5 Best Paris Travel Apps To Plan The Perfect Trip


One of the app you will use the most during your trip if you plan to use the metro to get around the city.
Which you will at some point as it is really convenient to get from one point to another. Even though I still think one of the most effective ways to explore a city is by walking and getting lost!

With the RATP app you can get every itinerary you need from point A to B. With the différents options you can choose which transportation you want to use Metro, Bus, Team or even Velib (bicycle to rent on the street). It’s a very convenient and basic app that nearly all the Parisians uses to know itinerary or to know the timetables.

You can also check the online RATP website.


One thing you should never assume when travelling to a non-English speaking country is that everyone will be able to speak English. Sure English is a worldwide language but that doesn’t mean everyone does.

So its best for you to know at least a few words, a little effort can go a long way! If you get a Larousse dictionary you can be sure to get every word you need to know no matter what the situation. Not only it’s one of the best Paris travel apps but it’s useful everywhere in France

La Fourchette or the fork in English is the best app to help you decide where to eat by finding out the best restaurants!

Not only this app helps out with the rating and to discover new places, but you can also book directly from it as well as get a discount. Which is great to keep a budget during your trip to Paris, as it can get quickly pricey, and indulge yourself at the same time.

You may also discover some great restaurants you may have not if you’re looking at a traditional Paris travel guide.


City mapper is another travel itinerary that can be very useful when you visit Paris. If you plan to use more than just the Parisian metro and explore further than Paris this app will help you out in a more detailed way than the RATP one.

It gives you the price of your journey as well as the minutes and even the calories you’ll burn if you decide to take the bike or walk! You can also find the duration it would take on several taxis company such as Uber or G7.

If you use the metro it will also let you know if it’s best to get on at the front middle or back depending on where you’ll get off to be as close as possible as the exit. Pretty amazing!

    Nice! I’m always on the lookout for good travel apps. They seem to change from city so it’s really handy to have a list of apps that locale-specific. Thanks! ☺️
