My husband and I will be going to Paris this month for 3 days (Tue-Thurs). From looking at various threads, it seems like most people recommend and prefer the Navigo Card over the Paris Visite and the carnet. But at current prices (may'11), a one week 2 zone Navigo Card is costing Eur 23.35 (5+18.35) as opposed to a 3 day Paris Visite 1-3 Zone card which costs Eur 20.7! So why does the Paris Visite card have such a bad rap??
The cheapest option seems to be the carnet which costs Eur 12 for 10 tix, but I'm worried about these being difficult to use. Are they really that difficult to use, can they be used on all (buses/trams/trains/metro) modes and is there such a thing about keeping track of which direction in terms of validity of tickets?
Very, very confused :-(. Would really appreciate any advice that can make my life a little easier.
