Discover luxury and boutique hotels in the Marais
When to go
There’s no bad time to see the City of Lights, although some businesses close in August, when the locals like to take their holidays.
PlanesMost international flights touch down at Charles de Gaulle Airport, and regional flights land at Paris Orly. It’s around an hour-long taxi ride to the Marais from Orly, and an hour or more from Charles de Gaulle, but buses and trains run regularly from both airports to the city centre for a fraction of the cost.
TrainsIf you’re coming from London, skip the airports and arrive via Eurostar.
AutomobilesLeave the roads to the residents – a trip free of pricey parking and the infamous Périphérique ring road will be much more romantic.
