20 hours at CDG... what to do?

Jump to last reply

I just managed to get a pair of saver level seats on Delta/AirFrance from Newark to Rabat, Morocco for next fall (60,000 SkyPesos + ~$100 taxes/fees each).

The only issue: a 20 hours layover at CDG on the return. The flight arrives around 5pm and departs at 1:30pm the next day.

My wife and I have both been to Paris before and seen most of the major sites (never been to Sacré-Cœur). We're looking for ideas of how to spend the time.

Options I've come up with so far:

1) Get a room at one of the hotels at the airport and just relax. Don't really do anything.
2) Get a room in Paris. Take cab/bus into the city. Have a nice dinner, sight see for a few hours in the morning and then back to the airport.
3) Get a room somewhere outside the city, maybe a small town not too far from the airport. Have a nice dinner, wander the streets, and back to the airport.

Open to suggestions... I have points with Hilton/Hyatt/Starwood, so can probably come up with a free room in most areas.

Thanks in advance!
