Understanding the "Metro"

In Paris the subway system is called "Le Metro"

Look for the company logo to buy the tickets at newsstands

It is easy to use, just follow the sign then the colors...

Exploring Paris

Going yarn shopping in Paris is easy but you need a little preparation with maps. The city can be confusing to foreigners.
I included a map with the "arrondissements" or districts. There are 20 in Paris. It starts with the 1st one in the center of the city and continue in a shape of a snail.

You can find the district number on the upper part of the street signs at each corner.
If you get lost, just look at the sign and you will immediately know where you are.
