best and cheapest way to get from airport CDG to Louvre

by jillyboo45

My daughter will be on exchange from January to May and is staying near the Louvre. She will have a heavy luggage and she has knee problems. What would be the best way to get from the airport to her apartment?


Re: best and cheapest way to get from airport CDG to Louvre

CDG is located 23km (16 miles) north-east of Paris you have Paris Airport Bus. Air France (but you don't have to fly AF to use it) has two bus lines running from Charles de Gaulle airport into Paris around 15€/person, one stops at Etoile. I've only used the Orly bus.
Since you mention "heavy luggage" probably the best is somthing called "Paris Airport Shuttle," (never used it) but it's announced as "the best value for the money for travellers who want convenience for an economical price when choosing a Paris airport transfer, include advance reservation, door to door service, an English speaking driver and a fixed price. Drawbacks include the waiting time for the shuttle upon arrival at the airport (it could be more than the 15 min wait for the bus) and the additional time required to drop off / pick up other passengers. The airport shuttle only serves points inside the city limits"

Take a shuttle bus to the Louvre area. A taxi is very expensive, but with a bum knee, maybe pay for that door to door service would be better. She still has to carry the stuff to the apartment, so who knows...pack light Cheers Tommy x

Hi. If she has a knee problem, she does not want to climb up and down Metro stairs. She could take a taxi but that's pretty expensive. We have used the Paris Blue Shuttle a few times and it's pretty reasonable. Book ahead and they will have someone standing there with your name on a sign. They will take your luggage out to the shuttle van and drop you at your hotel or apartment. It costs about 18 euros a person if you don't mind sharing the van. (They will schedule a private van for you but that costs more.) We've never had a problem with them; they have been prompt, polite, speak English and get us where we're going. Here's their web site:

There are a couple bus services including public buses, but with heavy luggage, I'd save the buses for travel after settling into the apartment when she doesn't have to deal with anything larger than a purse or briefcase.

Take the airport shuttle. Not worth lugging heavy luggage and will receive door to door service at a reasonable price.

I think Airportways is the best if you consider the the how fast and reliable they are. And their prices are also okay.

Travel Tips for Paris

musee d'orsay

by liquidkitty1

look into the museum pass; it is well worth it!
it must be used consecutively (and includes versailles).
this museum is magnificent and i would advise you to begin on the top floor (impressionists) and work your way down but don't forget to check out the view from the roof off the cafe!!! you can get a sandwich outside.
the longest line will be up and down the eiffel tower (advise walking down -it's fun) or possibly st chapelle (near notre dame) which is not included. the scale of all the famous buildings and lovely fluidity of the most beautiful walking city!

Of course you have those...

by marieke

Of course you have those touristic things like the tour de Eiffel or Champs-Elyseés or something like that, and of course also le Sacré Coeur. I really advise everyone to visit
Monmartre, that's the most beautiful place of Paris I think.
It's a pity that it's so touristic in there, but it is still beautiful, you walk around and suddenly you hear the sound of a piano, and when you walk on, you see someone playing the piano in a café in a small street. The houses are very beautiful!! Paris is too big to visit it in one day, I've been there with school from 11 o'clock in the morning, untill 1 o'clock in the night, and i think i've only seen 1/1000 part of this beautiful city!!! There are a lot of beautiful places near the Seine, and there's a square near le Centre Pompidou, where often perform great artists.

La Défense - quite different Paris

by matcrazy1

I was sufficiently intrigued by the "cubist" appearance of La Grande Arche de La Défense that I decided to hop on the next Métro underground train.... and took a ride to the western terminus of "Line 1", just across the river Seine, to check the place out.
Wow, Paris really smells different from other cities. This is due to the large volumes of very choice fragrances which have been used in a relatively small area over the ages. The fragrant volatile organic compounds are absorbed into the superstructure, where they mature over time to produce the fragrance of Paris today.

Great Books on Customs/Understanding Parisians

by Albernfrau

Two FABULOUS books for understanding the French and particularly the Parisians are:

Culture Shock! France and Xenophobes Guide to the French. We bought these books in a Canadian bookstore in Paris and only wish we had bought them before we left Canada. They provided so much insight into French culture and customs and so many things made more sense once we read the books. Unfortunately we read them near the end of our trip. Topics covered include: manners, dress, dogs, driving, dating, eating, everything.

These books each part of a series. You can get the books about almost every country which is what I am going to do every time I am planning a trip. sells them and I even found a few on Ebay.

The most wonderful resource almost as useful as a guidebook!

In the heart of Paris, the...


In the heart of Paris, the Cité island has been inhabited since the Roman. As the religious and political center of France for centuries, it retains splendid buildings with among them three marvels: the Notre-Dame cathedral, the Conciergerie prison and the Sainte-Chapelle holy chapel, the shrine of Christ's thorn crown. It also has the Quai des Orfèvres police bureau, famous for taking care of criminal affairs.
Completely surrounded by the Seine river, the island is worth walking through from Notre-Dame to the Vert-Galant garden, famous for its lovers.
Near the Cité island, the small Ile Saint-Louis (Saint- Louis island) is one of the loveliest districts of Paris: nice and romantic river banks, 18th century houses, village like life. The whole island almost retains its 18th century outlook. Recently, the Ile Saint-Louis has become very fashionable and expensive. Former French president Georges Pompidou lived there.
Look for Bertillon, the best French ice-cream maker, at 31, rue Saint-Louis en l'Ile. This always crowded shop is a nice stop a few hundreds meters away from Notre-Dame.
Also consider staying at one of the charming hotels of the rue Saint-Louis en l'Ile.
The island is best accessed from the Cité island on foot. The closest metro station to the Ile Saint-Louis is Saint-Paul on line 1 (10 minutes walk).
