FUDCon Paris - useful links
The FUDCon Paris wiki page already contains quite a number of information but I thought it might be nice to repeat them once again here.
So here is a list of useful links/information
- FUDCon Paris wiki page
- IBIS Hotel google map (with the marker)
- Organize your subway travel on the RATP website (the RATP being the company that runs the subway train, the bus and the trams in Paris).
Last minute info
If you are arriving late (after 23:00) from Charle De Gaule (CDG) airport, there are work on the train line, so you might have to take a bus instead of the train to the center.
This is also valid, if you have to take a train late (after 23:00) on Monday evening to CDG airport.
In both case, the connection between the normal trains and the bus substituting is done at the station Aulnay-sous-Bois.
The official documentation says:
Due to work, there will be NO trains between Aulnay-sous-Bois and Charles De Gaulle Airport on Monday to Friday from 23:05 to the last train, until november 2012. Trains will be replaced by a direct bus service. To CDG Airport : departs from Aulnay-sous-Bois station (23:20 > 00:45). To Paris : departs from Roissypôle - CDG Airport bus station (23h05 > 23:55). Allow an additional 15 to 20 minutes for the journey.
Couple more of information
- The closest subway station from the hotel is Corentin Cariou, subway line 7
- The FUDCon on Saturday is closest to the George V station, line 1
- The FUDCon on Sunday and Monday is closest to the Porte de la Villette station, line 7 (but if you are at the IBIS hotel, you might as well walk to there)
- The Effeil tower can be accessed from the stations:
- Bir-Hakeim, line 6
- Trocadéro, line 6 and 9
- The Louvre museum is at the station Tuileries, line 1
- Notre-Dame can be accessed from the stations:
- Cité, line 4
- Saint-Michel, line 4
- The Sacré-Coeur (one of the nicest view of Paris) can be accessed from the stations:
- Anvers, line 2
- Abbesses, line 12
- The Champs-Élysées can be accessed from the stations:
- Charles de Gaulle - Étoile, line 1, 2 and 6
- George V, line 1
- Franklin D. Roosevelt, line 1 and 9
- Champs-Élysées - Clemenceau, line 1 and 13
- Is there a Android app for the transport?
- The RATP provides an Android app on the market but basically only the main maps are accessible offline, no trip planner, no maps of the surrounding of a stations, no map of a subway/bus line and no traffic info (that's not so surprising though)
- I found another app Metro 01 (Paris) which seems to do trip planner offline.
- Where can I get a map of the transportation network?
- I gave a link to a PDF of this map but in case you cannot/forgot to print it, be aware that every information desk at every station can provide you with a paper version.
I hope this can help you to visit and enjoy your time before and after the FUDCon (not during hé ;-)).
