Most Metro stations have ticket vending machines. You can select multiple languages and the red button is for CORRECT, the green button for ACCEPT. A big metal roller underneath the screen let you step through the options displayed at the screen.

Single t+ tickets are Euro 1.70; a booklet of 10 tickets is 12.70.

At the bigger Métro stations you can buy a Paris Visite travel card. This card comes in 1, 2, 3 or 5 consecutive days in zones 1-3 or 1-5 variants. Travel time validation starts at 5.30AM till 5.30AM the next day.
Prices for the Paris Visite travel card for the zones 1 - 3 variant:
1day Euro 9.75, 2 days Euro 15.85, 3 days Euro 21.60 and 5 days 31.15.

If you stay longer, you can opt for a week, month, quarter or even a year card.

A card for zones 1 - 2 is Euro 19.15 for a week and Euro 62.90 for a month.
