  1. Metro/RER (underground/subway):
  • On the Parisian metro system, tickets can be purchased individually (1,80€) or in the form of a book of 10 (a "carnet" 14,10€) and each ticket is valid for one trip, regardless of the distance traveled.
  • These tickets can be purchased at almost all metro stations (metro machines normally accept cash and credit card, but using coins is more convenient).
  • Please, keep your ticket with you until you exit the metro/RER.
  • When you stamp your ticket in metro gates, put your luggage first, they close quite rapidly. If they are too heavy/ large for metro gate, ask the ticket seller to open the main metal gate.
  • Look carefully at the signs, there are often several ways to reach the metro platform:  stairs, elevators, or escalators. But sometimes there are only stairs.
  1. Bus

Using the metro is preferable, but here are some indications for the bus. Use the same tickets as for the metro, one ticket per trip but without the right to transfer. You must punch the ticket as you get on the bus. Buses which pass near UNESCO are the 28, 80, 82, 87 and 92. For further information on travel in Paris and the Paris region, you may consult the Paris Transport website:
