Before we went to Paris we bought a guide book that gave information about the underground Metro railway, including a map of the system.
So we decided to buy Metro tickets on line before we went ,save having to find correct change/queue up ect , and at the same time having to learn how the system works.
Once we worked out how to use it or how many times you could use a ticket we found it very useful.
It seemed to us , that if you use a ticket on a certain line u could use it again the same day (not sure how many times) but if you did a cross over to a different line you would have to use a new ticket.
The way the different lines work is quite like the London underground .
We found this a very effective way to get around we were never kept waiting to long for a train ,overall we found the system very good.
We bought ten tickets and used them all because certain places we went to are a lot further in reality than they look on the map.
Also they have lots of different trains including a double decker type.
I am very pleased we bought the tickets before hand, the Metro helped give us a good holiday.
Hope you find the same.
P.S make sure you get a Metro map(our hotel gave us one as well) a take it with you.
