Prenez le métro

When you're spending your weekend in Paris, you'll probably use the métro to get around. Paris's subway system is extensive and easy to use. It's a fast and efficient way to get from one point to another.

Look at the map of the Paris subway system on the "Plan du Métro Parisien" page. The system may look complicated, but it is set up in such a way that a person can travel from any station to any other station without changing lines more than twice.

Now visit the interactive "Subway Navagator" site. By entering your departure and destination stations, you can find out how to get from one to the other. Try it for yourself!
