Paris itinerary - feedback, specifically Carnet vs. Navigo

Jump to last reply

Hi all. I'm heading to Paris very soon for 9 days, and am not sure whether my best transit option is to get a couple of Navigo Découverte passes, one Navigo plus a carnet, or just carnet(s) plus additional tickets for the far-out places. Here is my proposed itinerary (it's a flexible trip, so doesn't have to be done in this order except for the D-day beaches tour). Obviously there's a lot of "free time", so any must-do suggestions are welcome! I do plan to spend lots of that time walking and meandering - it's the "meandering" bit that makes me wonder if a pass might be good just for the flexibility, but I don't want to waste money either. We're staying at the Grand Hotel Saint-Michel.

Tuesday: arrive at CDG, take RER B to Luxembourg and walk to hotel; maybe Notre Dame and Sainte Chappelle in the afternoon
Wednesday: City center tour at 10am that meets at Cite stop (would probably walk to that)
Thursday: Louvre
Friday: Day trip to Chartres (metro to Gare Montparnasse)
Saturday: Pompidou
Sunday: D-day tour with Fat Tire (metro to Gare Saint Lazare)
Monday: Orsay, Orangerie, Arc de Triomphe?
Tuesday: Versailles
Wednesday: Montmartre, metro to Louis Blanc for concert that night
Thursday: RER B back to CDG for flight home

I may add in a couple of other walking tours, that sort of thing, but for now that's the rough plan. I don't know how cost-effective a Navigo Découverte would be. I'm a good walker.

Thanks in advance for your input!
