Grands Boulevards is a station on lines 8 and 9 of the Paris Métro. The section of lines 8 and 9 from just east of Richelieu - Drouot to west of République was built under the Grand Boulevards, which replaced the Louis XIII wall and is in soft ground, which was once the course of the Seine. The lines are built on two levels, with line 8 on the higher level and line 9 in the lower level. The platforms are at the sides and the box containing the lines and supporting the road above is strengthened by a central wall between the tracks. There is no interconnection between the lines at Grands Boulevards, with each level having different accesses to the street.The station was opened on 5 May 1931 with the extension of line 8 from Richelieu - Drouot to Porte de Charenton. The line 9 platforms were opened on 10 December 1933 with the extension of the line from Richelieu - Drouot to Porte de Montreuil. Until 1998 the station was called Rue Montmartre. It was renamed to reflect the programme of the former Mayor of Paris, Jean Tiberi, to upgrade the main Boulevards of Paris and because the old name suggested that the station was in the Montmartre district, misleading tourists.

  • I took the bus for once to get from the Montparnasse station to the hotel on Boulevard Montmartre, instead of the metro. That's what I'll do from now on. Of course we don't have a bus every 2 minutes, but we're safe, there aren't those smells of the metro and we can admire Paris.These big boulevards with all these Hausmann buildings are beautiful, with these shops, these famous places, we "breathe" Paris and its population

  • I was with my wife at this restaurant on September 10th, 2019. We were walking down the street and this restaurant draws attention to the beauty and the kind of menu. Although we were not greeted very amicably by the waiter who found us at the door we decided to stay. We were sitting on the inside when my wife and I saw a RAT walking through the hall. First we were a little unknowing what to do because no waiter would appear to report the fact. After a long wait without knowing if the RAT would come until we decided to leave. When I found the waiter at the exit I reported the happening but to my surprise the same received the news with irony saying being the Michey Mouse. Shameful, disgusting, irresponsible.... Totally disadvise this restaurant. It's unsanitary and it should be closed...
