Hi everyone! My husband and I are going to Paris in a couple weeks and have somewhat of a unique circumstance. As he is traveling for work, we will be staying Sunday morning through Thursday in La Defense, and then checking into a hotel in central Paris on Thursday and then departing on the following Sunday.
I am unsure of what metro/train passes (if any) best meet our needs and are price efficient. Sunday we will probably be traveling from La Defense (which I believe is in Metro zone 3) to central Paris (zone 1). Monday I will be going to Disneyland Paris (so I need to take the RER A4 to one of the outer zones), and then Tuesday through Thursday we'll be traveling in and out from La Defense again. Friday, we'll be staying in central Paris and I was thinking of going to Versailles that day. Saturday would just be a central Paris day.
At first I was thinking of getting the 5 day Paris Visite pass for zones 1-6 since this would cover the trip to Disney and all our trips to central Paris from La Defense. However, when I see how expensive this pass is it doesn't seem to make much sense as I'd have to be using the metro A LOT to make up for the cost. Even if I bought a 5 day pass for zones 1-3 and paid out of pocket for the Disney RER it doesn't seem to be saving me anything.
However, if I bought the carnet of 10 T+ tickets I wouldn't be able to use them from or to La Defense since it's in zone 3 right? So should I just pay out of pocket for all the trips and maybe get a carnet once we move hotels? s there some other option I've forgotten about?
Sorry for such a long story! I'd love to hear some suggestions from those of you who are in-the-know! Thanks in advance!
