Montmartre Question

Quick question - what is the best way to get from CDG to Abesses Metro Station? That's the closest to out apartment rental, we will probably be arriving around noon (flight lands at 10:30), and we will have a toddler/compact stroller. So, I am trying to balance cost and how many trains we will have to take. Thanks!

By public transport, it is RER to Gare du Nord. A few miles of tunnels will take you to Metro line 2, direction Port Dauphine. Changing at Pigalle, you could change to line 12 for abesses.

Or you could take a taxi.

Seriously, considering that you will have your bags, a stroller, and a baby ... (and jet lag?) --- I would just suck it up and take a taxi.

Thanks! Ok, any ballpark on how bad the cab fare price will be? I have heard some outrageous stories....

Cab fare shouldn't be *too* expensive as Montmartre is in northern Paris, so coming from CDG you won't have to cross the city centre.

Alternatively, take the Roissybus from the airpot to Opera (every 15 mins, lots of luggage/stroller storage on the bus) and then take a cab back up to Abbesses - it's not very far.
