Getting around Paris and France

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are flying into Charles de Gaulle airport very soon. We are both EXTREMELY inexperienced, don't speak or understand anything but English, and have very limited experience using public transportation. We are traveling with one carry-on bag each because it's my husband's dream to be very mobile and use the Metro system to get around everywhere. His primary interest is to explore non-tourist types of food places and eat local fare. We have our 1st 2 nights booked, and plan to book the rest as we wander around.

First huge challenge is trying to figure out if it's SIMPLE to get from the airport to our hotel at 1, Rue de Lisbonne, Rosny-sous-Bois by public transportation. I've spent hours trying to figure this out. It talks about walking but doesn't show me where I need to walk and I'm very nervous I won't be able to find the next connection place because I can't speak the language. If it's not practical, does anyone know how much a taxi will cost? We will appreciate any advice (other than saying "stay home") or help so VERY much! Thank you.
