"Metro around" Paris Transportation Tip by magictravelers

Paris Transportation: 1,526 reviews and 1,581 photos

  Metro from La Defense to Louvre
by magictravelers
 
 

If time is short, or unable to walk too much; or if you got tired of walking (Paris is flat, but huge); Metro is a great choice also. Stations are well signed and you can find maps of were you are so you can locate your destination (including Museums and monuments). Cheaper than Taxis.
Time: From %.30 am to 12:30 pm. Trains come every 5 minutes or less!

There are 15 lines (300 stations) and there are a number of passes that will save you some money. We bought 10 tickets for 6 euros on our last trip, but only because we had plans to go to Versailes for a day and spend another day at LA Defense. You might be better off with a pass.
