for Paris …

The Quickest Way

The easiest and simplest way to move around in Paris is to take the metro and the RER train. The RER A station in Bry Sur Marne is located 500 meters away from the Vieux Puits. Consult maps and rates on the ratp.fr website or download the RATP app. Depending on the number of days you’ll be spending in Paris, you can take advantage of tourist transport tickets at attractive prices.

For More Adventure

For the more adventurous visitors and nature lovers, I’d urge you to consider bicycles as a mode of transport. You can leave the Vieux Puits house directly by bike (bike rentals possible) or rent a Vélib (the local bike share system) once in Paris. Vélib bikes are used a lot and are very practical. But, to avoid traffic hazards… prefer Sunday strolls.

More Discoveries

Finally, for the curious-minded and those who wish to visit the city differently, let yourself be tempted by sightseeing tours of the hidden Paris, by foot or by bike… as you prefer!
