A ride by the Paris Metro and then walking along Champs Élysées all the way the Triomphe de l'Étoile
The best way to get around in Paris is the Metro and by foot. The Metro system is impressive both to its size and how many lines there are. It's a mix of old and new lines. On some lines you need to open the doors manually when you are getting off the train and some lines are fully automatic with driverless trains and platforms doors. And then we have the smell, not particularly a bad smell but special. I remember the smell clearly from my younger days when I was there with my folks. As a wise man once said: The Paris Metro smell isn't easy to describe but here goes: eggy, garlic, bodies, feet, musty, drains, urine and ever so slightly piquant – like a particularly ripe Camembert.
