"Metro" Paris Transportation Tip by apiapi

  Inside the metro
by apiapi

Paris metro is the best way to go around the city. There are metro stations everywhere you go. Get yourself a weekly pass if you are going to use the metro a lot. You can purchase the pass at any metro station. According to some guide the metro stations are built to be 500 meter apart. You don't have to worry that you will get lost as metro stations are everywhere and once you are in the metro you can reach any part of the city within minutes. The only challange for me is reading the metro guide as there are 15 lines with more than 300 stations. Coming from a place where we have only 3 lines and less than 100 stations it's quite a challange. Some of the stations are quite confusing to navigate. Happy exploring the metro.
