When to go
Paris is a year-round destination, although many residents take their holidays in August, when many businesses shut up shop.
PlanesMost international flights land at Charles de Gaulle Airport; regional flights arrive into Paris Orly. Buses and trains run regularly from the airports to the city centre at a fraction of the cost of taxis.
TrainsSkip the airports and arrive by Eurostar if you’re coming from London, Amsterdam or Brussels.
AutomobilesLeave driving to the professionals – after all, it feels far more Parisian to stroll beside the Seine or explore the alleys of Saint-Germain-des-Prés on foot.
