We woud love to visit St. Denis from Paris since it's on the Metro. How long does it take to get there from Paris?

It's been a long time since I took in St Denis, but it only took about 20 minutes max to get there as I recall. Whatever, it was great.I have been telling people for years to go and see it and I don't quite understand why it isn't mentioned more in guide books. I'm really into history and had done a lot of reading about French history before the trip, so it really meant a lot. The basilica was free, but to tour the crypt you had to pay. We also rented an audioguide that was very good. I don't know if it's still there, but there was a Paul bakery stand at the St Denis metro station that sold great pastries. Enjoy!

You've got a great memory, John. According to RATP is takes 22 minutes to get from Invalies to St. Denis. This definitely makes the list to go visit.
Thanks for the help. The RATP site is really handy.
