Metro Line 5

Place d'Italie

Bobigny – Pablo Picasso

Line 5 connects Bobigny - Pablo Picasso station to Place d'Italie station. It serves, among others, the Nord, Est, and Austerlitz stations. It was opened in 1906 with the section from Gare d'Austerlitz to Place d'Italie, and its last extension was in 1985 to Bobigny - Pablo Picasso, remaining unchanged since then. Partly elevated, line 5 has a unique feature at one of its stations: Austerlitz station is located on a viaduct overlooking the hall of the same-named train station. This station provides interchange with line 10, which is located underground beneath the train station.

The route is punctuated by 22 stations, some of which are located at historical sites such as République and Bastille. When getting off at Porte de Pantin station, you can stroll through the alleys of Parc de Villette.

Line 5 has 11 connections with other metro lines, as well as connections to RER B, C, D, and E, Transilien H, K, and P lines, Orly and Charles de Gaulle airports, and tram lines T1 and T3b.
