FIAP Jean-Monnet

April 14-17














































Arriving by Plane

Those who will arrive by plane will land at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle Airport which is north of Paris. The airport is connected to Paris by a good RER service (go to "Gare SNCF"), the same line that serves Denfert-Rochereau! From Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle to Denfert-Rochereau it is approx. 45 minutes. The trip costs € 8.20 (as of 2009).
Bus shuttles are also available but they will not serve Denfert-Rochereau.

Arriving by Train

The Eurostar (from London) and Thalys (from Amsterdam, Brussels or Cologne) trains arrive at Gare du Nord ("Paris-Nord"). Here too you are on Line B, and it is a direct route to Denfert-Rochereau (approx. 15 minutes).
From South Germany, if you come by train, you may eventually arrive at Gare de l'Est ("Paris-Est") if you come via Strasbourg and Nancy with the TGV Est. You too are lucky: Gare de l'Est is on the Métro Line 4 which goes to the south and calls at Denfert-Rochereau too (Direction Porte d'Orléans). It's a little longer, but it costs 1 Métro ticket, € 1.60 (buy a "carnet" of 10, for € 11.60 - you save 20 percent).
From Spain you'll arrive at Gare Montparnasse where the Talgo and TGV trains arrive. Go to the underground station and take Line 6 (Direction Nation) to Saint-Jacques, a few minutes walk from the rue Cabanis. (Watch the "Plan du quartier" in the Métro station when leaving.)
From Gare de Lyon (for those arriving from Italy and Switzerland) it is a little more complicated although not far from Denfert-Rochereau.
Our suggestion is to take Line 1 to the East (Direction Château de Vincennes) then to change at Nation and catch Line 6 to Glacière but the other direction (Direction Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile). Glacière is just near the rue Cabanis. It's a five minutes walk. (Watch the "Plan du quartier" in the Métro station when leaving.)
Another solution would be to take the RER Line A to the West, change at Châtelet, then RER Line B to the South to Denfert-Rochereau. If you are lucky the Line B train will wait for you on the opposite platform. However, Châtelet is a giant station with trains going in all directions and it is sometimes uneasy to understand which direction the trains go!


Taxis in Paris are not expensive. (But a taxi drive from Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle Airport to the FIAP Jean-Monnet Centre would cost you more than €50!).
