Parking:

For security reasons, parking is not available within the French Embassy. Paid, street parking is available on Reservoir Rd with restrictions during rush hours.

For this reason, we recommend to use the paid parking available in front of the Embassy on the premises of the Georgetown University Hospital.

The best of all options, especially when tasting wine is involved, is NOT to drive! Take a cab or use Uber!

 

Public Transportation:

The French Embassy is not located directly on the Metro, but maybe accessed via a combination of Metrorail and Metro Bus. The closest stop is Dupont Circle, located on the RED line.
