What is the best way to get from CDG airport to the city (unsure where our hotel will be yet)? We are a family with 3 kids, ages 6, 4 and 1.5 years old. The last time I took a taxi from the Milan airport to the city, it cost me a whopping 110€! Is there a lift servicing the airport train both at the airport and at the Gare/ Metro station?

    Everyone knows there is a train. But with 3 young kids and luggage, I needed to know if it is easy to get from terminal to inside the train, using trolly and lifts, and similarly at the city station side. In Milan, it was not like that and worse, with no lifts from the station to the train platforms and platforms numbers appearing only 5 mins before arrival, it was tough. Hence my question. about 6 years ago

    get a taxi - as first timers in Paris we got several taxis and had no bad experiences.go to the official queue, it may be on a different level to baggage collection. Write your destination on a piece of paper to show the driver if necessary(consider saying no to any drivers coming up to you at baggage collection offering their services,they will charge a fixed price and not use a meter. about 6 years ago

    U take the metro to one of the rapt trains. They go to the suburbs. Blue one goes to the airport. Think u can catch it at gare de la nord (north train station) amongst other places. Lifts aren't guaranteed in all stops but there are escalators. It's not that hard with luggage but takes time and is 9.5 euro pp plus metro fare. Also they strike a bunch so go extra early. Alternately the airport shuttle bus stops in front of the opera house every 15-20 min and is like 15 euro direct to cdg. A cab will run u about 70+ euro. about 6 years ago

    Also coming in from the airport is super easy as u can trolley your luggage direct to the station and it'll tell u where it connects to Paris metro. The lines are color coded. It's easy to figure out no worries. And they do speak English. about 6 years ago

    Fawzi, if you take a taxi make sure the luggage is secured (preferably out of sight) in the trunk. There's an occasional problem with motorcycle snatch-and-run thieves targeting taxis on the freeway from CDG to the city. The traffic's often gridlocked so you're sitting ducks. They'll even reach into a window and grab a handbag.
    The Metro is also the haunt of pickpockets, so while you're distracted by all your luggage, 3 kids and the wonder of being in beautiful Paris, they may target you and your family. Assign one of the older kids the job of being pickpocket lookout.

    Having said that, you'll love Paris. It's very beautiful with plenty for the kids to do as well as parents.

    I hear super shuttle (flat fee) is a good deal though i have yet to use them. The flat we are going to stay at this Summer recommended them. The owners of the rental gave us the discount code when we book with them. Reserve in advance. almost 6 years ago

    Taxi will cost you 60-80 euros, depending on traffic. There are several shuttle van services, which are good options, but MAY charge you, per person, for the kids, which would make them more expensive than a taxi. The train may be a bit challenging with the kids. No guarantee that any of the lifts/escalators will work at the airport or Metro stations. They don't work about 25% of the time. There are also buses from the airport, that may not be a bad option (if they don't make you pay full fare for all the kids). almost 6 years ago
