Paris by plane

Paris is served by two airports giving direct flights for nearly all international cities, Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) or Orly International Airport (ORY). From the airports, you'll be able to use taxis or the regional train (RER) to reach the city center.

Paris by train

Gare du Nord or Gare de l'Est via SNCF are the closest train stations to the venue. Most major European cities, including the United Kingdom, can be reached through either of these stations.

Nearby Metros:

  • Réaumur - Sébastopol, Metro 3 & 4
  • Strasbourg - Saint-Denis, Metro 8 & 9
  • Arts et Métiers, Metro 11

Nearby hotels:

We highly recommend using Airbnb as an alternative to hotels. Oftentimes they can be less expensive and provide a richer experience if you're new to a city.
