This was one of the first stations we went through and it was the best looking one! The titles are amazing and literally cover any available wall space. According to Wikipedia;

” Concorde is distinctive due to its décor; the tunnel for line 12 is decorated with tiles spelling the Déclaration des Droits de l’Homme et du Citoyen.

Ezra Pound‘s famous Imagist poem, In a Station of the Metro, was inspired by this station.”

All of the stations have a distinct character, all the stations look the same, and they all have the vintage feel to them. There is some modern signage but that is not placed on the walls.

Its nice to see the metro have a continuous look, not like our stations in the underground.

I visited Paris with my friend Becky (a fellow graphics student). We literally walked for miles and miles. It was a great day, the weather was fab! Even abit of sunshine at times. There was also a lot of christmas markets which was great to get you into the festive spirit!

Xmas trips may become an annual event…
