Porte Maillot was the first metro line to reach Porte de Vincennes in 30 minutes. It opened in 1900 and was an instant success. On that day, although the figure may seem insignificant now, more than 30,000 tickets were sold. The starting point for unmissable attractions for young and old alike! Living in Porte Maillot enables easy access to many tourist attractions. You can walk up the Champs-Élysées, which is not far away, visit the Arc de Triomphe, or even go in search of the Grande Arche that dominates the Esplanade de la Défense.
