It’s no secret (but I suppose it’s not well known either) that I’ve always loved the Paris Métro. One of the things that I’ve always wanted to do is to ride on every single line. Since I’ve lived in Paris before, I’ve covered most of them, but not in a systematic way, and I’m pretty sure I’ve never been on line 9.
So, I’m thinking about going to Paris in the fall, and I would very much like to correct this situation by traveling on every single line all at once, just to get it over with. Being the kind of person that I am, I eventually got curious as to what would be the most efficient way (defined as being the way with the fewest stations) to cover all the lines, including the 3 and 7 bis, but not the tram lines or the RER. And now that’s what I want to do. Also, for elegance, I’d like the route to start and end at the same station.
The problem is that I have no idea how to figure this out or even if it is feasible for a computer non specialist to do for myself. So, I would greatly appreciate any help you may offer to help me through figuring this out. In return, when I actually do this, I will provide you with photographs of me traveling, perhaps in various comical poses.
Here’s a map of the Paris Métro in case you need one: http://mapsof.net/map/paris-metro
