My wife and I used this extensively in our 3 days in Paris. Fast, easy to understand, clean-ish, tidy-ish, once you've navigated it a couple of times it comes easy. Personally I think it was a far better (and cheaper) investment than the hop on hop off bus. ...you feel more Parisian as well! public transport rocks!

We use metro lines to visit all Paris on our holidays. Simple to use, quick, easy to change the line and the cheapest vay to move along the Paris.

After standing in line at the CDG airport train office for 20 minutes, the clerk was helpful in getting me two metro tickets for travel on two different days and directions. The train into Paris north train station had delays several times. Finding the metro on lower levels took asking several people. The metro to the next stop went OK.... More

We only rode the M1 line but what I saw was super impressive. Clean. And safe! We were comfortable riding it at midnight. Easy to obtain tickets too. Worth a quick ride even if you don't need to use. The Louvre stop is particularly fun to see.

Do not travel on metro lines 4 and 5 in the rush hour. My husband and I travelled from st germain to the Zenith arena at around 6pm. I seriously thought I was going to be crushed. Be aware new travellers to Paris metro that the doors close very rapidly like a guillotine. And avoid Gare de Nord like the... More

We stayed outside of the inner city, at Montmartre, for a week. Our closest Metro station was Anvers. Our initial contact with the Metro staff was very positive; she spoke good english and took the time to describe the ticket alternatives. We each opted for a 3 day, 3 zone, unlimited ticket. Our first trip was daunting. It was extremely... More

It is possible to get anywhere in Paris. Stations are fairly close to each other throughout the city. It is easy to use and efficient. Buying multi day passes or ticket books of ten tickets called carnets, are the most economical way to ride at less than 1.50 a trip. The metro opens at 5:30am and runs until 1:15 most... More

It's so easy to travel around this wonderful city. Reasonable prices with reductions in price for the under 25's. But... be aware, pickpocket teams are everywhere. I was physically bustled into a train and the young girl kept pushing me as her friend jostled my husband and older children, I realised what was happening as she moved behind me and... More
