1 – The Paris Subway – Line Eleven
Line 11 of the Paris subway network is one of the last to be put into service in 1935. It serves the North-East of the capital, from Châtelet to Mairie des Lilas. This line 11 has a special feature: it is indeed the shortest of the Paris metro network with its 6 kilometers and 13 stations.
The Châtelet stop is very close to the Louvre Museum. In a few minutes walk, you will reach the Cour Carrée du Palais.
The Hôtel de Ville and Rambuteau stations will allow you to easily reach the Georges Pompidou Center, located a few meters away. Along with the Arts et Métiers station, they will give you a fast access to “le Marais” area where you can find all kinds of designer shops and cafes.
The station Hotel de Ville also leads you to the City Hall of Paris and can allow you to quickly reach the Ile de la Cité and the Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris.
The Republique stop is located at the mythical Place de la République. Since its renovation in 2013, it is the place to be for all Parisians and tourists passing through the capital.
Going up north of Paris, Pyrenees and Jordan both serve the park of Buttes Chaumont. You’ll only have to walk a few minutes to enter this gorgeous place.

4 – Paris Métro Tip 11
Think twice before asking a friend to meet you up at the exit of a specific Paris métro station. More often than not, there are several exits (la sortie), and they may be quite remote one from the other!
Same reasoning applies if you are going to visit a friend: when asking for his/her address, if you are planning on going there “en métro” ask for the nearest subway station and the exit name!
On each station of the Parisian métro, you have several maps:
- A map of the subway system
- A map of the area
If you are in a large station, consulting such a map could prove useful, so you select the right exit… Choosing the the wrong exit for your destination could mean a serious waste of time and energy!
