If you are in Paris just a day or two, the best way to go to the most important tourist attractions is to buy a one day Metro ticket (Carte Mobilis), that costs 5 euros, the cheapest. Be careful, Paris is divided into zones and the cheapest ticket is not valid for all the zone. But from experience it covers right about everything that's most important to see, in 1 or 2 days.
