The following directions are from the RER Line C station at Champs de Mars - Tour Eiffel, which is on the west side of the Eiffel Tower. (The Bir-Hakeim stop of Métro Line 6 is just around the corner.)

Note: If you're walking to the port from a hotel near the Eiffel Tower, we suggest heading directly for the Boulevard de Grenelle and the Seine. As you approach the Pont de Bir-Hakeim bridge, you can follow our directions from step 3 below.

1. Take RER Line C to Champ de Mars - Tour Eiffel and exit to the street.
