  • From Gare du Nord: take the city train RER B direction "St. Remy de Chevreuse / Robinson" and get out at "Saint-Michel Notre-Dame". From here take RER C and get out at "Bibliothèque François Mitterrand". Use exit "Sud" ("Grands Moulins").

Arriving by plane

 

Paris has two main airports:

  • From Charles de Gaulle: at the airport follow the signs for "RER B / Paris par train". Buy a ticket to Paris (10 Euros) and take any RER B train going downtown and get out at "Saint-Michel Notre-Dame" (takes about 45 minutes; do not worry if the train skips some stations). From here take RER C and get out at "Bibliothèque François Mitterrand". Use exit "Sud" ("Grands Moulins"). You can also take a taxi, which is 55 Euros (fixed price).
  • From Orly (1): take the tram T7 direction Villejuif Louis Aragon for 4 stops until La Fraternelle. Here change to the RER C line. Take the RER C train going downtown and get out at "Bibliothèque François Mitterrand" (ticket is 4,20 Euros). Use exit "Sud" ("Grands Moulins").
  • From Orly (2): take the Orlyval airport train to "Antony" (buy a ticket to Paris for 12,05 Euros). From here, take the RER B train going downtown and get out at "Saint-Michel Notre-Dame". From here take RER C and get out at "Bibliothèque François Mitterrand". Use exit "Sud" ("Grands Moulins").
  • From Orly (3): take a taxi. That is 30 Euros (fixed price).

Arriving by car

 

It is a bad idea to try to reach the François Arago Centre by car. There is practically no parking space in the area. If you want to try anyway, here is the Google map link.

When coming from the peripherique (beltway / tangentiale / highway circle / Ringautobahn) take exit "Quai d'Ivry".
