It has 302 stations, of which 62 have transfers between lines.

    Paris Street; Rainy Day is a large 1877 oil painting by the French artist Gustave Caillebotte , and is his best known work. It shows a number of individuals walking through the Place de Dublin, then known as the Carrefour de Moscou, at an intersection to the east of the Gare Saint-Lazare in north Paris. Although Caillebotte was a friend and patron of many of the impressionist painters, and this work is part of that school, it differs in its realism and reliance on line rather than broad brush strokes.

    Les cloches de Corneville is an opéra-comique in three acts, composed by Robert Planquette to a French libretto by Louis Clairville and Charles Gabet based on a play by Gabet.
