The web site comes up with a couple really weird routes. I would simply walk over to Gard de l'Est and take Metro 7 in the direction of Mairie d'Ivry and get off at Porte d'Ivry. No changes; simple.

Be sure you follow Direction Mairie d'Ivry because Metro 7 has two branches. Do not follow direction Villejuif L. Aragon because it does not go to Porte d'Ivry.

If you don't want to walk, from Gare du Nord, take Metro 4 (direction Porte d'Orleans) to Chatelet les Halles. Then transfer to Metro 7 (direction Mairie d'Ivry) and that will take you to Porte d'Ivry.

If you're up for a fun adventure, take RER-B (direction Robinson) to stop Cite Universitaire. Then change to the cute tramway 3 (direction Pte. d'Ivry) and it ends right where you want to go. It's above ground so you get to see a little of Paris. It's about a half hour trip. I think I'd do that just to ride the tram.

Travel Tips for Paris

Take the Seine River Cruise...

by elaine2u

Take the Seine River Cruise and go up the famed Eiffel Tower (I'm sure you all know this by now) but if you put it off till the last hour, you might miss the chance. Cityrama tours is an excellent choice. Pick up a Paris-For Less Guide Book to get big discounts in tours and restaurants. We did a walking tour to burn off some calories and enjoyed every moment. We started our walk from the Hotel de Ville (which was very close to our hotel) then to the Notre Dame Cathedral to see the gargoyles and walked along the river Seine, crossed some bridges (stopping for a moment to gaze at the river and the Paris lights reflecting on it - - it is so magical and magnificent)...passed the Louvre museum and through the Garden de Toullieries and finally ended at the Champs Elysees. I think it lasted for close to 2 hours but because of all the lovely sights, and the comfortable walking shoes we wore, it wasn't difficult at all. Of course, don't forget to bring a little Paris street map. At the end of our walk, we had dinner around the Champs de Elysse area. After dinner, we decided to take the subway/metro back....that was enough exercise for the day. :)

'The Opera'

The Opera is a Music and Dance Academy and a place of enchantment and marvels, impregnated with the passions which have found expression. Famous composers and choreographers, instrumentalists, singers and dance stars, have given the best of themselves, reaching the sublime and sometimes reaching despair. Here the most spectacular intrigues of a romantic world were formed and dissolved, on the stage, in the stalls and boxes, and in the wings of this mythological palace.

Tickets for ballet performances at the Opera are hard to come by. However, if you are unable to obtain some, you must try to experience the gold and velvet ambiance of the building itself (the main entrance hall is open trom 11 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.).

Bridges crossing the Seine - Pont Alexandre III

by kris-t

Pont Alexandre III : with its exuberant Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses at either end, was built between 1896 and 1900. Pont Alexandre III is the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris...

Côtes de Duras festival

by kris-t

Côtes de Duras - name for red and white wines in South West France.

"Wine from the area around Duras have been famous since the time of the French monarch, Francis I. After the Edict of Nantes had been revoked and local French Protestants had moved to the Low Countries, wine exports to ports around the North Sea suddenly expanded.

Later this area became part of the Haut Pays Bordelais or upper Bordeaux wine country, and its exports were handled by merchants based in the Chartrons district of the city of Bordeaux, just like the wines produced closer to the city of Bordeaux itself. This was a golden age, which ended when use of the Bordeaux appellation was restricted to wines from the Gironde department in the 1930s."

We've seen the Côtes de Duras wine teasting - a great opportunity to discover a wine heritage - on the Siene bank in front of Notre Dame.

Book your Roland Garros tickets in advance.

by veerlie

To be sure of a seat, book your tickets in advance. You can order via internet on www.fft.fr/rolandgarros. This year you can reservate from the 13th of november untill the 15th of march. So it's allready a little late ... . You have several possibilities: a ticket for one of the big courts (Chatrier, Lenglen or Court nr. 1) where you can see the big players in action. Or you can choose for the outer courts, so you can walk around the whole day, smell the athmosphere and see some great matches. For the outer courts, you can buy your ticket the same day, the pay-desks are open from 9 o'clock. But if you want to be sure seeing your number one (in my case Federer!) play, you will need your seat in one of the big courts.
