How do we get from Charles de Gaulle airport to St. Sebastien Froissart?

How about from the Beauvais airport to St. Sebastien Froissart?

Hello Daphnemaia

Is St. Sebastien Froissart in Paris?
If so, u can get the airport bus or trian from Charles De Gaulle airport, to the centre of Paris. Then maybe get the subway, or the suburb trains, to Sebastien F...
Sorry, I cant be of more help, but I dont know where Sebastien F.. is.

I dont know anything about transport form Beauvais airport.

hi,

from Beauvais, only one solution : take the Ryan Air bus to paris (1h), then taxi (less than 15 euros) or train to this Sebastien Froissart (line 1 then 8 - 30 min)...

from CDG airport, the cheapest way to get there is the train and the subway (RER B train to Gare du Nord - then subway line 5 - 50 minutes station to station - more or less 10 euros). It is a little bit messy sometimes to go to the RER station when you are tired. It depends on where your plane arrive at the airport. The easiest way is to take a cab for 30 to 40 euros to get you directly at Sebastien Froissart (20 to 40 minutes, depending on the traffic jam)

cheers
philippe

They are not so complicated, when u get used to them, Daphnemaia.
Get a map, for the metro lines. The metro is extensive, in Paris, so is a good way, to get around Paris. There is a different train network, servicing the suburbs. Maybe the maps are available on the the Internet, so u can study them, before u get to Paris.
I think the most difficult thing, about using the metro in Paris, is trying to buy the tickets, from the ticket machines, if u dont speak French. I went on the metro a couple of times, without buying a ticket, because there was nobody around, to help me, with the machine.
