The Paris Métro

by sunnywong

The Métro has spread its tentacles since Line No 1 opened between Porte de Vincennes and Porte Maillot in 1900. With 15 lines, 199 km (124 miles) of track, 368 stations, 3500 carriages and six million passengers a day, it is easily one of the world's biggest and most efficient underground railway systems. A ticket costs eight francs, but it is cheaper to buy a 'carnet' (packet of ten tickets). One of the delights of riding the Paris Métro is descending through an Art Nouveau entrance to the station below.

Paris Metro

by Lilasel

The Métro in Paris opened on 19 July 1900, its first line being from Porte de Vincennes to Porte Maillot (not surprising it is now the line number 1).
Now the system has 199 km (124 miles) of track and 15 lines. There are 368 stations (not including RER stations), 87 of these being interchanges between lines. Every building is within 500 metres of a métro station. There are 3500 cars which transport roughly 6 million people per day. There are 15000 employees of the métro (1989 statistics).

Paris Metro(politain)

by Fam_Stoica

The Paris Metro(politain) is the fastest and most convenient transportation system. The Metro opened on 19, July 1900, its first line from Porte de Vincennes to Porte Maillot (line number 1). Fulgence Bienvenue was the engineer in charge of construction, the architect Hector Guimard being responsible for the Art Nouveau entrances (see the photo - Abbesses station designed by Hector Guimard between 1898-1904). The system has over 200 km of track and 16 lines; the line 14 is completely automatized. There are 368 stations (not including RER stations), 87 of these being interchanges between lines. Every building is within 500 metres of a métro station. There are 3500 cars which transport roughly 6 million people per day.

The Paris metro

by Maximilian21

The Paris Metro is the best way to get around metropolitan Paris. Similar to the underground in London it is known for its efficiency and puntuality.
It was originally known as the "Chemin de Fer Métropolitain" ("Metropolitan railway"), then "Métropolitain" and quickly abbreviated to "Métro.

The Métro opened on 19 July 1900, its first line being from Porte de Vincennes to Porte Maillot (not surprising it is now the line number 1). Fulgence Bienvenüe was the engineer in charge of construction, the architect Hector Guimard being responsible for the Art Nouveau entrances (see image). The system has 199 km (124 miles) of track and 15 lines. There are 368 stations (not including RER stations), 87 of these being interchanges between lines. Every building is within 500 metres of a métro station. There are 3500 cars which transport roughly 6 million people per day. There are 15000 employees of the métro.

On a personal note. I did find the metro a little dull and dreary. Its not a pleasant place to be alone late at night. Besides that its a great way to get around.

parking&other f.a.q. about paris

by codrutz

Hi, I'm planning a motor trip which includes (in fact as a main destination) Paris. I will be travelling with my car or with a rented one. My basic question is:

Where should I leave my car in or arround Paris, so it would not cost me much and be pretty safe, and to be free for some days to walk in Paris and use the transportation system?

Also I'm very interested in accomodation options. I'm not looking in the current trip to a luxury stay, so can somebody please advice me on some budget accomodation, that's under (or way under prefferably) 50 euro per room. As long as it's clean and with basic facilities in the room, and I can have a metro station close, it can be anywhere.

Thanks!!

I am going to stay at this hotel Tolbiac, but I have no idea what it is like, because I haven't been there yet. It is the cheapest I have been able to find. It is located south of Place d'Italie and the website is www.hotel-tolbiac.com.

Tourist attractions in Paris

by SaneAjay

I am planning to visit paris for 3 days with my wife and 8 years old daughter. I would like to have help from the VT friends regarding:
1. One french Engineer I met in India, suggested ETAP Hotels for stay. I saw the site and have shortlisted ETAP Hotel PORTE D'ITALIE, ETAP Hotel PORTE DE BERCY, ETAP Hotel PARIS PORTE DE VINCENNES since my plan is to visit 1 day in paris, One day in EuroDisney (East Paris) and the last day at Versailles ( South west Paris). Any idea about the hotels or the surroundings in respect of safety and connectivity to city center?
2. What could be the 'Do not Miss' type attractions and the favourable timings that can be a mix of some thing for us as well as daughter? (Museums can be boring for the kid)

Re: Tourist attractions in Paris

by ettenaj

Apart from the obviouse attractions, I would visit La Defence for something that little bit different, and only a metro ride from the centre. Enjoy your trip, I first went there when my son was about 8 years old and he loved it then, but if he went back he would see a vast improvement to the area. Give it a try, have fun

Re: Tourist attractions in Paris

by ruxi

Bear in mind that Etap hotels may be far away from a metro station..be sure to be close to one to avoid walking. Choose your hotel based on this criteria. There is a site that shows city plans and metro stations if you want is www.pagesjaunes.fr (yellow pages). You only have to tape the address in.

In Paris your daughter would enjoy: climbing the Eiffel Tower, going to Sacrecoeur, have a boat ride on Seine river (you can take one right beside the eiffel tower): Louvre gardens with the pyramid, la Defense with its sky scrapers.

Re: Re: Tourist attractions in Paris

by GUYON

ETAP hotels are on the outskirts or suburbs and you would be far from everything.
Choose a hotel more centrally located : some are cheap.

The major attractions are :
- Tour Eiffel
- Notre Dame
- Arc de Triomphe et Champs Elysees
- Louvre museum
- Sacre Coeur and Montmartre
- Versailles castle (45 min from Paris)

Lodging in Paris suburbs

by carim

I'm taking the family in July to Paris for a week and was wondering if anyone knows of a nice suburb location close to metro which might have affordable hotels for a 4 member family.

Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

by GUYON

To lodge in the suburbs is not the solution to get a reduced price. You can find cheap rooms in the center.

Look at my answer to the following question.

Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

last time I was in hotel etap porte de vincennes paris 20e

I paid 44 euros for the room;but do they accept 4 people? not sure;maybe you will need 2 rooms

Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

by GUYON

The budget hotels in the outskirts of Paris (like Etap or Formule 1) have rooms for 2 + a child with a good but minimum comfort.
Formule 1 : 35 Euros per room

Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

by flyfish

I am not sure what you mean by affordable. My family of four is visiting Paris in June. We found several centrally located hotels with a room for four for 140+ euro. We picked ours from a guidebook that specifically listed quad rooms in the hotel description. We chose Hotel de la Bourdonnaise near the L'Ecole Militaire.

Re: Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

by GUYON

Great location near the Tour Eiffel.

Their website is :
http://www.hotellabourdonnais.com/

The price for 4 seems to be 175 Euros but you may have a reduction ?

Re: Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

by carim

I heard of this chain, is it decent and how closeis it to train/metro stop?

Re: Re: Lodging in Paris suburbs

by GUYON

The hotel is close to the metro station "Ecole Militaire" on line 8.

This line allows to reach directly : Place de la Concorde, Madeleine, Grands Boulevards, Bastille.

And it has several connexions with the main lines of Paris.

It could be important to notice, the hotel is near the Tour Eiffel, at 10 mn walk.
