Arriving into Paris beauvias airport would taxi be cheap?

Need some advice on getting into the city from Beauvias airport Paris and will be staying very near the Eiffel tower. Would anyone know whats the best way to get into the city. We are travelling as a family 3 adults , one 3yr old and an infant. Need to know how much would the taxi's cost or public transport if its much cheaper. And would it be safe?

Beauvais (note the correct spelling) airport is a looong way out of Paris (over 50 miles away), hence its popularity with budget airlines. A taxi from there to central Paris would be very expensive indeed. I believe there is some sort of bus which - given the distance - will take something like 1.25 hours. Not sure what you mean by "safe" but France is a generally very safe destination to visit.

Never been to Beauvais Airport. Here's some links to transport.

Apparently you can taxi from airport to Beauvais city center, then catch a train to paris from there, ending at Gare du Nord. Transfer at GdN to Metro to get to ET. Cab around 15E, train 11E pp.

You don't have to take a taxi out of the Beauvais airport to catch a shuttle.

A taxi would cost a fortune.

No idea what your safety concerns are. People fly into airports in France and take shuttles all the time. There are no riots or wars going on that I'm aware of.

While I consider it a real stretch to call Beauvais a Paris airport, there is bus service for about 15€ which will take you to Porte Maillot from where you could easily catch a taxi to your hotel.

Sarastro has the perfect website. My daughter who lives in Stockholm flies on Ryan Air and takes this shuttle from Beauvais Airport to Porte Maillot. The ride takes approximately 1 hour 15 minutes. You can metro or taxi it from there to your place near the ET. It is very safe.

15 euro/person and free for children under 2 years. Enjoy your ride!
