if you are travelling with smaller children that you keep them as close as possible as the carriage can be completely full with no moving space, this can be dangerous for younger children as everyone departs at the same time.
