1 – “Le Métro” – Ligne Deux
“La ligne 2” of the Paris subway is the second oldest Paris métro line of the network, and it’s quite special since the train gets out of the ground from “Barbès Rochechouart” station to the “Jaurès” stop offering a nice view of the city.
The station “Anvers” will give you accès to “Montmartre”, and the “Père Lachaise” stop to the famous eponym cemetery. The second line of the Paris subway stops at “Charles de Gaulle Étoile” offering a convenient alternative to the “ligne 1” which can get crowded during rush hour.

4 – Paris Métro Tip 2 – How to Connect Between Trains on the Paris Subway
If you are riding the Paris subway, it’s likely you will have to make connections (une correspondance). If it’s a short one, you’re in luck! Just be aware that some are very long and involve a lot of stairs… So sometimes, you’ll be better off walking in the street, and enjoying the “fresh” air of Paris, rather than making a long connection underground (+ stairs!!) for only one or two stops…
If you do have to make a connection, on the map, look carefully at the line; each station is indicated by a point on the line. If two lines cross, you have a white circle (or an oval), which indicates the possibility of changing from one line to another. It is there that you should exit your train, walk through the halls and follow the signs that will indicate the path to your connecting train.
For example, if you are in the subway at the “George 5” station on line 1, and you want to go to “Opéra,” you must go in the direction of “ligne 1 – Château de Vincennes” then, change at the station “Concorde,” go in the direction of “ligne 7 – La Courneuve” and get off at “Opéra.”
There are great great apps to prepare your subway trip.
