Start at the French Government Tourist Office (, with offices in New York (825 Third Ave., 29th floor; 212-838-7800) and Los Angeles (9454 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 210; 310-271-6665), can provide free maps and brochures. Also helpful is the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau (, whose Web site offers online hotel reservations, sells the Paris Museum Pass and explains all the transit-pass options (a one-week Carte Orange for zones 1 and 2, purchased at Métro and RER stations and requiring a passport-size photo, is a better value than the Paris Visite pass); it has kiosks at seven locations, including the Carrousel du Louvre and Gare de Lyon and Gare du Nord railroad stations.
