Campo Formio (French pronunciation: ​[kɑ̃po fɔʁmjo]) is a station of the Paris Métro, serving line 5 located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.

History[edit]

The station is open June 6, 1906. The name refers to Rue de Campo Formio, named for the Treaty of Campo Formio in 1797 between France and Austria. France obtained Belgium, part of the left bank of the Rhine, the Ionian Islands, and the recognition of the Cisalpine Republic. German bombing in World War I damaged this station in 1918.

During the summer of 2007, the station was the provisional terminus of Line 5 following the closure of the platforms at the Place d'Italie station and the construction of the boucle d'Italie.

In 2018, 1,369,978 travelers entered this station which places it at 285th position of the metro stations for its attendance.[1]
