Transfer to & from Charles de Gaulle Airport

hi

Looking for some help please for the easiest way to get to & from Charles de Gaulle airport to hotel on Rue La Boetie (near Champs Elysees) during the Tour de France in July 13. I would imagine a taxi would be the easiest but probably very costly, so looking for other options.

Never been to Paris so not familiar with the city. Booked a surprise trip for husband and want things to run smoothly.

Any help/ideas would be great. Thanks - Carole

The Tour de France will be in Lyon on 13 July. It doesn't reach Paris until 21 July, so that's not a worry for your arrival. Oh, hang on, by "July 13" do you mean July 2013? If so what days do you arrive/depart?

Rue La Boétie is about three-quarters of a mile long, so there are 3 Métro stations on it and two more on Champs Élysées near its western end. Assuming you are at the Champs Elysées end, you could take an RER (regional train network) train from CDG airport to Châtelet-Les Halles station and change there to Métro line 1, direction La Défense. Alight at Franklin D Roosevelt station and walk 400 metres to your hotel. Cost 9.50€ per person.

However, with luggage you might decide that it's worth paying 50 or 60€ for a taxi all the way from CDG. Just follow signs for Taxi and ignore anyone who offers you a cab before you line up in the queue at the taxi rank.

Thanks for this. I will look at your suggestions. Yes, sorry I should have been more specific. Arriving 20 July 13. Hotel is beside saint Phillipe metro I believe. Just a bit wary about hopping onto different trains, metros unless they are really straightforward. Thanks

Boabglasgow, for future reference, it's always best to start a new thread rather than reactivating an old thread with a similar headline. Easier to get an answer as othere may not see your question in the old thread.
