Transport to Paris
Walking around Paris is a pure delight, with so many beautiful buildings, monuments, and statues that will steal your glance. However, Paris is a sprawling metropolitan city and while exploring on foot is certainly the best way to experience the city, you may want to take advantage of its efficient and inexpensive public transport network which consists of the Metro, the Réseau Express Régional (RER) suburban rapid transit train and public buses.
As a major gateway into Europe, Paris is served by 5 airports, with Charles de Gaulle and Orly being the two busiest airports and the most served airports for transatlantic flights. You'll almost always find flights to Paris from any major airport in the USA and Canada as well as short flights from almost all of our European cities.
Paris is also very well connected by train. It can be reached by train in a matter of hours from elsewhere in France and all major European cities. All 9 stations bring you right into the heart of the city, although the Gare du Nord and Gare de L'Est are its two major stations of entry.
