If you want to know Paris better, I suggest you take the ground public transportation. Even after many years of living in Paris, the best way to move around the city and sightseeing the town is by bus transportation. For example:
Bus line 69 will take you to Champs Mars (Eiffel tower), Gambetta (Cemetery Père Lachaise) going trough Invalides, Louvre museum, Town Hall, Chatelet and Bastille, Saint Germain, Saint Paul Church and Voltaire.
Bus line 42 will take you to André parc Citroën, Champs Mars (Eiffel Tower), Avenue Montaigne, Champs Elysées, Concorde, Madeleine, Opéra, and Gallerie Lafayette.
Bus line 72 will take you to Town Hall, Louvre museum, Royal palace, Alma Bridge, Trocadero, and Radio France.
Bus Montmartre will take you from Pigalle to 18th district Town hall (where you can really shop till you drop). This bus will also take you to the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur passing through the Moulin Rouge, Rue Lepic, Place des Abbesses, full of restaurants and night clubs.
On the buses you can buy one way tickets but in metro stations you can buy any type of tickets using the automatic distributers. Found out the Paris' bus map .
Be careful: Metro line 6 will not stop at the following metro stops from June 30th to September 5th: Place d’Italie, Nationale, Chevaleret, Quai de la Gare and Bercy. Please, use the Paris' bus map to find other ways to get there. I suggest you to buy one of these daily tickets during your stay in Paris.
All that’s left for me to do so is to say: HAVE A GOOD TRIP!

An exhibit dedicated to Grace Kelly Princess of Monaco is being held at the Hotel de Ville until 16 August 2008.
What better occasion for a weekend in Paris in one of our B&B in Paris! The exhibit is a tribute to the woman who marked an era and includes a photographic album by the most famous names in photography – portraying her both as an actress and in official portraits from her later life (Howell Conant, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn and others) – and extracts from Princess Grace’s correspondence with friends, including some of the most important personalities of the time like Jackie Kennedy, Alfred Hitchcock, Maria Callas and Cary Grant.
There are also some of her personal belongings on show such as part of her wardrobe –including her wedding dress made by Italian designers - and jewellery and accessories that set the fashions of the time, like the famous ‘Kelly bag’ created by Hermés. The cinema, the first part of her life, is widely represented through the montage of excerpts from her main films especially from ‘Rear Window’ by the English director Alfred Hitchcock, who described her as ‘boiling ice’ because of her icy yet emotional expression.
Also exhibited are short film segments that Grace Kelly shot herself, immortalizing some scenes from her daily life. Through the objects and images exhibited, we are witness not only to the fascinating human aspect of a woman who was both actress and princess, but also to the culture, fashion, ideas and contradictions of a whole era. An era that started in the 1940’s and 50’s, when there was a strong desire to live without thinking about the war that had just finished and it was ‘normal’ that a woman, successful actress and Oscar winner, left America and her career for love. Look at some portraits of the princess et look at some of Grace Kelly’s jewellery
From 10 June to 16 August - Hôtel de Ville, Salle Saint-Jean – 5, rue Lobau, F- 75004 Paris.
Free entrance every day 10am to 7pm except Sundays and public holidays
