1 – The Paris Subway –  Line Eight

Line 8 of the Paris metro departs from Balard, southwest of the city. The line, 38 stops long, crosses the capital to end in Créteil, Southeast of the Paris area. Starting from Balard, line 8 goes up along the Seine on the left bank and then continues along “les Grands boulevards” and finally east of Paris.

It is therefore the ideal line to get quickly in Paris without taking a suburb train.

Line 8 runs near several points of interest in Paris:

  1. L’école militaire, the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower (École Militaire station)
  2. Invalides, including the tomb of Napoléon Bonaparte (Invalides station)
  3. Place de la Concorde, including the Obelisk and the Tuileries (Concorde station)
  4. Church of the Madeleine (Madeleine station)
  5. The Opera Garnier (Opéra station)
  6. The Grands Boulevards (between the stations Madeleine and République)
  7. Place de la République (République station)
  8. The Bastille and its adjacent modern opera house, the Opéra Bastille (Bastille station), which is very close to Le Marais and La Place des Vosges as well.
  9. Cité nationale de l’histoire de l’immigration and the Aquarium of the Palais de la Porte Dorée (Porte Dorée station)
  10. The Bois de Vincennes and Paris Zoological Park (four stations between Porte Dorée and Charenton – Écoles)

4 – Paris Métro Tip 8

If possible, avoid taking public transportation in Paris between 7:30 and 9:00 AM and 5:00 and 6:00 PM.

It is rush hour, which is the time where there are the most people, no places to sit, and you are squeezed against other people. It is very warm and unpleasant.
