3 days in Paris with Mother and Wife

Jump to last reply

First time in Paris and travelling with Wife and Mother. Getting into Paris on 25th October for 3 nights. Need your suggestions please on the following:

1. Best way to travel around the city - do we buy a 3 days travel pass or just use the tube and bus and pay for point to point connections
2. Paris Attractions - Do we buy Paris Pass/Museum Pass as not getting good reviews about it or just get to the places and buy tickets. Its end of October so hoping shorter lines
3. Day trips to Loire Valley and/or Versailles - since we are staying in Paris for 3 days only, we can do only 1.
4. B&B - which part of Paris should we stay that can offer budget B&Bs but close to most of the attractions. Any suggestions on a good B&B that is friendly to old age visitors?

Additionally, my mother is flying to Germany after the Paris trip and we are planning to go to Lyon for 2 nights. Any suggestions on Lyon and day trips to Monaco and Cannes?

Would appreciate any other ideas and suggestions. :)
