Airports in Paris

Most visitors will first see Paris at Charles De Gaulle Airport (code: CDG) – it’s just outside the city at a place called “Roissy”. There is another large airport at Orly (code: ORY), which is now largely used only by domestic French airlines and some European Union budget airlines. An important historic airport around Paris is also Le Bourget (LBG) although that is now closed to all but General Aviation flights. Note that the airport rather bewilderingly called “Paris-Beauvais” is a considerable (around 40 miles) distance away from the capital, though it’s also used mainly by European budget flight carriers.

Charles de Gaulle is a very big and ultra-modern airport with everything you would need for a comfortable flight experience. Most official airport personnel with have a least some knowledge of English and perhaps some other languages in addition to French. Watch out for unofficial taxi touts, guides and scammers. They’re not commonplace, as the airport is vigorously patrolled but keep your wits about you in the large open public spaces.

Specific Airport Links Paris

  • There are rail links from the airport directly into Paris. These are both fast ‘mainline’ trains and slower local regional railways. The journey time is fast overall though and the prices moderate.
  • There is also an automatic shuttle train (CDGVAL) than runs roughly every four minutes between the various termini at the airport.
  • You can easily take a taxi to the city center, remembering to only use officially licensed vehicles. Private car or van transfers are also available though it’s advisable to book in advance and they can be expensive.
  • There are also both shuttle and public buses but they can be unpredictable in terms of availability.

Bonjour Paris! - Fun Family Intro Tour

We love Wan! We only had a few hours in Paris but Wan made it perfect! My boys (5, 7, 9) asked her lots of questions and she is very knowledgeable! Thank for you introducing our family to Paris!

Impressionism Tour: Musee d'Orsay Skip the Line

My husband and I had two great tours with Hugo in Paris. We visited the Louvre and d’Orsay. Hugo was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. He helped us navigate these excellent and very large museums, making sure we saw the can’t miss paintings and sculptures and sharing insightful information about the artists and their art. I highly recommend Hugo.

Parisian Kickstart Tour with a Local

Chloe was great! She took us to some amazing places which we wouldn’t have found by ourselves. She was so kind when she had to wait for us because we were late (we messed up navigating the metro system). Chloe’s friendly, interesting information about what we were seeing even kept our boys interested. Jo & Joe
