Hey guys, going to be in Paris over break. Wondering a few things:

1. Where does Continental Arrive and Depart at CDG?

2. What is a cheap way to get from CDG to the city center? 1er Arondissement....

3. Finally, what is the best hotel for the price in the 1er Arondissement? (Musee du Louvre Area).

Thanks, and Merry Christmas.

Not sure about 1 or 3 (check a website like hotels.com or expedia or the such) but number 2 is definitely taking the RER, Paris' regional train system. The trains leave directly from either Terminal 1 or 2 and go straight to Gare du Nord (or is it Gare de Lyon?). From there a quick hop to the Métro and you can be in that area of town, and the trains run very frequently. Price is maybe a couple of Euro, but any other mode might be expensive. Roissy is located about 20 minutes from city centre Paris so a cab might be a bit expensive. Air France has buses which operate between Roissy and Place de la Concorde but I'm not sure about the price. Most of this info can be found online.

Continental currently arrives at Terminal A, but it will be changing to Terminal D once the Skyteam dealo commences. As far as cheap ways into Paris, the cheapest way is to take the Air France bus (8 euros), or spend a few Euros more and take the train from the Train station in the airport which is in Terminal 2C next to the Sheraton Hotel. I would recommend the train over the Bus, as it is only 2 euros more.

Damn you UAL!! That's what I wanted to do but the friggen sisters in my Family didn't have their passports, f_ck, Have a great time over there!! Hey there is a group of Airline pilots who have apartments for rent all over Paris, that they rent out for any amount of time, that's what I did when I was there in June, they are great. Do a search on the internet it should come up with something, in the mean time I can look and see where I stayed, it was inexpensive and it was close to the Tower. But they are all over Paris.

Taking the metro I would be cautious. I've gone to and fro from CDG using the metro, Air France bus, and by cab. With the metro, depending on where you go in Paris, you may have to go up and down a lot of stairs with no ramps or elevators. If you have heavy baggage I would recommend just taking a cab. With the Air France bus it will only drop you at certain locations and from there you will either have to walk, take the the metro, or a cab.

Cheapest way-Take the RER and transfer to the Metro, the vast majority of Paris Metro, especially in a major tourist area like Musee de Louvre will have escalators. Its just like taking the Subway to the airport from Manhattan, it can get exhausting, but it saves a lot of money.

Way that I would not recommend-Air France bus, tried it once with my family. Dropped us off "near" our hotel, needed to take a cab to the hotel for about 10 euros to avoid dragging our luggage several blocks. Its not worth the money when everything is added in.

Easiest way-Take a cab. You can soak in some nice scenery on your way into Paris and relax. I don't remember how much it cost when I took one to CDG from my hotel near La Defense, but I believe it is a flat rate.
