Full name


Paris' subway is known as "Métro" but its real full name is Metropolitain. We can still see it on some stations like here in the 18th arrondissement.

When I was in Paris we took the metro. I remember how confusing it was for us to catch the right train going the right direction, and how we had to hurry through the turnstyle to get on

You know.....Americans lost in Paris!! (O: (O:

«Louis» is happy that there has been a movement to preserve and restore the original Guimard designs for le Métro.

Well I guess I've either not been by one of these or I was oblivious. I"m going to keep my eyes out this time. Great shot. Thanks for the info Laurent.

I'm going downtown Charleston today for a Spoleto event --- sure wish that we had a Metro system!

I love the parisian 'metropolitain' entrances, here in Lisbon we've got one that was offered by the 'mairie de Paris' it's in Picoas.
