You have a variety of options for transportation in France. The train is a good way to travel anywhere in the country. A trip from Paris to Nice will take about 10 hours and cost you anywhere from 70 to 100 euro, or 80 to 125 dollars. If you are just looking to go from your lodging to the airport, you can either take a light rail, tram, or taxi. Light rails and trams will typically cost you around three euros for a one-way ticket. Light rail and tram tickets can also be used with the bus system for the city you are in. Most of the one-way tickets are good for a 90-minute period. Taxis can be a little bit more expensive, with a trip from Versaille to Paris costing around 10 euros, or just over 12 dollars. On average, a taxi trip will cost you two dollars a mile, with a three dollar starting fee.
