Paris is one of Europe’s most walkable cities, with many top attractions conveniently close together. For instance, you can walk from the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower in 45 minutes, seeing all the sights along the way. However, public transportation can get you from point A to point B blister-free. The Paris Métro is inexpensive and easy to use, with stops at all major tourist spots.
Also consider the Batobus boat, which offers transport along the Seine with stops at nine major landmarks including the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. You can also rent bikes at Vélib stations throughout the city to peddle your way around Paris.
The Paris Métro includes metro trains, Réseau Express Régional trains (RER) and buses.
The RAPT app uses geolocation to find nearby public transportation and can show you in real time when transport will arrive. You can also use it to plan the route to your destination.
Get your bearings and plot the smoothest route to your top destinations using the official Paris Métro map.
Renting a car in Paris is not recommended, since it’s usually faster to get around using public transportation.
But if you’re intent on borrowing a set of wheels, these companies have hubs at Charles de Gaulle:
Keep in mind not all rental companies are available at every terminal. Use our rental car finder to compare prices and find the best deals.
Taxi. Hailing a taxi can get frustrating for visitors — especially if you don’t know about the taxi stands around the city. Technically if you’re within 162 feet from a taxi stand, you need to hop in line to get a ride. Taxis won’t always automatically stop for you if you’re on the side of the road. You can also call and book a taxi in advance.
Uber. You can catch an Uber from Charles de Gaulle airport to the city center for about €50 to 80 ($56 to $90). And expect to pay between €35 to 50 ($39 to 56) for a ride from Orly International Airport to Paris.
Airport transfers from both Charles de Gaulle and Orly International airports are a worry-free way to get to Paris quickly.
To live like the locals when you’re a sightseer in Paris, embrace le métro. Not only is it convenient and affordable, you’ll be in the thick of la vie Parisienne. But whether you rent a car or cruise the Batobus, you’ll never run out of things to do and places to see in Paris.
