Questions for those who know the PARIS METRO

Jump to last reply

In early June I will be spending five nights in Paris before joining a tour of Normandy. Staying at the Hotel Dauphine, 36 Rue Dauphine, not far from Pont Neuf. My focus will be on museums. The day after my arrival I expect to visit the Rodin Museum and then go to the Musee Marottan in the 16th.

Confession: I have never taken a subway (Metro, Tube) in Europe but intend to this time. Looking at the Metro map, I expect that I would take Saint Michel line from my hotel to Invalides, then transfer to Varenne for the Rodin where I will purchase my Museum Pass. For those familiar with the area, it this a walkable distance or should I take the Metro? I don’t mind walking a mile or so.

When I leave the Rodin, I expect to go from Varnenne to Invalides and then to Boulvainvilliers/La Muette and walk to the Marottan. I will return to my hotel (to freshen up and revive) by the same route.

Another day I expect to venture from my hotel to visit the Musee Camando and the Jacquemart-Andre, both near Park Monceau. I presume that these two venues are within walking distance. The Metro stops that I see in the area include St. Phillipe, Monceau, St. Augustin, and Miromesnil. Suggestions? The map looks confusing.

Another day I plan to take a tour of the Opera Garnier which I believe is walkable from the Pont Neuf, n’est ce pas? The other museums/sites on my agenda, including the Marais, should not include taking the Metro. I enjoy strolling.

Thanks so much….
