Exiting Charles de Gaulle / Nearby restaurants or attractions

Jump to last reply

What is the "customs & immigration" process at Charles de Gaulle for people arriving from the USA that want to leave the airport? Is it like Amsterdam where it is a little stand with no line and you don't realize you are going through it (and only have to go through it if you leave the arrival/departure gate areas)? Or is it like the USA and other countries where you must fill out a form and get in a long line? My only previous time at the airport was for a connecting flight.

I will be connecting through there again soon, but this time with my 12 year-old son. We have a 4 hour lay over (8:30am to 12:30 pm on a Wednesday). Is it feasible to leave the airport and go quickly to a nearby restaurant or something he might enjoy? He is learning French in school so I thought it would be fun for him to get his passport stamped and at least eat some food at a non airport restaurant. We have another lay over on the way back from our trip that is shorter, so he can experience airport food then. haha.

I have no idea if there is anything close by that is worth going to, what the cost will be, and if time will allow for it.

Thanks for any suggestions, even if it is to say to bag the idea. I know that a 4 hour lay over is not the proper way to experience France, but that is all we have.
