    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!!!!

    Plane spotting is limited. Serious photographers interested in exploring the airport grounds must apply for permission at the police préfecture in advance.

    Great airport, you got everything you need food, pharmacy, cafes & hotels. The airport is connected to the metro, makes it easy to go to Paris. Plus the TGV train station.

    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

    Welcome to Paris! If you’re fond of gothic architecture, be sure to check out Notre-Dame de Paris. The renowned structure is distinguished for its size and antiquity.

    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!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    If you are coming from somewhere else, take the metro to Paris. It is fairly quick, and you can even grab a baguette and eat it at the louvre.

    Eiffel Tower: No one could imagine Paris today without it. This elegant, 320m tall signature spire is known for the spectacular view it offers of the city. Lifts ascend to the tower’s three levels.

    Know that it might take up to 1 hour just to get through the passport control. You can't imagine the line for "tax refund". Ask for "credit card reimbursement", much easier. VIP ticket 7EUR.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Free WiFi is a plus. Nothing else can be of any importance to mention but I can add my bad experience with Air France and their delays that caused us to spend a dreadful night in the airport.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    If it's early enough in the morning or late enough at night, you might find this airport is not too bad. Then again, you have a red-eye ahead of you, so it's a trade-off.
