A few ( stupid) questions 1st time to Paris

Jump to last reply

Ok, a few stupid questions for our 1st trip to France
1) We are staying at the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel on Boulevard Saint Jacques. What district is that in? I cannot seem to find that information. Also, any restaurant recommendation in the nearby vicinity? Bistro, nothing fancy.
2) I have heard mixed reviews about using the Metro. Some say to avoid and take a taxi, it will be safer. I think NYC subways are fine, (I live here) so I am not sure what to believe.
3) Do we want a Paris city pass or a Paris Museum pass? I am not sure.

Thank you all for your help, this is a wonderful site.
