Hi there!

You're going to take the RER "B" line (blue) train from CDG to Gare du Nord station in Paris. Once there, you will transfer to the Metro (subway) to make your way to the 3 ducks. I'm very sorry, I don't have a handy metro map on me, but you'll be able to figure it out when you get there: The metro stop for the 3 Ducks is "FELIX FAURE" near the Eiffel Tower.

Have a great time!! I love Paris.

Weird - the new 3 Ducks web site says that it's at the Commerce station. Anyway...

From Charles de Gaulle, take the RER train "B" (blue line) into Paris.

To get to the 3 Ducks, get off at the St. Michel-Notre Dame station.

Option 1: Take the underground conveyors to the Cluny/Sorbonne Metro stop (it's all connected to the St. Michel station) and get on Metro line 10 (gold) toward Boulogne/Pont de St. Cloud. Get off at the La Motte Picquet Grenelle stop and transfer to Metro line 8 (violet) toward Balard - go a stop or two to the Commerce or Felix Faure stop and get out there.

Option 2: At the St. Michel station, get on the RER train "C" (yellow line) westbound. Get off at the Invalides station. Transfer to Metro line 8 (violet) toward Balard, and once again, get out at the Commerce or Felix Faure stop.

To get to Gare Montparnasse from the airport, take the RER B (blue) all the way to the Denfert Rochereau station. Transfer to Metro line 4 (magenta) toward Porte de Clignancourt. Get off 3 stops later at Montparnasse.

Here's a decent image of the Paris Metro system, but you'll be able to get a much clearer map when you get there.
