It is usually public transport, but due to the Covid-19 mesures this will most probably change for a while. The best way will be to move around by bike or scooter. But I would recommend you to ask that question again when the date of your trip gets closer.

Very difficult at the moment. The metro, buses and tramways are all operating (mask obligatory as from11th May). However you are not allowed to go further than one kilometre from your residence and just once a day for exercise. In addition, you are obliged to complete a form (available on www.interieur.gouv.fr) entitled 'attestation numérique de deplacement dérogatoire' (also in English). You must carry this with all the time together with your passport otherwise if you are stopped by the police (oh yes, there are frequent checks) you will be fined 135 euros. It's not the best time to visit Paris or indeed France at the moment. Things may ease a little after 11th May but don't expect too much. As all museums, monuments and restaurants are closed it would be wise to postpone your visit if you can to a later date. Good luck.

Hi Saini !

The best way to go around Paris is public transportation. Paris is amazingly well served: buses, metros, tramways, trains...

And as it is a crowded city, this is the fastest way to get where you want to be avoiding traffic jams. It is also the cheapest.

Otherwise, if you have to get somewhere far away or late at night, you can obviously get around by taking a cab. We have a lot of services like Uber, Kapten, Bolt, etc. But it can be more or less expensive depending on time and depend.

I hope my answer helps you. :)
