Use Paris Metro On Arrival Day?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to determine whether to take a taxi or the metro into central Paris.

My daughter and I will be arriving CDG at 8:30 in the morning. We will have one carry-on and one handbag each, and we are both fit.

I've read that many of the Paris metro stations have MANY steps! I have also read that it's good to try to avoid the metro during rush hour, so these are my questions:

1. Arriving at CDG at 8:30 am with no luggage to claim, how long should we allow to get through customs, purchase a carnet of metro tickets and get on the train? Will we be in rush hour, and if so should we avoid the metro since we will have luggage?

2. We are staying in the 6th. Closest metro station is St. Michel. Are there elevators at this station, and if not, how many flights of stairs to get to street level?

Thanking you in advance for the good advice I know I'll receive! =)
