It's on the site of the present-day Place de la Concorde, a major public square in Paris. Memory Beta has an excellent ariel photo of the Place here.

As for the call sign issue, if Queen Elizabeth gets her own ship of state (before Blair decided it cost too much), then why shouldn't Bacco? Perks of the job and all that!
the Royal Yacht was called 'Britannia', so you suggesting 'Federation'?
Erm, once again, A Singular Destiny seems pretty explicit. The President's ship is called Paris One, and as it's italicized, that strongly implies that it's a ship's name rather than a call sign.
