Public Transporation for
First IAA Symposium on Searching for Life Signatures
(Paris, France, 22-26 September 2008)

The following transportation recommendations, which will allow attendees to reach the Conference Hotel from the Charles De Gaulle airport, are provided by Symposium chairman Claudio Maccone:

The map below shows the two UNESCO buildings in central Paris (you see that the Metro Stations "Cambronne" and "Segur" are marked too, by an "M" in a blue circle).

Well, our UNESCO is the main one, that is the northern one, located at No. 7, Place de Fontenoy.

Our Hotel, the IBIS Paris Tour Eiffel Cambronne Hotel, is actually located very close to the Cambronne Metro station, just at the right beginning going south along Rue Cambronne.

From the Charles De Gaulle (CDG) airport, please do not take a taxi (it would take a lot, more than hour, due to traffic jams, and cost you an awful lot!). My advice is that everybody should take the train (called RER, for Reseau Extraurbain Rapide) at the CDG Airport. This RER Station is well shown in the Airport Maps, and your RER line is B3.

By this B3 RER line you get to Central Paris, at the Station called LES HALLES, or CHATELET-LES HALLES. There you exit from the RER and pick up the No. 4 line of the Metro, direction "Porte d'Orleans" (i.e. towards south). You finally TRANSFER from the No. 4 to the No. 6 Metro line at the DENFERT-ROCHEREAU Station, and board the No. 6 train (Direction: Charles-de-Gaulle - ETOILE). Finally you get off at the Cambronne Metro Station and just WALK to the IBIS hotel.

It's easier than it may appear from this description, believe me! But keep in mind that, at best, it will take you one hour to get from CDG Airport to Cambronne - and much longer by taxi! Don't do it!!!
