Hi Poo

A day pass for the Metro will cost around £12 GBP and works out pretty cheap especially if you’re hopping on and off trains as you go sightseeing and generally experiencing all the delights of the city. These day pass tickets are valid for zones 1 to 3 which covers the central city areas. Do your sums before you buy a Paris Metro day pass though, if you only need to make a few single trips in zone 1, then buying tickets per trip could work out cheaper.

France has a very good rail network in and around Paris. Not sure sure I understand your question: "Is it possible to travel near France by train " Can you re-phrase?

[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]

Get a Navigo Card (cost 5 euros) and have a photo of you as you will need to be valid.
You can buy it from all the big stations and recharge it after with what zones you need (get a map with Rer, metro, tram and bus Noctillien, again from the station)
To travel for a week in Ile de France between zones 1-5 cost you around 34 Euros per person.
With that card you can use...Rer, Metro, Tramway, Bus during the day and night (Noctillien) all unlimited.
If you go around just in Paris you only need zones 1 and 2 which is around 20 Euros per person.
Atention: The week starts always from Monday.

Best of luck...
