we used the metro over the weekend, although it was my husbands first use of any underground system he found it a little scary at first but then went on to travel on it all the time. We found it fairly easy to use as...More

The Paris Metro shares the characteristic with other big city subways of being able to move quickly across town while avoiding street vehicular street traffic. The stations are well marked above ground and the numbered lines make it easy to navigate, including changes. Whether you...More

The metro and RER are great because they are all interconnected and even if you get on the wrong train, you can easily switch lines. The stations are marked and the connections are marked before each entrance. The electronic ticket machines are easy to use....More

The stations smelled, were dirty, and poorly lit. The trains were covered in graffiti. The one nice thing about the Metro is the trains are on time.

The Metro goes everywhere you could possibly want to go in Paris. Every major sight, from the Eiffel tower, to Sacre Couer, to Notre Dame, to the Champs de Elysee, is all easily accessible with the purchase of a single ticket. The easy to read,...More

From all the city I’ve done, the Paris’s metro service is one of the worst. It’s the most expensive, it’s always crowded and the metros stink. The tickets are only valid 1 hour and you can’t even re use it if you want to change...More

Always too busy, always stinks and always feels like I’ve caught the lurgy after riding. It is a necessary evil to get about, and is reasonably priced and timely.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or
