"underground" Paris Transportation Tip by catherineneill

Paris Transportation: 1,519 reviews and 1,564 photos

getting to the centre from charles de gaulle was really easy, even late on a sunday afternoon. buses come right to the arrivals and are very frequent. te journey let you see a bit of paris, before dropping you off right at l'arc de triomphe.

we had to get the underround to our accomodation, which was quite far out. we realised we could never walk around paris and thought the underground would work out very expensive. fortunately we met a worker in the gare de lyon and he advised me that since i could speak french i should ask for the week ticket, which is really for locals but i could get it all the same. the normal tourist one costs twice the price apparently.

underground well signed and easy to use. we were a little scared at nights as it was quite deserted by gare de lyon but we were fine.

Type: Subway/Metro

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
