"It's really not that bad!" Paris Transportation Tip by Canadian_girl

Paris Transportation: 1,524 reviews and 1,575 photos

After all the horror stories I've heard, I actually found the metro to be very simple and convenient. Didn't even get mugged, although I still think it's important to keep a VERY close eye on your purses and wallets, as pickpockets apparently have a habit of grabbing your things and then pushing you onto the train just as the doors close -- and then you're stuck!
But I tend to think it's much more fun to discover Paris (or any city) on foot. Fairly convenient too!
