Ah, le grand Paris (that’s “pah-ree” for those not in the know). It’s the stuff of poems, songs and film, but you don’t have to be Amelie to whisper “Paris, je t’aime”.
OK, enough movie name-dropping—it’s time to search cheap flights to Paris on Wotif and start practising your Jean Valjean impression. Some of the world’s most famous avenues, museums and cuisine are just a plane ride away.
Getting Around Paris
Many of Wotif’s flights to Paris land at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). Don’t worry about getting around; the city has excellent public transportation. You’ll take the RER line B train from the airport to the city centre, and from there you’ll use the Metro to get to all the top attractions. For a more leisurely tour, go like a true Parisian on two wheels. Bicycle rentals are a great way to see the smaller neighbourhoods and riverside paths.
When You Land…
Any time is a good time to arrive on Paris flights. In the morning, settle in with a cafe au lait along the Champs Elysees and indulge in France’s favourite pastime: people-watching! While away an afternoon at the Louvre or Musee d'Orsay. And in the evening, drop your bags at your accommodation in Paris and go see the Eiffel Tower’s spectacular nighttime light show.
Live Like a Local
“Flanerie” is French for “idle behaviour”, and there’s no better time to embrace it than your Paris holiday. Grab a baguette and cheese (lots of cheese) and picnic the day away on the banks of the Seine. Wander the narrow streets of Ile de la Cite in search of the best pain au chocolat—or the best glass of wine. We think you get the idea: Chill out!
Wotif can help you relax even before you set foot by the Seine. Check out our Paris packages and bundle your hotel and airfares to save the most dough. After all, the only dough you should be worrying about is the kind that’s baked into brioche…and boule…and crepes…le sigh.
