Charles de Gaulle Airport is a 35 minutes car drive from the north-east of Paris, and is about 25 kilometres from the city centre. This is the largest airport in Paris. It boasts passenger traffic of 12 million people crossing its many terminals every year.
It is accessible by various means of transportation, such as the public buses and trains. However, it may be stressful to understand how to use these public transportation systems work, which may make it difficult to ultimately get to your accommodation.
