Best Apps To Get Around Paris
One app you will use the most during your trip is if you plan to use the metro to get around the city.
Which you will at some point as it is convenient to get from one point to another. Even though I still think one of the most effective ways to explore a city is 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 Parisians use to know itineraries or timetables.
You can also check the online RATP website.
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.
Using the metro 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 to the exit. Pretty amazing!
Visit Paris By Metro
Another useful app to get around Paris run by RATP, this apps also caters to show you the city’s main landmarks and attractions as well as the instructions to get there by public transports. Hence the name of the apps, it’s a fun way to easily get around the city and not miss anything.
Are you more of a bike person rather than a public transports? Then no worries, you can always hop on a bike.
Although Paris’ traffic can be a bit crazy and while drivers of the city are accustomed to bike, and, the city has a lot of bike lanes make sure to always ride carefully.
With the Velib’ app, you’ll be able to identify the closest docking stations and how many bikes are available – for pick up or for deposit.
Apps To Help You Communicate With The Locals
English French Dictionnary
You should never assume when travelling to a non-English speaking country that everyone will be able to speak English. Sure English is a worldwide language, but that doesn’t mean everyone does.
So you should 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 phrase you need to know, no matter what the situation. Not only it’s one of the best Paris travel apps, but it’s valid everywhere in France.
