Paris Metro travel

Jump to last reply

I know there used to be something known as carte orange for traveling in Paris on the metro. Do I understand that has changed and/or has a new name? Is this something I can buy before leaving the states or does it need to be purchased in Paris? I also heard something about needing a small photo of each person for the card?

Since this will be our (myself, husband and two teenage kids) first visit to Paris, we honestly have no idea how often we'll be riding the metro. That said, we'll be in Paris over the Christmas holiday so it will be cold and we're assuming we'll want to do a little less walking because of the weather. We'll be there for a week and have no other outside day trips planned. We're staying in an apartment in the 5th (near the Seine and Notre Dame).

Any advice? Thoughts on this?
Thanks again!
