How do I call Paris when I'm in the US?

  1. First dial 011, the international prefix which allows you to get out of the country.

  2. Then dial the international country code for France: 33.

  3. Then dial the city code for Paris: 1. For the purpose of telecommunications, France is divided in several regions, each with its own code. If you were in France and wanted to call a number in Paris, you would dial “01”. But since you are calling from outside France, you only dial 1.

    Your dialed number now looks like: 011 33 1

  4. Now dial the last eight digits of your number. If the full number of your party is 01 22 22 22 22, the last eight digits are 22 22 22 22.

    So you dial: 011 33 1 XX XX XX XX
