You can start gathering information before leaving home by contacting the French Government Tourist Office. There are three offices in the United States, including 444 Madison Avenue, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10022; 875 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 3214, Chicago, IL 60611; and 9454 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 715, Beverly Hills, CA 90212. In the United Kingdom, the office is at 178 Piccadilly, London W1J 9AL; in Canada it’s at 1981 av. McGill College, Suite 490, Montreal, H3A 2W9; and in Australia it’s at 25 Bligh Street, Sydney, NSW 2000. The website of the French Government Tourist Office is also worth checking out. Available in several different languages, visitors can find information on all the different cities in France, including things to do, special interests, and practical information. Another good website is France On-Call, with information specific to the different regions, including accommodations, transportation, activities, and practical information.

And once you’re in Roissy-en-France, stop by the local Office of Tourism in front of the Town Hall. Visitors can stop by any day except Sunday for information on restaurants, entertainment, and useful addresses, as well as maps, directions, and help with transportation.
