Lots about the Métro

The Métro is the Underground Railway in Paris. Métro is short for "Métropolitain" which means that this is a train serving the central city area.

Nowhere in Paris is further than 400 metres from a Métro station. It is a very cheap and quick way to travel around a busy city.

The Métro is actually both underground and above ground. At times it runs on viaducts high above the city streets, as it does here near the Métro station of Glacière.
