Paris Metro service Christmas 2013

14 December 2013.

I enquired what the Metro service would be on 25 December and 26 December 2013 and received the following reply from RATP the public transport operator.

"  I understand your request and I can confirm that the Metro runs on December 25 as a Sunday and public holidays (a little less traffic)and 26 December as a normal day. "

Thats's more or less a normal service.

Joyeux Noël !
