For your travel in Paris,I suggest you buy Paris Pass.

The Paris Pass offers you the most romantic city in the world, its attractions and shopping galleries at a bargain deal. From museums and monuments to urban transport and restaurants, the Paris Pass is dedicated to helping you make the most of Paris, whilst also allowing you save both time and money.

The Eurail Select Pass provides unlimited travel in 4 bordering countries covering France, Germany, Spain and Portugal.

An Eurail Select Pass is available in First and Second class, and this means that special fares can only be applied in First Class for adults and children, and in Second Class only for Youths.

With a Select Pass you can avail of unlimited travel on the national rail networks of the countries covered by your pass.

Reservations are mandatory on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains.

With a Pass the seat reservations will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares).

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "Seat Reservations“ & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!
