Is Paris safe at night? Is it safe for 2 women to use the subway at night?

Most of the city is safe at night, yes. There are however certain neighborhoods which we would not recommend single persons unfamiliar with their surroundings to visit at night. If you take a metro map and follow the various lines, we recommend avoiding the following areas after 11:00 pm.
  • All stations on Line 4, from ‘Strasbourg Saint Denis’ to ‘Gare du Nord’
  • All stations on Line 2, from ‘Gare du Nord’ to ‘Colonel Fabien’
  • All stations on Line 5, from ‘Gare de l’Est’ to ‘Bobigny Pablo Picasso’
  • All stations on Line 7, from ‘Gare de l’Est’ to ‘La Courneuve’
  • All stations on Line 9, from ‘Maraichers’ to Mairie de Montreuil’
  • All stations on Line 7, from ‘Tolbiac’ to Villejuif’
  • All stations on Line 13, from ‘Plaisance’ to ‘Chatillon-Montrouge’
  • All stations on Line 12, from ‘Porte de Versailles’ to ‘Mairie d’Issy’
