Why the Metro is Your Best Friend in Paris

There is one solution that can save you from all of your worries: the Metro.

Ah… Paris. The most romantic city in the world.  A city full of lights, fashion, and fabulous food.  There are so many things to conquer in this city, and without having a Vespa, getting around on foot (which Parisians magically do in stilettos, I might add) will make you think about your aches more than the rich history and culture you are taking in.  There is one solution that can save you from all of your worries: the Metro.

When I was first told about the Metro and the very… interesting people that ride it, I must admit I was a bit afraid to go underground.  Yes, you must be very wary of the gypsies on it; certainly keep your bag by your side at all times.  But as long as you are forewarned about this, you can focus on the infinite number of places that the Metro can take you.  From Versailles to the Eiffel Tower to the Opera National de Paris, you will never run out of things to explore, all accessible by the Metro.

When in Paris, I was confronted with one of the most difficult traveling schedule problems: I had only one day to see all of Paris.  But, what sounded like a tragedy turned into a challenge.  With my long laundry list of touristy places to visit (the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Opera National de Paris, Le Notre Dame, the Champs-Élysées,) I thought this was an impossible feat.  But then I found out about the Metro.  With the help of the Metro, I could go anywhere in a short amount of time, knowing that I would be able to make it to my next destination.

There is something to explore at any of the Metro’s stops. So wherever you go, whatever adventure you want to embark on, buy the discounted pack of multiple Metro tickets because the Metro can take you there.
