Transfer Paris Opera to Gare Lyon

What is the best way to transfer from the Paris Opera metro station to Gare Lyon? Is there a direct Paris Metro line?

Hi vermontdad, to see Paris Metro lines, you can go go to Google Maps; type in Paris, France; and select Transit from the More list in the upper right corner of the map.

To answer your question, there's no direct Metro line between the two locations. You probably want to take the M7 two stops direction Villejuif and switch to the M1 direction Chateau de Vincennes at Palais Royal. (Or IMO, I'd rather walk to Palais Royal...)

Vermontdad:

Take the RER, it runs directly: Teh RER's Auber station is interconnected with the Opéra Metro stop. From Auber it's 2 stops to Gare de Lyon on the A2 or A4 line.

Only hitch are longish walkways inside the station, but it beats transferring from one Metro line to a second one anytime.

Hope this helps. enjoy your trip.

Phil.

OP asked about the Metro, but yes the RER will get you between those points without changing trains or lines.

Yes, the RER A is the best connection.
