Trip Report Slightly different Paris metro stations

Jump to last reply

Those of you who have already been to Paris and taken the metro have certainly noticed that there are a few stations that are somewhat different from the ordinary stations.

Sometimes, something obvious is commemorated, such as at Bastille or Louvre, but sometimes the displays are mysterious and confusing.

I went through quite a few metro stations in recent days and have compiled a report about quite a few of the metro displays. Parisians rarely have the time or the desire to look at this stuff, but I hope that tourists show a little more interest, since isn't that one of the reasons that you are coming to Paris?

Anyway, for those who are not totally mesmerized by the buses, here are some of the things that you can see in the metro: http://tinyurl.com/metroquirks

This is not at all a complete report, and I plan to add more items shortly.
