Best route from CDG to Montmartre?

Hello,

Could someone suggest the best option from CDG to Paris if our hotel is next to the Anvers metro? We would like to take the RER or bus if possible. Last year we took the Roissy bus, which was perfect as our lodgings were near Opera, but I don't know whether Roissy would work this time...

Thanks!

I would take the RER to Gare du Nord, get in the taxi line just outside and make the rest of your journey that way.
I'm sure you have a Metro map to hand and will see there is a link to Anvers, but I wouldn't do it. How much luggage do you have? Unless it's just a teeny weeny hand held bag - no way!

If you're packing light, taking the metro after you get to Gare du Nord will work just fine. According to the RATP Journey Planner, the fastest route would be to take Metro line 4 one stop to Barbes Rochechouart and walk from there. For less walking, transfer to metro line 2 at Barbes Rochechouart and take it one stop to Anvers.

If you're packing light, just take the exit at the rear of the RER B at Gare du Nord, which connects to the La Chapelle metro station on line 2. Anvers is just two stops away.

I agree with both those, I guess -- you have to know how far you want to walk and shlep with your luggage. If you take a cab from Gare du Nord, I'd just take one from CDG anyway, doesn't seem like there is enough cost different to make all that trouble worthwhile (to me), especially since there are at least two of you apparently. If there are three of you, I really wouldn't take the RER, then taxi. I would also use the La Chapelle station on line 4, though, if I were going to do that.

I'll defer to Kerouac and Christina. Walking to La Chapelle and taking line 4 directly to Anvers is a better plan than the ones I gave.

Oops! I should have said take line 2 from La Chapelle to Anvers.
