comment How exactly does the Navigo pass work?
if you buy a week(a week is from Monday to Sunday, so if buy a week for instance on a Thursday, the week end on the Sunday), at the end of this week, you HAVE TO buy another week regardless use of the pass. you can't buy two week in advance. it why there are some queues on Monday or on the first day of the month. as i said before, if you stay 5 day, there are tourist pass that could be more usable...

if you buy a navigo decouverte, you don"t have to prove your paris residence. for dezonage, yes, you can go for all zone on week end and public holidays with a montly pass. you activate it when you pay the first time. (so you can buy a week tree month before)

comment Cité des sciences/Palais de la découverte - looking for differentiating factors
the difference beetween is at "palais de la decouverte" it's pure science and at "cite des sciences" it's more applied science. for instance, if you are a teacher and go to paris with your class, you will go to the palais de la decouverte.

comment European countries “shut down” in August?
there are a bit less train and it's the time where work on the train lines are made. so for exemple, in paris, after 20H, a part of the line is closed and replaced by bus. but nevertheles, metro are less crowed.

august in paris is quite good. there are many workers who are in holidays (so less commuters in metro) the night life is still good but everywhere you will see many tourist and it's the most expensive period for tourist attraction.

comment What is the difference between Eurostar first class and French TGV first class?
@Rich if you use the "frequence" subcription, maybe you don't have to buy a reservation but it's not the usual case.
