How to navigate the city using the Metro station close to the hotel

It serves important sites such as the Champs-Élysées avenue, the Louvre Museum and the business centre of La Défense. Paris metro 1 offers more connections to other metro and RER than any other metro line in Paris.

Tourist attractions on Paris metro 1

Paris metro 1 crosses Paris in its centre from the east to the west on a nearly perfect straight line following the shape of the Champs-Élysées avenue. Many stations on the line are located close to monuments or tourist sites.

The business centre of La Défense, one of the biggest in Europe, is located at station La Défense, the terminus station of line 1 of the metro of Paris. The Arc de Triomphe, located on the Étoile square, is an arch commissioned by Napoléon to celebrate the victories of the army of the French Empire. It is served by metro station Charles de Gaulle – Étoile. The whole Champs-Élysées avenue is crossed by Paris metro 1, with stations Charles de Gaulle – Étoile (top of the avenue), George V, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Champs-Élysées – Clémenceau and Concorde. The Bastille square, the symbol of the French revolution where the Bastille jail was standing, is located next to the metro station holding the same name.
