Looking for a reliable, efficient and cost effective choice to navigate Paris?
With the Paris The Métropolitain, or Métro, you're guaranteed a quick, cheap and colourful ride as there are many talented buskers who hop from train to train.
There is a great deal of walking involved in many stations as there are a lot of long tunnels. While walking up and down the stairs and through the tunnels, you come upon unexpected delights, such as a chamber orchestra playing Baroque music, a lone violinist playing for coins or a jazz combo.
Navigating the Metro is fairly easy, as each station posts a map of the entire subway network. Every subway line is color-coded and numbered, and is given a name according to the last station. You don't have to look hard to find one as every building is within 500 metres of a metro station and the entrances are indicated by an "M" or with signs saying "Metro" or "Metropolitain".
Tip: People take strollers on the Metro all the time, but there are stairs in the stations, and it's not easy to maneuver the stroller with just one person.
