It’s hard to encapsulate into one word. What comes to mind when you think of Champs-Élysées or La Tour Eiffel? Paris could be described as mesmerising, with its cafes, colourfully lit boulevards of restaurants, the extremely modern architecture juxtaposed with wonderfully old buildings built over a period of 1000 years. Or, you might think it is like Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”: a place where dreams come true in unusual ways. Even now, artists and writers are drawn to the city for creative inspiration from Parisian art galleries and museums, and to tread in the footsteps of Hemingway, Sylvia Plath, Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, Allen Ginsberg and Jane Birkin, to name a few. The city is stylish wherever one goes and it is easy to feel caught up in the movement of the rhythmic beat of a city that does not sleep — at least not very often.
The city is divided into 20 arrondissements, which start at No. 1 in the centre of the city and curve in a spiral, outwards like a proverbial French snail! What is most striking are the different atmospheres created in each arrondissement. Each district has a different and inspiring icon, and wherever you go there is something to observe — be it the Eiffel Tower, the Orsay Museum or Centre Pompidou — in awe of their magnificence as architectural structures — not to mention what is inside them. Architecture is both futuristic and functional, or historic and seeped in provenance.
Paris can be penetrated from all sides by car which is a wonderful introduction to the delights of long boulevards, shops, green parks and delightful walks to be taken alongside the riverbanks of The Seine. A holiday should include favourite Parisian pastimes of drinking coffee and people watching, and they do coffee in style here; sometimes spilling out onto the pavements al fresco or sometimes in basement cave-like cafes which have been serving coffee for the past 100 years — think the Latin Quarter and the Moulin Rouge as depicted by Toulouse-Lautrec. Paris is of course also famous for it’s infinitely modish shopping — Chanel and Bulgari to Dior and Prada, as well as Nina Ricci and Jean Paul Gaultier, all the main players in the design industry are there.
Upon arrival, it will first seem daunting and it is best to purchase a map and have a chat with Information Services at the airport at which you have arrived. That will be at one of the following: Roissy-Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG), Orly International Airport (ORY) and Beauvais-Tillé Airport (BVA). Given that Paris is like a gateway to Europe, there are many options that you will be faced with when you arrive at one of the airports. The major stress-factor will be knowing how to get around the slightly confusing streets in this beautifully complex city.
Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle International Airport (CDG)
Upon arriving at Charles de Gaulle, you will find that you need a terminal map to get out of there — this will show you to the drop-off areas for the multiple modes of transport that depart from here. You might take the RoissyBus (60 min.) or Le Bus Direct Line 4 (60-70 min.) which take you to a myriad of arrondissements in Paris. For those night-travelers, the Noctilien Night Bus Line 120 (30 min.) will take you to the train stations Corbeil-Essonnes ‘Gare de Corbeil-Essonnes’, La Verrière ‘Gare de La Verrière’ (Line 121) and Paris Est ‘Gare de l'Est’ by Line 140. That is just the public transport — you can take a taxi to anywhere and any destination or rent a car, available within CDG Terminals 1 and 2. Do note, though, that taxis will only leave from one particular gate with customers and are delineated by a light on the roof. Also, to note is that there might be people at the baggage claim area interloping as taxi drivers, so please decline as you see fit.
Orly Airport (ORY)
Upon arriving at ORY you will be faced with several delightful options with regards to public transport. There are two Paris RER lines and two buses. The RER lines are very tech and fun shuttles which are fast and automated — gliding and shimmying into the centre of Paris. There are taxis and car rentals available and it would be pertinent to check in advance which gate the taxis depart from. If you are on a budget and your luggage is easily handled, the tram and the metro which at less than 4 euros can get you to the centre of Paris, is a breeze. This takes an hour after transferring to the Orly-Sud Terminal and taking the Orlyval to the T7. These departures go the heart of Paris.
Another option for car travel is a pre-booked airport transport service, which is often cheaper than taxis but with similar benefits and more. You will be awaited at the airport pick-up gates, payment will be sorted, and there will be someone to help you to carry your luggage!
Beauvais-Tillé Airport (BVA)
Otherwise known as Paris-Beauvais, Beauvais-Tillé Airport is a little further afield than the others, in the Picardy region (about 85 km from city centre), but is still a major airport. It is about 1h 15m from Paris, so if travelling there it is advisable to start your journey at least 3 hours or so before your flight leaves. For those arriving, the Beauvais train station is almost 4 km away and so a shuttle or bus would be required. Taxis are an option but the most reliable option would be a private scheduled transfer, which can be booked to take you straight into Paris and to your hotel or accommodation.
When it comes to these three international airports, pre-booking and pre-paying your airport transfer services will be a life saver, especially if you are travelling from afar or prefer a streamlined travelling process. Once in the city, you have the luxury of the TGV (High Speed Train) which can take you anywhere from Paris to other cities, all departing from 1 of 6 terminals. You also have Le Métro — the must-have train-travel method around Paris.
With travel logistics sorted, you can start to enjoy Parisian living, if just for a short while. Observe society, tuck into fresh buttery croissants, down copious amounts of coffee or drink “in moderation” at the bars and clubs that are scattered across the City of Lights!
