Flights between Rome, Paris, London- I have questions!

Right. So playing around with internal European flights from Rome to Paris. Does it make a difference who I should fly with: Vueling, Alitalia, or easy jet? Vueling is $55, the other two are around $90. Alitalia lands CDG, I think the other two are ORY. Know nothing about the airlines or the arrival airports (or I do, probably, but I've got so much in my head now it's all scrambled).

And would you fly from Paris to London or take the Eurostar? I'm thinking Eurostar might be more convenient. Anyone done both?


Thanks!

. . . And if you were headed to Bath - then flying into Bristol would be even better.

Yes, I think it will be center to center. Thanks, Janis.

If using the discount airlines be absolutely certain you know the airports they are using. Sometimes those airports are a long ways from the cities they claim. We like easyJet. Very similar to Swest in the US. But follow all the rules very carefully. The Eurostar is best for Paris to London. However buy the ticket as early as possible for best discount.

Fmpden- yes, I figured that. My question is: is it better to fly into CDG or ORY? They all seem to leave Rome from FCO.

I have flown Veuling between FCO and both ORY and CDG. ORY is a smaller airport so easier to navigate. Depending upon where you are staying in Paris, it might make more sense to fly into one or the other.

A taxi from ORY into Paris is cheaper than from CDG. RER is even cheaper yet but I believe that is a better option from CDG.

I wrote a post comparing the 3 airports of Paris. It is on air travel forum. Or click on my name.

Thanks for the reminder, Wo! I had seen that earlier but could not find it when I was looking for it as I did not remember it was you (and for some reason, I thought it was in the Europe forum). Very helpful post, and I'm so excited that I get to see Paris after all
