PARIS TRANSPORTATION
Paris ComboPass®: Available in versions from two
to six days, it includes unlimited use of all public
transport, access to more than 60 attractions in Paris,
and more! You won’t find Paris ComboPass® in Paris.
Conciergerie.com is the only place you can buy these
exclusive pass packages. The price for a Premium
2-day pass is 59,000 Euro or $78.24, a Premium 3-day
pass is 75,000 Euro or $99.46, a Premium 4-day pass
is 92,000 Euro or $122.00, a Premium 5-day pass
is 99,000 Euro or $131.29. and a Premium 6-day
pass is 129,000 Euro or $171.07. The US prices are
approximate.
Buses: Traveling above ground is not only more
entertaining than the Metro but a good way to
familiarize yourself with the city. Metro tickets can
be used on the buses and can be bought on the bus as
well as in the metro stations. On the bus a machine
stamps your ticket but hold onto your ticket to
present when asked. To transfer you need another
ticket. Le Paris Viste and Carte Orange tickets need to
be shown to the driver. There are bus maps available
at the metro stations and posted in the bus shelters.
Most buses run from 6:30 AM to 8:30 PM but there
are a few buses which run until 12:30 AM.
The Metro: The Paris metro is one of the oldest and
one of the best train systems in the world. There are
around 300 stations
connected by nearly
300 kilometers of
track. You can get
within a couple blocks
of anywhere you want
to go. The metro runs
from 5:00 AM to
12:30 AM and for the
price of a ticket you
can ride around all day
long if you like. (as long as you don’t leave the system).
Tickets can be bought at the ticket booth in the station by
ten or by 1-day, 2-day, 3-day, 5-day.
Taxis: There are almost 15,000 taxis in Paris and finding
one is usually not a problem. There are taxi stands all over
the city and you can also hail them in the street if the taxi
light is bright. If it is dim that means it is occupied. Taxis
are relatively inexpensive and the easiest way to get home
after a day or night of walking around. You can usually
have your hotel concierge call a taxi if you don’t want to
try your luck on the streets.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The Euro: The euro, the single European currency,
became the official
currency of France and
11 other participating
countries on January 1,
1999. The euro didn’t go
into general circulation
until January 1, 2002. The
old currency, the French
franc, disappeared into
history on March 1, 2002,
replaced by the euro,
which is officially abbreviated “EUR” or €. Exchange
rates of participating countries are locked into a common
currency fluctuating against the dollar, and the difference
could affect the relative costs of your trip. For up-to-theminute currency conversions, go to www.xe.com/ucc.
Banks: Most banks in Paris are open Monday to Friday
from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, and a few are open Saturday;
ask at your hotel for the location of the one nearest you.
Most post offices will convert currency, and exchanges
are also available at Paris airports and train stations
and along most of the major boulevards. They charge a
small commission. ATMs -- The easiest and best way to
get cash away from home is from an ATM, sometimes
referred to as a “cash machine,” or a “cashpoint.” Look
at the back of your bank card to see which network
you’re on, then call or check online for ATM locations
at your destination. Be sure you know your personal
identification number (PIN) and daily withdrawal limit
before you depart. ATMs are widely available in France,
certainly in all cities and bigger towns, and even at a bank
or two in smaller places. Note: users with alphabetical
rather than numerical PINS may be thrown off by the
lack of letters on French cash machines. If your PIN
number is longer than four digits, check with your bank
to see if you can use the first four digits or will have to
get a new number for use in France, and remember that
many banks impose a fee every time you use a card at
another bank’s ATM.
Credit Cards: Credit cards are another safe way to
carry money, but their use has become more difficult,
especially in France. They also provide a convenient
record of all your expenses, and they generally offer
relatively good exchange rates. You can usually withdraw
cash advances from your credit cards at banks or ATMs,
provided you know your PIN. Keep in mind that you’ll
pay interest from the moment of your withdrawal, even if
you pay your monthly bills on time. Also, note that many
banks now assess a 1% to 3% “transaction fee” on all
charges you incur abroad. There is almost no difference
in the acceptance of a debit or a standard credit card.
6
Welcome to
Paris
Telephone Calls: Cell Phones: In France (and
all of Europe), you’ll need a cell phone that is GSM
SIM-unlocked and that works on 900-1800 GSM
frequencies. These will work with any prepaid SIM card
in Europe, which usually accept free incoming calls.
Phone Calls: French phone numbers are composed of
ten digits. Parisian landline numbers start with 01 and
cell phones with 06. For example, the number of the
Center in Paris is 01-53-94-78-80.
Calling France from the U.S.: Dial 011 (international
dialing code), then 33 (the country code for France)
and the French phone number without the first “0.”
Example: 011-33-1-53-94-78-80
Calling France within France: Dial the 10-digit
telephone number.
Example: 01-53-94-78-80
Calling the U.S. or Canada from France: Dial 001
followed by the area code and seven-digit phone
number.
Example: 001-773-702-1234
Paris Wi-Fi Spots: There are now over 260
public locations that provide 24-7 high-speed
wireless Internet access. For terminal locations by
arrondissement, visit Localisation des bornes Wi-Fi.
Time Difference: Paris is 6 hours ahead of
New York time. So, keep this time difference in mind
when you plan to call.

relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It is also cheaper
than many clubs too. The Baiser Sale jazz club is
located at 58 Rue des Lombards.

big band jazz. On some nights the club takes in salsa, blues
and rock. The Le Petit Journal Montparmasse is located at
13 Rue du Commandant-Mouchotte.
Le Petit Journal St-Michel

PARIS ATTRACTIONS
Eiffel Tower
1
The Eiffel Tower in Paris is one of the the tallest
structures in the world. It is of course considered to
be one of the most romantic places on Earth. The
original designer, also named Eiffel, was no stranger
to the United States as he also designed the wroughtiron pylon inside the Statue of Liberty. Eiffel was
the leading European authority on the aerodynamics
of high frames and wrote a famous book entitled
“The Resistance of the Air” in 1913. The curve of
the base pylons in the Eiffel Tower were calculated
exactly so as to withstand the bending and shearing
forces of the wind. These forces were progressively
transformed into forces of compression so that the
structure of the tower could withstand them more
effectively. Eiffel’s genius helped to conquer even in
the strongest winds and it is commonly known that
the Eiffel Tower never sways more than 4-1/2 inches.
Today, the “Tour Eiffel”, as it is known to Parisians,
is internationally recognized as one of the great
romantic symbols of Paris itself. The Eiffel Tower is
located at Champs-de-Mars, 7e, Paris. For tours call
33 1 44 11 23 23.
Louvre Museum
2
The Louvre is one of the largest museums in the
world, with over 35,000 pieces of art housed in a
gigantic, 60,000 square foot building. Located along
the banks of the Seine, the glass pyramid outside
the Louvre is a memorable landmark, and an often
photographed view of the museum. Descend below
to enjoy the large collection of works, including
Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. The history of the
Louvre museum starts with Philippe-Auguste, as he
built the Louvre in the late 12th century as a fortress
on the edge of the city to protect Paris from Anglo-
8
Welcome to
Paris
Norman invaders. The Louvre was retrofitted into
a residence for Louis XIV in the 16th century, and
remained a palace for several centuries, but also
began to showcase the works that France had been
collecting. The history of the Louvre museum took
a dramatic turn in the late 18th century when the art
collection took over entirely, and thus the modern
Louvre was born. Different rulers build different
sections as part of the palace expansion. King Henri
IV built the Grande Galerie, which is over a quarter
of a mile long, and at the time was the longest
building in the world. Louis XIII completed the
Denon Wing during his rein. Even Napoleon had a
hand in the history of the Louvre museum, adding a
wing in the 1850s. The museum is located at 75058
Paris Cedex 01, Paris - 33 1 40 20 51 77.
Centre Georges-Pompidou
The Centre Georges Pompidou is a very notable
building that is located in the Beaubourg area of
Paris. It stands near Les
Halles and the Marais
and it houses a vast
public library and a
modern art museum.
Because of its location,
the centre is often
referred to simply as
“Beaubourg” by the
locals. Some of the art
movements represented
in the museum include
Fauvism, Cubism,
Surrealism and Abstract
Expressionism. The
museum has a total of
50,000 works of art
which include various
paintings, sculpture,
drawings and photographs. There are close to
two thousand items on public display there. The
building structure of the Centre Pompidou is
very distinctive and has been described by critics
as “an oil refinery in the centre of the city”. The
construction of the building is very transparent as
the steel beams that make up the Pompidou Centre’s
framework are on the outside. The intention of
the architects was to place all the service elements
outside the building’s framework and thereby turn
the building “inside out”. The Centre GeorgesPompidou is located at Place Georges Pompidou,
Paris - 33 1 44 78 12 33.

Château de Versailles
Cathédrale Notre-Dame
The Palace at Versailles is one of the world’s greatest
buildings. Begun in 1624 as a modest hunting lodge by
King Louis XII, the present grand palace took shape
under Louis XIV between 1661-1689. Versailles has five
parts: the Palace,
the Trinanons,
Le Hameau, the
gardens, and the
fountains. The
Palace offers
grandly furnished
public rooms
glorifying the
Sun King and
the art galleries.
If you can’t see
them all, don’t
miss the King’s
Apartments and
the Hall of Mirrors. The two Trianon chateaux have more
grand rooms, but not as grand as the Palace. The next is
Le Hameau. This is where Queen Marie Antoinette got
it into her head that peasant farming was a noble pastime,
and had a little farm community built for her . Next is the
gardens, they are largely a classical representation of a forest.
It is almost two miles from the Palace to the end of the
gardens. The fountains that are the highlight of any visit to
Paris, should not be missed. A river was diverted to provide
water for them, seriously affecting the water supply of Paris.
Because of the strain the fountains put on Paris’ water
supply, they are displayed only on six summer afternoons
a year, roughly every other Sunday, May-September. The
Château de Versailles is located at Motorway A13,
Paris - 33 1 30 83 78 00.
Visitors must show a respectful attitude, through both
their behavior and their clothing, to this great Christian
site where men and women have come to pray and to
confide in God for over eight centuries. On a small
island in the River Seine, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame
is the very center of France. Inside the church, you can
either walk and look for free, or you can hire an audio
guide. There are the Gothic stained glass windows the
“roses” but you will especially like the segments of the
Christ story that you can see “illustrated” in beautiful
friezes along the center of the church so that priests
could explain the basic stories in the Bible to those who
could not read it. You can also hunt out the statue of
Joan of Arc. Cathédrale Notre-Dame is located at 6 Place
du Parvis-de-Notre-Dame, Paris - 33 1 42 34 56 10.
Musee d’Orsay
Arc de Triomphe
3
The Musee d’Orsay is housed in a former train station
which had to close in 1937 as the platforms were too
short for newer trains. It remained empty and was saved
from demolition threats after the outcries over Les Halles
destruction. In 1986 this museum opened dedicated to
artwork from between 1848 and 1914. The building itself
is quite beautiful and is a perfect backdrop for the stunning
artwork inside. What was previously the platforms area is
an incredible light and airy space that soars upwards. The
gallery is housed over three floors. Several special exhibits
will be on display from April 7 – July 19, 2009, including
“See Italy and Die,” “Italian Models,” and “The Italy of
the Architects, from layout to invention.” The museum
is known worldwide for its collections of impressionist
paintings among which include works by French artist
Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Vincent Van Gogh. The Musée
d’Orsay, like the Musée Hébert, is a national museum
under the authority of the Ministry of Culture. The Musee
d’Orsay is located at 1 Rue de la Legion-d’Honneur,
Paris - 33 1 40 49 48 14.

Basilique du Sacré-Coeur

5
The Basilique Sacré-Cœur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart)
is a Roman Catholic church and familiar landmark
in Paris, located on the highest point of the city in
Montmartre. The triple-arched portico is surmounted
by two bronze equestrian statues of France’s national
saints, Joan of Arc and King Saint Louis IX. The SacréCoeur Basilica is built of Château-Landon (Seine-etMarne) stone, a frost-resistant travertine that constantly
weathers out its calcite, so that it bleaches with age
to a chalky whiteness. Golden mosaics glow in the
dim, echoing interior of the Sacré-Coeur. The mosaic
of Christ in Majesty (1922) in the apse is one of the
world’s largest, and incorporates Joan of Arc as well as
the Virgin Mary. Basilique du Sacré-Coeur is located at
Place St-Pierre 18e, Paris - 33 1 42 51 17 02.
6
The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous
monuments in Paris. The arch honors those who fought
for France, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars,
and today also includes the
tomb of unknown soldier
from World War I. The Arc
is the linchpin of the historic
axis (L’Axe historique) a
sequence of monuments
and grand thoroughfares
on a route which goes from
the courtyard of the Louvre
Palace to the outskirts of
Paris. From the top there
is an excellent view of all
of Paris, the twelve major
avenues leading to the Arc and of the exceptionally
busy roundabout in which the Arc lies. The Arc de
Triomphe is located at Place Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile,
16e, Paris - 33 1 55 37 73 78.

Marie de Medicis in 1627 and the designer was
Salomon de Brosse. It was originally intended as a
Florentine palace to suit the taste of Marie de Medicis.
In addition to the impressive Florentine design,
there are
decorations and
embellishments
such as Rubens
paintings which
can be found on
the walls of the
large art gallery.
The library also
has masterpieces
from Eugene
Delacroix. The
practical usage of the palace has changed many times.
The Jardin du Luxembourg was a prison during the
Revolution but it is now a building that is used to
house the Senate. The gardens of Luxembourg are a
majestic sight for any passerby and they completely
surround the palace itself. This extremely large park
has grand sprawling lawns and an abundance of
colorful flowers to please the senses. The sight always
amazes the visitors who walk comfortably along the
winding paths through the park. The exquisite beauty
of the various flowers and the shadows under the cool
trees is very pleasurable. Jardin du Luxembourg is a
wonderful place to visit and is located at 6 Rue de
Vaugirard, Paris - 33 1 42 34 25 95.
Disneyland Park
Disneyland Park is like the Magic Kingdom in
Orlando, only a lot smaller. You enter along Main
Street USA - 1930’s America - really pretty, with
Cinderella’s Castle in the background. You can ride a
vintage car or a horse-drawn tram along the street and
this is where the daily parade takes place. The Princess
Parade is magical with the usual Disney characters,
dancers, floats and more. The park is divided into 4
lands; Discoveryland, Fantasyland, Adventureland and
Frontierland. Fantasyland is themed around Disney
fairy tales and fables. Adventureland is wonderfully
themed with lots of caves, bridges, tunnels and
waterfalls to explore. Pirates of the Caribbean is the
main ride - an indoor boat trip through pirate scenes.
Frontierland takes you back to the Wild West. Here
you will find Big Thunder. Discoveryland is Disney’s
futuristic area. Here you will enjoy Buzz Lightyear

Picasso Museum
The Picasso museum is housed in one of the nicest
mansions of the Marais district in Paris, built in the
XVIIth century for Pierre Aubert Lord of Fontenay. The
Hotel Salé, which owes its name to the profession of its
first owner (a salt tax collector), changed hands very
often, becoming a national literary repository harbouring
the convent libraries seized during the Revolution, an
educational establishment where Balzac completed his
secondary schooling, the Ecole Centrale des Arts et
Manufactures, an exhibition room for the bronze sculptor
Henri Vian. It was made a listed building in 1968, and
opened his doors as The Picasso Museum in 1985.
The Picasso Museum is located at 5 Rue de Thorigny,
Paris - 33 1 42 71 88 18.
Luxembourg Gardens
8
The Luxembourg Gardens, Paris’s best known park after
the Tuileries. They were laid out in the 17th century
when the Palais du Luxembourg was built, and were
given their present form in the 19th century. The
large octagonal pond with a fountain is flanked by two
terraces. This part of the park is laid out in the French
classical style, symmetrically, with straight lines, while
the outer parts with their winding paths and quiet
corners between
irregularly grouped
clumps of trees are
in the less formal
English style. Along the
terraces and paths are
statues of prominent
men and women from
the worlds of art and
politics. A popular
meeting-point is the
picturesque Fontaine
de Médicis, hidden
under trees opposite the east front of the palace. The
fountain basin, with a Renaissance monument on the
pediment of which are the river gods of the Rhône
and the Seine, dates from around 1620. The Palais du
Luxembourg is located at 19 Rue de Vaugirard, F-75006
Paris - 33 1 44 54 19 49.

La Conciergerie
9
Situated in a part of the Palais de Justice (Law
courts), the Conciergerie became Paris’ first
prison in 1391. Behind its medieval facade are
reconstructions of cells, the 14th century Salle des
Gardes (Guardroom), the Salle des Gens d’Armes
(Arms room), which is a fine example of Gothic
architecture, the
Cour des Femmes,
where the prisoners
took their daily walk,
and the Bonbec
Tower in which they
were interrogated.
During the French
Revolution, almost
3,000 people were
locked up in these
dungeons; one of them is a reconstruction of the
cell in which Queen Marie-Antoinette awaited her
fate at the guillotine. Several other famous prisoners
were entertained here, including Charlotte Corday
(politician Jean-Paul Marat’s assassin in 1793),
chemist Antoine de Lavoisier and poet Andre
Chenier. The Conciergerie is located at 1 Quai de
l’Horloge, Paris - 33 1 53 73 78 50.
you will find the French sculptor’s The Gates of Hell,
Balzac and The Thinker; inside, The Kiss and a room
featuring the works of Rodin’s pupil and lover, Camille
Claudel. Great photograph opportunities, especially in
the rose gardens, with the golden dome of Les Invalides
as a back-drop. The Musee Roding museum is located at
77 Rue Varenne, Paris - 33 1 44 18 61 10.
La Sainte Chapelle
11
Located in the center of the city within the Palais
de Justice complex on the Île de la Cite, La Sainte
Chapelle (Holy Chapel) is a small Gothic chapel
constructed in the Rayonnant style. Built by King
Louis IX from 1238-1244, the chapel housed holy
relics from the Passion believed to be Jesus’ Crown
of Thorns and a piece of the True Cross. These items
were purchased from the Byzantine emperor Baldwin
II in 1239 for a huge sum of 135,000 livres (the church
cost 40,000 livres to build) due to the King’s desire to
elevate France as the leader of Western Christianity.
La Sainte Chapelle provides visitors with a spectacular
visual experience, since the entire upper tier of the
chapel is surrounded by enormous stained glass
windows. La Sainte Chapelle is located at 4 Bd. du
Palais, 1er, Paris - 33 1 42 77 65 65.
Parc Zoologique de Paris
Place Vendôme
There’s a modest zoo in the Jardin des Plantes,
but without a doubt, the best zoo is here on the
southeastern outskirts of Paris, quickly reachable by
Métro. Many of this modern zoo’s animals, which
seem happy and are playful, live in settings similar to
their natural habitats, hemmed in by rock barriers,
not bars or cages. You’ll never see an animal in a cage
too small for it. The lion has an entire veldt to himself,
and you can lock eyes comfortably across a deep
moat. On a cement mountain similar to Disneyland’s
Matterhorn, exotic breeds of mountain goats and
sheep leap from ledge to ledge or pose gracefully for
hours while watching the penguins in their pools at
the mountain’s foot. Keep well back from the bear
pools, or you might get wet. The Parc Zoologique
is located at Bois de Vincennes, 53 Avenue de StMaurice, 12e Paris - 33 1 44 75 20 00.
Follow the Rues de Castiglione and de la Paix to one
of the most famous squares in Paris. Intricately linked
with the history of France, since its creation in 1685,
this architectural jewel was commissioned by King
Louis XIV and designed by Jules-Hardouin Mansart.
The arcades of the exquisitely fronted mansions
that surround the square
form a sort of intimate
salon in the heart of the
capital. Not surprisingly,
it was adopted by Paris’
aristocracy. Prestigious
banks and the emblems
of French elegance
still cluster around
the Austerlitz column
that Napoleon erected.
Labels of luxury such as
Chaumet, Boucheron,
Van Cleef & Arpels,
Cartier, Guerlain, Chanel
rule the roost. While
you’re here, stop at the
Ritz hotel or the Palais de l’Elysee (the President’s
residence). Yes, this really is the home of luxury,
elegance and power. The Place Vendôme is located at
4 Place Vendôme, Paris - 33 1 42 61 13 89.
