How to get to Rouen
The French airports offer a « Navette » service from the airports to the centre of Paris at Opéra. The cost is 13.70 € for the navette from Roissy to Opéra and 9.30€ from Orly to Denfert Rochereau and the bus goes every 15/20 minutes.
From Orly there is also a bus that goes every 15 minutes to Montparnasse station or to the Champs Elysées. From there it is easy to take the metro. A metro ticket is 1.90 € and a book of 10 tickets is 16,90€.
Gare St Lazare is one metro stop from Opéra on the line « Direction Pont de Lavallois, Line 3 » but a taxi is quick and inexpensive if you have a lot of luggage. (It is about 15 minutes walk from Opéra to St Lazare). A metro ticket is 1.90€.
The Eurostar arrives at the Gare du Nord and we recommend a taxi between Gare du Nord and Gare St Lazare as the easiest and quickest journey.
Alternatively, we can arrange a transfer from your point of entry. Please ask us for a personal quotation.

At the airport:
When you come out of the Customs hall look for a driver carrying a signboard with our logo and your name on it.
In the unlikely event of you not being able to find your driver : Go to the airport information desk and ask the staff either in English to page the driver (or in French « Le chauffeur French in Normandy est prié de venir chercher Monsieur / Madame… ») (then say your name).
French in Normandy can organise by shared and private transfers from all Paris airports or Channel ports or your chosen point.
Transfer details should be sent to us at least seven days prior to the arrival of the student. For students booking an airport transfer we ask for the ﬂight number, arrival time and student’s mobile number. Unless accompanied by
an adult, ALL students under 18 must book and pay for transfers on arrival and departure. Missed transfers are non-refundable.
Nassira is our main driver and she or one of her colleagues will be waiting for you at the exit after you have collected your bags. She will have a sign with the school name: French in Normandy and your name on it.
