Reviews of Charles de Gaulle Airport • 7
Next morning, after a heavy breakfast, it was time to bid adieu to the beautiful city of Paris. We reached the airport by the Bus Shuttle. Alternatively, you can take a cab from the Hotel. It would approximately cost 50 Euros. We boarded our flight from Charles de Gaulle Airport to our next destination Venice - The City of Love.
On reaching Paris, we took the Bus from Airport (Ligne 2) to Paris Eiffel Tower. It costs 18 Euros per person if you take it directly from the airport while its a few euros cheaper if you book it online in advance.
And lets get a little specific and know what to eat when in Paris.But before that what is the French staple diet? And what other options does the French Capital offer to an Indian traveler?Paris is the place to have an affair with food. The French are famous for their gastronomy, no doubt, that it is rightly called the 'foodie wonderland'. It is always advisable to make memories relishing the local food.The flaky, fresh, buttery real French croissants, fresh, warm and out of the oven baguettes, and the French Pastries like Paris-Brest, millefeuille, and fruit tarts are some of the French foods to die for. Relish the Nutella Crepe as an afternoon snack or as a late night indulgence. And how can I forget to mention Jacques Genin Caramels and Macarons. But if you still prefer your own home country food, then head to the innumerable Indian eateries that are mushroomed around Paris.To relish the real flavors of the French Cuisine, one needs to stay with some lovely french family, and enjoy the home-made dinners, but not all tourists are lucky to experience such homely bliss and camaraderie. How wonderful it would be if you come back to your host after a day full of sight seeing and selfie sessions beside every monument of Paris, and you are treated to sumptuous dinners every night during your stay in Paris.But what if you are not so lucky? where do you end up eating? Here are some options for all of you out there, who are lovers of Indian food, if you are visiting Paris in the near future.
Leave early to the airport as roads going to shut down due to French National day parade.Bag was packed with pressure due heavy shopping done.Many offers are there in duty free shops too.An offer at a shop was stocked up by us only.An Chivas Regale 1.5 l for 35 euros & that's too 1 on 1 free.Tip-Spend the change on local soveniours if you don't want to keep them as soveniours.On flight got a mother daughter duo from Australia.Started conversation as watching same movie when most of crowd watching Pretty woman on flight. Avengers made the day as the talks are interesting.Things going smooth watching movie.Suddenly one from our group started shouting on hostess. Went there to see.He is veggie being served with Turkey.He wants to sue the airline. I went ahead & exchanged my food with his & make him quite.Things sorted out & i got busy tasting turkey for 1st time.Otherwise I have to taste this again.Taken a vodka & went to sleep.
10th July,2015Reached the Charles de gaulle airport of paris.Crowded but well managed airport. As its a 3 days holiday in paris the place is less crowded confirmed by travel guide.Catched the transport to hotel with picturesque city around.
The largest airport in France, Charles de Gaulle is home to the official French carrier Air France. From the moment you step into the main terminal, rows of high end luxury brands like Venessa Bruno, Cartier, Chanel, and Hermès usher you in. The airport offers some incredible deals on perfumes, cosmetics, and designer wear. We suggest you pick up French delicacies like foie gras, caviar and cheese as well. aeroportsdeparis.fr
Upon arriving in Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport, we went directly to the train station to catch the 10AM trip to Lorraine which lasted for an hour and 12 minutes, and from there, we took a 35-minute bus to Nancy. We passed through by fields of rapeseeds, communities with barely a person or two and lovely art nouveau homes (!!!!). Everything is so calm and foreign especially for someone like me who came from the busy Dubai.
