Walk or take the métro. Paris is a compact city, about 6 miles across, and no building in Paris is more than a few hundred yards from a Metro stop. In Paris, cabs are expensive – you pay by distance and the amount of time in the cab. So, if you’re stuck in a traffic jam with the meter running, the cost of a short trip can be astronomical!
