How to get to the city
Plane : 2 major airports : Charles de Gaulle and Orly.
Budget companies land in Beauvais, which is a very remote airport. Takes a long time to get into the center of the city
Gare du Nord : trains from the North ( Belgium, Netherlands)
And Eurostar from London
Gare de l'Est : trains from Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Poland etc
Gare de Lyon : trains from Italy
Gare Montparnasse : trains from Spain / Portugal
Coach : Eurolines terminal in the East of Paris
How to get to the venue
Subway lines 6 and 14 (14 is fully automatic : trains every 3 minutes - more at the rush hours)
Stade de France ( located in Saint Denis):
Submay line 13 and RER (express train) line D
the subway station is closer to the stadium than the RER, but the way from the RER is easier, and the RER goes faster than the subway.
Some girls bar - 43 Rue de Lappe - 75011 Paris
Small but nice and not too expensive Stones bar : stones music, stones artwork
Located very close to the " Place de la Bastille " Lot of subway line stopping at Bastille.
If you look for french food, you have " les brasseries " ( at least 30-40 EUR ) like the very well known " La Coupole" close to the Gare Montparnasse.
Cheap french food is at " Chartier ", but it's crowded if you're not there early. No reservations possible.
Of course, the traditional tourist traps : " Hard Rock Café " ( subway station " Grands Boulevards "), " Planet Hollywood " (on the Champs Elysées, equal distance from " George V " and " Franklin D Roosevelt " subway stations)
