How to Get to Paris
When you fly into Paris you will be landing at either the Charles De Gaulle Airport (airport code: CDG) or the Paris Orly Airport (airport code: ORY). Both airports are roughly a 30-minute car ride from the city, but you have multiple options when it comes to how you chose to reach your accommodation. You can book a taxi, Uber, train, or bus. It is all about what works best for you and your budget!
It is also important to note that Paris is split up into different numbered districts called arrondissements. Arrondissement 1 is located in the center of the city and from there the arrondissements increase in number in a spiral pattern.
How to Get Around Paris
Navigating public transportation in Paris can be a bit tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it it will be a very cheap and efficient way to get around. The Réseau Express Régional (RER) is the public transit system of Paris and will give you access to just about anywhere you want to go. It has routes to all the major attractions and throughout the suburbs of Paris.
If you don’t want to use the RER, a combination of walking and Ubers/taxis can also be an efficient way to get around. The streets of Paris are beautiful, so sometimes spending the extra time to walk to your destination is totally worth it.
Depending on which arrondissement you are staying in, you will likely be within walking distance to some main sights such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Montmartre, and so much more. If your destination is a bit too far to walk and you don’t mind spending a bit of extra money, you can definitely take an Uber or Taxi.
