I truly love “vintage Paris”. At least, that’s how I call it.
Any place that looks old, and from another time : I’m instantly in love. For example this metro station is unlike most that you’ll come across. First of all, it’s outside… I hate when the metro goes underground. The city is so beautiful, you want to be able to see it while traveling.
And they kept the architecture from the early XXth century, which is so Parisian. If you want to check the area on foot, I highly recommend. It’s Rive Gauche, super chill and safe neighborhoods. Take line 6, and stop at Saint Jacques 😊
