Jules Verne – Paris

In a recent post we mentioned that Rimbaud’s poem “Le Bateaux Ivre” was inspired by Jules Verne’s novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”. On our recent trip to France we came across some other Jules Verne connections.

The platform of the Arts et Metiers Metro station on Line 11 has been transformed to look like the Nautilus submarine from “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”.
