CDG airport to Paris: bus for 4 older people?

by almaj16

Hi there!

I've seen that most people recommend to go from CDG airport to Paris with public transportation.
But... what about if you are 4 people, and two of them are over 65 with low mobility?
We will be staying near Lafayette. Wouldn't a taxi be more convenient?

Thanks for your time!

Pedro is right, taxis can be picky. Legally by law they can refuse a passenger next to them in the front, so as you are 4..... better as he suggests and take a shuttle.

You should also consider a private transfer (http://www.parishuttle.com/rates_transfer_airport_paris.php). With 4 people the cost is only about $20 more than doing a shuttle where you may have 6-7 people and a couple of stops. You don't say where you are coming from, but after a long flight having someone meet you as you come out with your luggage, and help with the transition from airport to city center is worth the price. JMHO. The problem with some of the public transportation methods is figuring where things are and then the luggage, which can be a pain even on the Airfrance bus, let alone taking the RER to a metro station and then changing lines, etc. Karl

Pedro has the answer. Just google your query and you will see that there are many operators willing to carry you exclusively which is how I would go as they will be just looking for you at the airport. Give them your mobile number as you can easily find each other once you have exited customs. I always book online and get a printout of the arrangements and carry that with me.

Hi. We've used the Paris Blue Shuttle and you can either go with enough people to make up 8 altogether or you can book for just your party. http://www.paris-blue-airport-shuttle.fr/index_en.php

Another option if each of you is paying your own way is a limosine pickup. We've also done that and it is 20 euros per person for 4 people. That's nearly the price of a shuttle and a pleasant way to approach Paris. We have used FirstWay and they were great. http://www.firstway.fr/location-voiture-avec-chauffeur/voitures-chauffeur/home-us.php

Enjoy your trip.

I have used the Blue and even the Grey shuttle they are all OK and reliable. Many of these companies are a family concern and are great for additional travel around Paris.

Travel Tips for Paris

Visit the Opera Garnier (Opera...

by freya_heaven

Visit the Opera Garnier (Opera House), it was built in 1860 & is just so opulent & grand, Both inside & out. You can visit 11am to 4.30pm except Sundays. Apart from the wonderful buildings & architecture there, Relaxing in a cafe & people watching.

A recommended "parisian-watching" cafe

by davequ

Cafe Le Ponthieu on Boulevard FDR is a quiet, and "unadvertised" cafe just a street or two east of the Champs Elysees that is really fun for Parisian people-watching.
(It's also a wi-fi hotspot if you like to lug your laptop around Paris)

I spent a few hours on my last trip to Paris sitting here taking in the street vibe of Paris, complete with stylish monsieurs and madames.

At first it sounds boring, but as time passes you start to notice and appreciate the discrete difference between two great cities like NYC and Paris.

Try it: you'll like it.

Cafe Ponthieu 51 Ave FDR

It's one...

by steventilly

see the Eiffel Tower.

It's one of, if not The most famous building in the world. I thought it would just be a clichee, something not worth seeing and yet something everyone says you must see. Not so. It was a great experience seeing and going up the tower. We spent nearly all day there! We liked the first stage best, really, as you're not so cramped for space and there's things to do (cafe/restaurant, shops, post office). Grab a meal and a beer and write your postcards. Then take some snaps and away you go.

Skipping lines

by BeatChick

While standing in line at Nôtre Dame Easter 2003, waiting for the church to open up for the Pâques mass, I turned around to strike up a conversation with a couple from Atlanta; when I turned around a French man had ducked in front of me! I tried to explain to him that he had skipped line but apparently he didn’t understand the concept.

For the 1st time of this entire trip I didn’t have the ability to convey my meaning, not even thru hand gestures. Presently, he moved off to the side to carry on a conversation with another person so I moved on up to claim my spot RIGHT NEXT TO THE GATE (sucker). The Atlanta couple & I shared a moment of bemused eye rolling.

Perhaps it's true what they say about the fundamental difference between the English & the French: the former know how to queue up in line and the latter don't! Now I don't wish to further any stereotypes but I do think it was funny and it was definitely an eye-opening cultural experience.

So the best thing to do is stake your claim on your spot but if someone happens to move ahead of you just chalk it up to cultural differences, try not to be offended, laugh it off. You are here to have a good time, attitude is everything and a good one will carry you far. It is France after all - c'est la vie!

Cour de Rohan: Courtyard I

by BeatChick

1st Courtyard
Called the "Best Hidden Courtyard" by Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Paris is a cluster of 3 cloistered, cobblestoned, medieval courtyards collectively known as the Cour du Rohan found in the St-Germain-des-Prés district of the 6th arrondissement. Accessed via rue du Jardinet (street of the small garden) or Cour du Commerce St-André (both accessed from rue du St-André-des-Arts or Bd St-Germain), the courtyards sat just inside the Phillippe-Auguste wall. You may still see a tower inside 4, Cour du Commerce St-André. Rohan is a bastardization of the name Rouen, as this was once the hôtel of the bishops of Rouen, built during the 15th century.

Because this is a private courtyard, the gate is marked Privé and is sometimes locked and only accessible via a digicode. Gates are definitely locked on Sundays. However, I've you have a better chance entering in the morning as this is when deliveries occur and also when the gates are open to parents dropping off their children to a nursery/daycare/school inside. Thirza Vallois, who wrote Around & About Paris and also Romantic Paris says the best time is to "come back after dark (hopefully the gates won’t be locked). I shall refrain from saying more and let you unwrap the surprise on your own."

In the first courtyard at 9, Cour de Rohan you’ll find Madame Alvarez's (Hermione Gingold) apartment (10), where Gigi (Leslie Caron) lived with her Grandmamma in the Lerner/Lowe film classic, Gigi.

2 - Madame Alvarez's Home in Gigi. You'll remember the scene when Leslie Caron runs up these steps to return home.
3 - Blue Skies over Cour de Rohan. Just on the other side of this wall is the Cour du Commerce-St-André which will lead you to the back entrance of Le Procope, the oldest café in Paris.
4 - Roses in a window box.
5 - Elephant set inside a niche in the wall. Walk around to discover more unusual details!
