The Paris Metro is one of the oldest and most extensive in the world, with 16 lines and over 300 stations. Each line has its own unique character and history, with some dating back to the late 19th century. From Line 1 which runs from La Défense to Château de Vincennes to Line 14 which is the newest line and connects Saint-Lazare station to Olympiades in just 15 minutes - there is something for everyone. The metro stations themselves are also worth exploring as they often feature stunning architecture and artwork. For example, Arts et Métiers station on Line 11 has a steampunk-inspired design with portholes while Louvre-Rivoli station on Line 1 features reproductions of famous artworks from the nearby Louvre museum.
