About the Paris Metro:

The Paris Metro is a rapid public transportation system offering 16 lines, numbered 1 to 14, including the minor lines 3bis and 7bis. It is easy to use by identifying on the map which color or number line the stop you are trying to get to is on, and noting which stations to transfer at.

The direction to take the subway in is always the last stop of the line in the direction of your destination.

The Metro is quite safe, convenient (metro stops are close together, so you never have to walk too far), very frequent (usually between 1-5 minute waits, except for later at night), and runs between approximately 5.30 AM and 12.45 PM.

Though you will mainly need the Metro to get around Paris, there are also bigger trains that run towards the suburbs, called the RER, lines A, B, C, D, and E; tramways that travel along the peripheries of Paris, lines 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 5, and 7, and a multitude of bus lines.

Buying a ticket is simple: you can either purchase them directly from the machine if you have change (highly recommended as it can save you a headache) or a credit or debit card with a chip. Otherwise, some stations take bills, and most have a teller that can assist you or sell you tickets.

In terms of fare, for a single ride on the metro, a “Ticket t+” costs €1,70 (this includes transfers). You might want to purchase a special pass for 1, 2, 3, or 5 days that allows unlimited access to the Metro. These start at €10 (reduced fare for children). You can also buy a weekly pass, but be aware that it runs from Monday to Monday, not a week from when you buy it (same goes for a monthly, which starts on the 1st and ends on the last day of the month).

Leaving a Metro station, you will find that there are sometimes several exits with neighboring street or monument names, some may be closer to your final destination. It might be useful to know which exit to take, but they are all relatively close, so it isn’t a big deal if you aren’t sure.
