Fans of the movie Amélie will recognize the place instantly. In this small metro station and the triangular square that surrounds it, complete with a carousel inside, it looks as if time had stopped a century ago.
The metro entrance is exceptionally preserved in Art Nouveau style, including the lights and the sign "Metropolitain".
If you plan to take the subway to travel to it though, keep in mind that the stairs leading outside the station are very steep and that the Abbesses metro station is the deepest metro station in Paris. If you have the slightest trouble with your joints, you may prefer to use the nearby lift.
The station is open when metro lines are in service.
The Paris metro runs from 5:30 a.m. to 00:30 a.m. on Mon to Fri, and from 5:30 a.m. to 2:15 a.m. on Sat and Sun and nights before holidays.
