It is a flat-rate daily ticket, which allows unlimited access to the Métro, the RER trains to the stations included in the selected areas, the Ile de France buses and the tramways.

The cost is € 4,10 for zones 1 to 3, and € 8,95 for zones 1 to 5.
Which pass is worthwhile in Paris?
In principle, those who intend to stay in Paris for less than 3 days and make limited use of the metro can take the 10-ticket booklet, which is cheaper than the mobilis as long as you do not exceed 5 daily trips.
Those who stay for a longer period may want to consider the Navigo Discovery weekly, which at the price of € 22.80 (plus 5 euros the first time) offers the possibility of reaching even the most distant destinations such as Versailles.
Paris Visite is convenient if you intend to use the discounts to visit the attractions indicated, take advantage of the additional services or if you have to take the Orlyval, the only pass to include them.
The Paris Visite is more convenient especially when purchased together with a pass, taking into account that, in addition to unlimited travel, the price includes free access to all the main museums with preferential entrances that allow you to skip the queues, thus saving a lot of time . Young people under 26 have the Jeuness Week-End Ticket, to reduce transport costs.Tourist pass comparisonAll the info
