Getting to Boulogne Billancourt

Jump to last reply

Hello all, hope you can help me with this as I've tried googling and scouring different travel forums to no avail.

I will be staying in Paris in late February, and my hotel is La Demeure in 13e (nearest Metro station is Les Gobelins). I have tickets to watch the singer Bjork perform at the Grand Chapiteau, Cirque en Chantier: http://www.fnacspectacles.com//place-spectacle/manifestation/Pop-rock-Folk-BJORK-CIBJO.htm

I'm trying to figure out how to get from my hotel to Boulogne Billancourt, because someone told me that it's in the suburbs of Paris. Google Maps tells me to take the M7 from Les Gobelins and change to the M10 at Jussieu, getting off at the Boulogne - Jean Jaurès stop and walking to the venue. The directions on the Cirque en Chantier website are even more convoluted and confusing to me after running it through Google translate:

"City Boulogne Billancourt is served by several Metro stations: Pont de Sèvres (terminal line 9), Pont de Saint-Cloud (terminal line 10), Boulogne Jean Jaurès (line 10 ) Billancourt (L9), Sembat (L9) and Porte de Saint-Cloud (L9).

The two stations closest to the Grand Chapiteau are Pont de Sèvres and Billancourt. Upon exiting the station, follow a portion of the avenue du Général Leclerc and Rue Yves Kermen to reach the Seguin course that extends the bridge Renault and provides access to the Island (10 walking 15 minutes). From the metro station Pont de Sèvres, we recommend you take exit 1 and turn left at the street level to follow the platform to the stairs Georges Gorse."

Is anyone familiar to this area and can help give me advice that isn't quite so confusing? Thanks so much!
