 To reach the conference site from the airport:

  •     Bus : AirFrance buses
  •     RERB: Direct

Paris has two major airports – Roissy Charles de Gaulle and Orly which are both within one hour

of the school by public transport (train or bus) and less by taxi. As for the railways, there are several

big stations which generally are related to a particular region or direction where the trains head. All

of them are located close to the city centre and hence close to the school.

To get to the centre from the Charles de Gaulle airport by public transport, take the RER B line or

the “RoissyBus” (runs to the Opera in the centre of Paris). To get to the école, take the RER B and

get off at the station “Luxembourg”, exit “Jardin de Luxembourg” then walk down the boulevard St

Michel a couple of minutes.

From Orly there are also ways of getting to Paris. The first one is to take the “OrlyBus” which will

terminate at the metro/RER station Denfert-Rochereau and then take the local city transport (bus,

metro or RER) to your destination. The second way is to travel by the OrlyVal (light rail service

between the airport and the Antony station on the RER B) and then the RER B as described above.
