    If you are in Terminal 2F and want free wifi, go all the way to the leather seats by F30 and F31. This is above the Lounge and you can get on their wifi network. 6 hours of free time, per device!!!!

    WiFi works very well everywhere. Unpleasant smell in the building. Difficult to find a store for buying a SIM card at arrival gates. Direct bus drives you to city downtown for 17 EUR in about an hour.

    Huge airport!Terminal 2E is beautifully built with lots of shops. However if you have connection to 2G and have a non-EU passport brace for long checking at border control. Plan connections properly.

    Big airport but it's not really that complicated. Was my first time in Paris and travel alone. All went smooth from the immi queue till baggage claim. Wifi ok but need to keep on login after timeout

    Prepare to walk, this place is massive. Aircraft takes around 15 minutes from landing to parking. And its access roads, it's like a big city full of exits. Beautiful architecture!

    Huge airport. There's even a train to get you through terminals and parking lots. Free Wi-Fi. You can buy tourist tickets for the public transport, and travel safe on any train or bus. I like it.

    Expected more from an airport in a major city!15min wifi that barely connects.Slow &unclear! Take the RER SUBWAY it's much cheaper, gets u to center! Shocked at the amount of bad reviews that's true!

    Must visit: The Champs-Élysées is the most famous street—and one of the most expensive —in the world. Many French monuments like the Arc de Triomphe,the Place de la Concorde etc. lie on this street.

    Large disorganized airport - fly in on a 777 -disembark via stairs to bus ? Often striking workers leads delays at security or immigration or lost luggage - great physical plant/ amenities however !

    The Pompidou Centre has amazed visitors ever since it opened in 1977, not just for its outstanding collection of modern art – the largest in Europe – but also for its radical architectural statement.

    If you are taking the RER B into Paris, make sure you have a sim chip card or a lot of change to pay for the ~10 euro ride into the city. There are counters open, but may close in the early evening

    Notre Dame Cathedral is the most popular monument in France even beating out the Eiffel Tower. The interior is a majestic work of art with stained glass windows, portals depicting biblical scenes etc.

    Must explore: The Chateau de Versailles, one of the most beautiful examples of French 18th century art.Originally built by Louis XIII, it was brought up to it's present splendour by his son Louis XIV.

    If you want to go to shuttles for hotels, go to upstairs When you have the station behind you, take 1st escalator on the left and another one on the left and straight to the elevator to go to lev 5.

    My favourite international airport. Clean, easy to get around, quick security checks. There's also a shuttle now - nice. The AF lounges are comfy and well-stocked.

    This airport is by far one of the best one I ever went too. The wash area is clean & with cool designs. The structure is cool but its so big its so tiring to go on different platform hahaha...

    5:30am is when the tax refund office opens. Get there as early as possible as there may be line ups (tour groups) If you get there before 5:30am the automated scanners will APPEAR broken. Just wait.

    This huge french hub is not the best choice if you have a connection flight. Poor indications and long transfers do not help. Very good choice of shops and restaurants on the international concourse.

    Easy airport to get into, though I had a bit of time returning my Avis vehicle to Terminal 1, ended up driving around a couple of times. The people were nice and the process of boarding was a breeze.

    An improvement since last time I travelled through here... You must really look for the signs and the place can be very confusing. Oh and smile to the staff as much as possibly, it will help a lot ...

    My advice: Do NOT take the train (RER) but the bus. It's hassle free and will take you straight to the centre (Opera) for 10€. THE best option! And it's faster unless there is a big traffic

    You should prepare at least 3h beforeThe passport checks are a very long two lines.before you go down by escalator & the maze down stair.But you can ask to cut the line if your flight will leave soon

    Visit the transit information desk for assistance in getting to your hotel, and make sure to travel through one of the escalating tunnels that crosses the chasm in the middle of the airport.

    The Louvre is one of the world's largest museums & a historic monument. With more than 8 million visitors every year it is the world's most visited museum & one of Paris' primary tourist attraction.

    Quality duty free stores with everything you want to take home: wine, cheese, foie gras, macarons and chocolates. Unfriendly staff, confusing airport, be sure to check your terminal before going.

    Overall a fine Int'l Airport! If your flying Air France, the passenger lounge is terrific! There's a catch with this airport though, patience is a must as it is fairly inefficient and sometimes slow.

    The free water sources are all broken, with nearby shops selling tiny bottles for upwards of 2,60€. Bring an empty bottle and fill it on the bathroom. If you must buy water, the machines are cheaper.

    Of all the big airports, this is one of the worse in terms of the way it works for crowd control. It's always crowded with long lines in and out of customs. What a hassle. Please plan waaaaay ahead

    This airport perfectly personifies France. It was once beautiful and forward thinking but is now stuck in the past. In Germany, when connecting through FRA or MUC, no additional security required.

    Not the best airport in the world, but ok for shopping, ONLY if you are departing for a destination outside of EU. Be prepared to be bored if your onward flight is within EU, not much at those gates..

    Make sure to get your boarding pass before turning in tax free forms. You might get an angry woman who requires it. Just push your way through the lost people saying "pardon" and they will feel guilt.

    If you wanna eat... do it after you pass the immigration departing control.. between Gates L21 and L53 there is a great place to eat..less expensive than the restaurants at the check-in area...

    Best Kept (not so secret) Secret, is that on both sides(corners) of concourse 2E there are amazing lounge style couches with the best views of the tarmac. Great for airplane spotting.

    While CDG is light years ahead of my home airport, New York's JFK, it's nonetheless a sprawling, baffling, and inefficient mess for a major world city airport. Fly through Amsterdam.

    Most people are nice except the ones in the Information kiosks. Its quite confusing and hard to move in.Only the boarding gates are as pretty as we see on TV everything else is not really good looking

    CDG airport is a huge airport with 3 terminals. Depending where you are, it can be very nice and modern or pretty old. I would say it tends to improve with all the renovation work they did.

    Be sure to check the terminal from which your flight is departing. There are 3 of those and walk can be quite long between them. Free wi-fi available through all the airport.

    Buy stuff in the city. It is cheaper than duty free in most cases then charge it with your card. Head for the duty free booths (normally at the arrivals area before you drop your bags) to get a refund

    If you miss a flight (Air France) contact the customer desk. They gave an alternate flight to Basel although for next day and from Paris Orly. Vouchers for hotel, airport transfers & food included.

    I have a love-hate relationship with this place. The service is slow. Always very slow. That being said the food and shopping options in the terminals is good and in some instances even great!

    Be careful if you arrive to terminal E with less than 2 hours between connecting flights; shuttle bus is really slow. Me and other passengers missed our connection. Plus,the AF counter is always busy.

    Crowded and pretty old, airport is also really big, so get there with a serious gap before your flight, it may take some time to reach your terminal and gate. WiFi is free in some zones.

    One of the city's most notable curiosities, the Catacombes de Paris are underground ossuarys. The network of underground caverns and tunnels is a popular tourist attraction featured in many movies.

    If you're heading to Paris proper from CDG during morning rush-hour, save yourself the slow & expensive taxi ride and hop on the direct RER B to Chatelet-les-Halles (then switch from there to wherever

    If the air traffic control works as ground staff, I imagine it like "Oh, well, we did not expect you despite you come every evening, land on runway 1 or 2, just watch for other planes..."
