Paris Charles de Gaulle is about 14 miles to the North East of Paris and there are many ways for new arrivals to reach the city centre.
A bus service departs from each of the 3 terminals every 15-20 minutes and will take passengers direct to Place de l’Opera, from which many of the city’s fantastic attractions are within easy reach. Each journey takes around 45 minutes. There are also a number of private companies running buses to other locations in the city at varying prices. One of the many highlights of the city, the famous Disneyland Paris, is located about 25 miles from the airport. A regular shuttle bus runs to this theme park from each of the airport terminals.
The airport also has its own railway station offering direct rail links to the stations of Gare du Nord, St Michel, Chatelet-les-Halles and Denfert-Rochereau. Located on the 4th floor of Terminal 2, the shuttle train is the best way of reaching the railway station from Terminals 1 and 3. Trains to Paris leave regularly from the airport every 4 - 15 minutes. Having reached the centre of Paris, visitors can explore the beauty and architecture of the city with ease with the comfortable and convenient Metro system.
Standard metered rates into central Paris are around €50. Fares increase by about 15 per cent at night, and on Sundays and public holidays.
For those who wish to drive to the airport, the clear directions and generous parking make it an extremely feasible option. Just follow the A1 motorway along the eastern side of the airport grounds and exit at junction 6.
The airport is very well provided with car parking spaces. Each of the three terminals has its own car park where visitors can be dropped off before departure. The first ten minutes parking is free in each of these car parks, making them convenient as drop-off points. Terminal 1 has two car parks. The first, P1, is a short-term multi-storey car park with over 1700 spaces. The second, PR, is a long-term car park with over 1300 spaces and is set in the open-air.
All of the car parks are linked to each terminal by the free shuttle bus that services the entire area. Terminal 2 has four car parks, two short-term and two long-term, with a combined number of spaces of over 14,000. Terminal 3 has one long-term open-air car park.
A huge selection of shops and restaurants. The airport has over twenty duty-free stores. Passengers travelling from Terminal 3 should note that the selection here is limited to just two bars and two shops, and the best range of pre-flight facilities can be found in Terminals 1 and 2. A free 24-hour shuttle train connects the 3 terminals.
