Public Transportation in Paris

Jump to last reply

My family of 4 (2 adults and two teenagers) will be visiting Paris in June. We will be arriving from Brussels by train and will be heading to London by train after leaving Paris. We have rented a flat in the 19th arrondissement near Parc De Buttes-Chaumont. I have bought a Paris guide but after reading it I am still confused about a few things. Please help with the questions below.

1. From Brussels we will be arriving at the Gare du Nord in the early afternoon on a Wednesday. Should we be taking a taxi to our flat or the subway? I am thinking a taxi might be better because we will have luggage. Would it be much more expensive? I heard that taxis charge extra per person and per luggage.

2. Same question goes for the day we depart from Paris to go to to London from the Gare du Nord

3. We will be staying in Paris for 10 days - arriving on Wednesday afternoon and leaving on Saturday morning. Since the 19th arrondissement is on the outskirt of Paris we will probably need to take public transportation to get to the many Paris sites. Is there some sort of discount pass we should get? My guide book tells me I should check out the ratp site but every time I have tried, it has been out "temporary out of order"
