A bit to get your head around!

It is a bit complicated at first to negotiate, but really once you get the hang of it, it is really good. The trains seem to come every minute! The Louvre station is beautiful!

During a weekend in Paris myself and my partner use the metro to travel around Paris. It was easy to use, clean and not to busy.

The Paris metro is one of the best. Its fast and very effective. You practically have the stations near every important attraction, be it Disneyland, Louvre etc. We were initially about the French language, i.e. whether at the metro stations we would be able to communicate with the local person....but believe me...they were awesome ! They were always ready to... More

The Paris metro is probably my favorite metro system to use, it is so efficient and you can get close to anywhere you are trying to go on it. There is also a great app you can get that would be really helpful for tourists, you just enter in what station you are at/what landmark you are near and where... More

I have been using the Paris Metro and RER since 2005. For me it is quick and easy to get around. It may be simpler for me having used the subways in New York. But throughout my journeys it one of the best modes of transport around the world I usually will use the Metro in whatever city I am... More

Overall it's great. It is probably the easiest way to get around in Paris. No matter where you want to go there is probably a metro stop close by. It is definitely not for anyone with any kind of disability (many stations are stairs only), and the trains do get very crowded, so avoid typical rush hour (9am , 5pm).... More

Always take the metro! Paris Visite Pass for three days is like $22euro. incredible value as the Metro gets you EVERYWHERE you need to be. Wish it went NSEW like the London underground, the Metro requires you to know the terminus towards which you wish to head. so you find yourself pulling out your map frequently to identify the name...

Any other way than using the metro (or walking) to travel in Paris is too expensive or to stressful. The prices are fine and if you buy a bundle with 10 tickets or the Paris pass you can also travel for more days. Always on time, never too full, fast and uncomplicated. This is how you wanna travel in a... More

Last time we used the Metro I was robbed by several youth whose accomplice was an old lady. They were very good at what they do as I never felt a thing! They must have seen me pull my money out to purchase the tickets at the vending machine and knew I had a goodly sum in my front pocket.... More

We got a book of tickets to save money. Overall the system is efficient and the best way of getting around Paris. Safety was not of major concern although need to be careful and mindful in some of the touristy stations and watch out for pickpockets. Note: not many people can speak English in the Metro system. But we managed... More
