Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) has connections to more foreign destinations than any other airport in the world. Unless you're arriving in Paris on a budget or domestic airline, you'll probably fly into CDG, which is located 23 km or 14 miles from central Paris in the suburb of Roissy.


ABOVE: After collecting your bags at CDG, you'll need to find your way into the city.

You have a number of options for reaching the city from Charles de Gaulle Airport. The cheapest is the RER train, which has several stops in central Paris and connects with the Métro system.
