How many bus/metro rides in Paris is too many in a day?

Jump to last reply

Planning ahead for a (third) trip to France, including 3 days Paris.
Unsure whether just to buy carnets, or Paris Visite, or Mobilis, or ??? The latter two seem more economical if we ride 3 or more times one way each day.

Spouse is feeling aged (73, knee replacement), says we should take bus/metro short distances rather than walk. e.g., gare de Lyon to Isle de Cite, or Louvre to Rue Cler.
Seems reasonable, but the down side is we could spend a lot of time waiting for bus and riding on bus.

Anyone with experience with this, i.e., numerous rides/day?
