Orly is located 14 km or about 9 miles south of central Paris, on the opposite side of the city from Charles de Gaulle. It has two terminals, Orly-Sud and Orly-Ouest, both of which are smaller and easier to navigate than their counterparts at CDG. Orly has good transportation into the city, and it's especially convenient if you're staying on the Left Bank.
