Crossing line 2 - De quelle planete es tu - 7In Paris, the metro lines offer routes across the city, as we all know. Sometimes I like to think about all of my favorite things that are across one line, and how they could be visited throughout the course of one afternoon.

This post is dedicated to a few of my favorite things across line 2.

Paris’s line 2 stretches from westward past the Charles de Gaulle Etoile all the way to Nation, in Eastern Paris. Along this route across Paris’s north end, you’ll pass residential areas, Montmartre’s starting point, the red light district, views of Paris’s railroads heading northwards to Belgium and Germany, and of course a few pretty damn awesome neighborhoods that are full of culture.

Along with my trusted Paris trotter, Anne, we started our journey with a refreshing drink at Le Bal Café, located right by Place de Clichy.

We were passing Chettinadu’s metro stop, and couldn’t resist popping by for a samosa or two and a Lion lager.

Crossing line 2 - De quelle planete es tu - 1After filling up on Paris’s best samosas, we hopped back on line 2 to head to one of Paris’s beer havens, La Fine Mousse, to meet fellow beer lovers Ana Clara and Yann-Yves.

    This is a great idea! You should definitely do a series with each metro line!
    I might stick to you for one of them ;)

      Ylenia, please tag along for one! Keep me posted which line you would fancy and we can plan it out… !

        Yeah let’s plan it! I’ll be out of town til the 11 but after that I’m pretty sure I can make it work whenever you can.
        Line 8 has lots of good stops (maybe too many?) but any line will be great I’m sure…
        Keep me posted!
