Ceremonies of November 11: metros and RER disrupted in Paris

Sunday 11 November will be the day of the centenary celebrations of the 1918 Armistice. For the occasion, many heads of state and government are invited, in addition to the expected crowd as every year. For security reasons and for the running of parades and other celebrations, some metro and RER stations will be closed to the public.

It will therefore take precautions to move and if the subway will be disturbed, no need to prefer the car: traffic will also be extremely complicated in much of the capital.
