How to See Paris in a Day

If only time were endless, you could have up to a week to see Paris. To be honest, that is what it would take to experience all the grandeur of the City of Love and Light. But don’t worry, if you only have a day to see Paris, you can still relish in its rich and diverse history in a memorable 24 hours. 

Getting to the Center of Paris from the Airport 

You have several options to get to the center of Paris from Charles de Gaulle airport. The cheapest options are the bus or the RER train. These are good options if you travel with light luggage and have a bit of a time.

If you prefer something more comfortable, a taxi or a private transport service is your best option.

Accommodation in Paris

Paris is a well-connected city, so choosing an area to stay in is quite simple. The best way to decide depends on your travel goals. Like, for sightseeing, the 1st arrondissement of Paris, Paris’ first district, is the most recommended area.

However, if you are a lover of gastronomy, we recommend the 11th arrondissement of Paris. Then, if you want to experience nightlife or shopping, you should try Le Marais. On the other hand, if you are looking for more family-friendly fun, Saint-Germain is highly recommended. But, if you are traveling as a couple, Montmartre is very romantic.
