French Underground and Tube

Similar to the English tube, undergrounds in France are considered to be a very useful, effective way to go all over the town of Lyon, Toulouse, Marseille - to give but a few.

Whilst Paris boasts the most ancient and authentic French underground - the famous Métro, every big city of France has its own version of the tube. Some recent undergrounds are completely automatic, others offer a great comfortable interior.

You will find below useful links to the companies that manage the different French cities' undergrounds:
