8:00 in the morning in Paris and nowhere to go

Jump to last reply

Hello all - I'm looking for some creative ideas and I am betting that you Fodorites will have some.

Here's the story - my flight time was changed and now my sister and I will be landing in Paris at 6:45 am on a Saturday morning. Assuming we land on time, I'm estimating that puts me into the city at around 8:00 am. Of course, we can't get into our apartment until later in the day (I'm guessing at least not until after noon). So...what to do?

Right now, I am thinking of hanging out at the airport for awhile as it would be less awkward hauling our suitcases around CDG than it would be hauling them through the streets of Paris (we could have petit déjeuner at McDo's, what better way to start our trip?). I tried to book the apartment for the previous day so that we COULD get in early, but the apartment was not free.

Ugh. Any other ideas? We're staying right off rue Cler (rue de Grenelle) so I know we could maybe park ourselves at a café on rue Cler for awhile, but for 4 hours? I would guess no.

Any suggestions would be most welcome, and thank you all in advance.

Debra
