Arrival in Paris

There are two international airports that serve Paris: Roissy Charles de Gaulle (CDG), the larger of the two, about 15 miles northeast of Paris (near the town of Roissy); and Orly (ORL), about 9 miles south of Paris.

There is a variety of public and private transportation options available that you can use to get from the airport to your hotel.

You can go to the Paris Metro website to get the Paris Visite pass as well as various others including a Paris Museum pass.
