Visit Paris with Line 2 of Le Bus Direct

With Line 2 of the Le Bus Direct, travelling to and from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, visit the areas surrounding our stops on the capital’s Right Bank.

Trocadéro

From Place du Trocadéro, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, the opportunities for tours and walks are varied, to say the least!

Just a few meters from our bus stop, the Trocadéro esplanade, also known as “Parvis de Droits de l’Homme” (the esplanade of human rights), offers an unobstructed view of the Eiffel Tower. You can also enjoy the view a little further down, from the magnificent Jardins du Trocadéro.

Built in 1937 from the ruins of the Palais du Trocadéro, the wings of the Palais Chaillot were built on either side of the esplanade and are home, amongst other things, to the anthropological museum the Musée de l’Homme, the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine, and the National Marine Museum.

Passy Cemetery lies to the south-west of Place du Trocadéro. Here you will find the graves of many famous historical figures, including Claude Debussy, Edouard Manet and Fernandel.

 

Etoile/Champs-Elysées

From our stop on Avenue Carnot, you are just a few steps from Place Charles-de-Gaulle, in the middle of which stands the famous Arc de Triomphe. This monument was built by Napoleon I in 1806 to honour the memory of all the soldiers who had fought for France. Added in 1920 underneath the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, accompanied by the Eternal Flame, pays tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War. From the top of the moment, you can also enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Paris.

If you have the time, keep going along Avenue des Champs-Elysées, which stretches for a mile from Place Charles-de-Gaulle to Place de la Concorde. Widely considered the most beautiful avenue in the world, it is home to a large number of luxury boutiques.

Halfway along the avenue, heading south, you will find the Grand Palais, whose imposing architecture and immense glass roof makes it easy to spot. It hosts numerous exhibitions and cultural events throughout the year.

Continue on your path to end of the avenue, where you will find Place de la Concorde, also accessible from the Place Charles-de-Gaulle metro. This historic square is notably known for being the site of executions during the French Revolution. Since 1836, it has also been home to the 3,000-year-old Luxor Obelisk! Lastly, if you aren’t in too much of a hurry, take a walk through the Tuileries Gardens on the other side of the square.

Porte Maillot

Place de la Porte Maillot, sitting at the border of the 16th and 17th arrondissements of Paris, offers above all an opportunity to visit the Palais des Congrès, which can be found right next to our stop. Opened in 1974, the building hosts conventions, trade fairs and conferences, as well as numerous shows throughout the year.
