Bus No. 12 (No. 21 on weekends and evenings) goes directly from the airport to Place Luxembourg situated less than 5 minutes walking distance from our office. Trains from the airport going to Gare Centrale takes about 20 minutes and from there either walk 15 minutes to the office (see map) or take bus No. 38 to stop Trône.
