Transport in Paris
The Paris Metro, with its famous Art Nouveau station entrances, covers the whole of the city, across 16 lines. With the stations very close together, especially in the centre, it is generally the easiest way to get from A to B in Paris.
Gare du Nord
serves the North of France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands and Great Britain.
Gare de l'Est
serves the East of France, Austria, Luxembourg and Southern Germany.
Gare de Lyon
serves the south and south-east of France, Switzerland and Italy.
RER Suburban Railway
The RER (Réseau Express Régional, or Regional Express Network) connects the centre of Paris with its suburbs. It consists of 5 lines, A to E:
Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)
Charles de Gaulle Airport
is located approximately 14.5 miles (23km) to the north-east of Paris. It is on the RER-B line, accessible by road from the A1 motorway and is served by buses from Gare de Nord and Gare de l'est and by coach from Porte Maillot, Etoile, Gare de Lyon and Montparnasse.
Paris Orly Airport (ORY)
Paris Orly Airport
is located approximately 9 miles (14km) to the south of the city centre. The airport is accesible by road from the A6 motorway or the N7 trunk road. While not served as well by public transport as CDG, there are shuttle buses connecting Orly with both the Metro and the RER-B line.
