    Driving in ile de France region

    by gwened Updated Dec 14, 2014

    The île de France is the vital heart of the country. It is quite natural that the region with the capital, hence the first node of communication of the national motorway network. The Ile-de-France region has no fewer than 800 km of highways. Paris the capital is the heart of a network of motorways in Star destined to all provincial metropolises: the Autoroute du soleil (A6, Dijon, Lyon and Marseille), the A1 (to Lille), the A13 to Normandy (Rouen, Caen, Le Havre), the A4 to the East (Reims, Metz, Strasbourg), the A10 towards Aquitaine (Nantes, Bordeaux, Rennes) being the main.
    The ring road allows access to all sectors of the capital by one of the many "doors" of Paris. The A86 motorway surrounding suburbs, and the Francilienne will soon allow access to more distant suburbs to a dozen kilometers from Paris. The local network is complemented by concentric highways and national roads to the main cities of the periphery of the island of France.
    The density of the Ile-de-France network to reach a destination by a multitude of routes. The other side of the coin is that some sectors are very often saturated, particularly the joint section of the A4 and A86 in the Val de Marne. Traffic jams are almost routine in peak hours in the areas of Champigny-sur-Marne, Bondy (at the level of the junction between the A86 is and the A3), of Aulnay-sous-Bois (in the direction of Lille just after the interchange with the N2), le Kremlin - Bicêtre (N7), Pont de Saint-Cloud (A13), or the viaduc de Gennevilliers. Plugs and slowdowns occur even at any hour of the day in the areas of Saint Maurice (common section with the A86), Charenton (at the level of Porte de Bercy) and Saint-Ouen - l ' Aumône (184).

    The autoroute A16 from the north will have an extension from L'Isle-Adam to reach the N104 Francilienne around the CDG airport beltway of Paris. It has been approve construction.

    The most convenient method to help you is to read one or more route planner such as
    www.mappy.com
    www.viamichelin.com

    together with a good paper map of the region by Michelin No 514 or better IGN no R03.

    together with the traffic info above the specialise sites I use are systadin and v-trafic

    Poissy is located in the Yvelines dept 78, about 15 km to the west of Paris - La Défense,and 30 km from Paris - Notre-Dame. I used to lived not far and it is an interesting city of Louis IX.

    well it is Paris airport???? or what lol!

    by gwened Updated Oct 13, 2014

    usually the tip is in the Paris page and they are. However, for the record the so call Paris airports are not in Paris but in ile de France.
    the so call CDG is in Roissy en France, dept 95 Val d'Oise just northwest of Paris ,and Orly well its in the city of Orly in Val de Marne no 94.
    that is why you need to take a much expensier train or RER ticket to get into PARIS.

    and more from the department Val d'Oise no 95 on their airport
    http://www.valdoise-tourisme.com/en/val-d-oise/roissy-CDG-airport.php

    the transportation site is Paris
    www.aeroportsdeparis.com
    and the www.ratp.fr
    or the ile de France transport site
    www.transilien.com

    By car you get out on the A1 and enter Paris by Porte de la Chapelle, and from Orly you take the A106 than A6 to Paris. You have the RER B from CDG and the OrlyVal from Orly or the Roissybus from CDG or the Orlybus from Orly.

    Orly is small and very easy to move about, CDG is bigger and sometime confusing to visitors but its easy multilingual and well signages.

    Line Saint-Cloud - Paris Saint-Lazare (M) : a train every 15 min.(my line)

    rental cars out of Paris airports

    by gwened Updated Nov 7, 2012

    get the best prices from my all time favorites even from abroad
    www.autoeurope.com
    www.kemwel.com
    deals with all majors car brokers best deals.

    at airports you pay the airport tax fee so a bit expensier. Depends which airport you find best airfare Roissy CDG or Orly.
    At CDG you go to Gare du Nord,on RER B train, rent them there, and drive out on blvd magenta towards porte de la chapelle and the peripherique or beltway, direction Rouen will link you up with Normandie.

    From Orly, better take the OrlyVal to Antony,
    http://www.orlyval.com/eu/index_eu.htm
    rent the car at Antony,get on the A86 expressway direction Versailles ,Creteil etc,and will link up with the N12 direction Rouen St Germain en Laye, then take the A13 direction Rouen to Normandie

    avoid work hours like 7-9am and 5-7pm hours and you will be ok, use for planning estimates www.viamichelin.com and ask for a map at counter from rental car company.

    hope it helps
