Parking outside of Paris

Jump to last reply

We live in Germany and are planning a weekend trip to Paris in April. Since its only a 4 hour drive, it is much cheaper for our family of 7 to take our car than it would be to take the train. The problem is that I like my car, and it isn't exactly small, so I'm very reluctant to take it into the city.

So here's my question: Would it be better to park outside the city at an RER station and then take the train in? Are there even parking lots or garages available? Or how about parking at the CDG airport?

I don't even know if my ideas make any practical sense, so I'm also open to any other ideas or solutions. Thanks!
