Paris Metro

I'm going to Paris for 3 days (Friday-Sunday) for a job training weekend.

I'll arrive at Paris airport and have a day to kill before I have to start my training. My question is, how hard is the Parisian Metro to use - bearing in mind I can't even use the London Underground, being from London.

Re: Paris Metro

It's just easy. Just follow the instructions stated or posted there. If you really can't get it, then, you can ask for assistance.

Re: Paris Metro

I think it's comparable to the London Underground in many ways. I've never had any difficulty with it.

Ditto.

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Where are you staying? Might be better of catching a bus. Otherwise, just catch RER. And métro is easy as, just know which direction you're going. Actually I find the tube more confusing. It's not as well connected.
