Mississauga, Canada

How far is it from CDG as I have only 7 hours in Paris and is it possible to see this basilica and get back to the airport in time for my onward flight? Thanks for your responses.

Previous answers are probably the best with taxis being quicker. However the Metro is also available and a one one trip would take about an hour.

The Basilica is quite stunning and well worth the visit.

I am not sure if you have 7 FULL hours available to you. Timing could depend on local or international flight requirements and how long it takes to get through Immigration and ticketing.

According to Google Maps, it’s 11 miles and 21 minutes by car from CDG to the basilica. Since you’ll be probably be carrying luggage, I suggest taking a taxi, although I don’t know what the fare would be. The basilica is worth the cab-fare splurge, though. Maybe you’ll also have time to grab a bite in the neighborhood. Good luck.

Hello boy taxi it is only about 15 minutes to st Denis so you have plenty of time. Instead of taking a taxi take Uber which is much cheaper. You will love it and don’t worry you’ll manage. It takes about 1 to 2 hours to visit the cathedral Enjoy

You will need 1,5 hours CDG Airport to get to the cathedral in St. Denis by public transport (train) or 30 minutes by taxi.

Remember, St. Denis is not central Paris.

You can also take the direct train form CDG Airport to the Notre Dame in central Paris, which will take approx. 1 hour.
