Paris Guide


Public Transport and How to Get Around

If you’re still in the planning stages of your Parisian holiday, you may be wondering how simple (or confusing) it is to get around the city. When searching flights Sydney to Paris, you’ll discover there is a lot to see and do over the vast city. Travelling to and from your desired attraction can be a little easier if you know the basics of Paris’ layout and transit options. If you’ve travelled on Sydney to Paris flights, you may already know Paris is broken into 20 different arrondissements (or Paris Districts). The first arrondissement starts in the centre of the city and pinwheels out in a clockwise rotation. Notre Dame, for example, is located in Paris 1 (the 1st arrondissement), but if you want to visit the Eiffel Tower, you’ll need to go to Paris 7 (the 7th arrondissement). The River Seine runs through the heart of the city. Those who’ve organised flights Sydney to Paris in the past may have heard locals referencing the ‘Left Bank’ and ‘Right Bank’ when giving directions or describing an area. The Right Bank refers to the area to the north of the Seine while the Left Bank refers to the area to the south of the river. Most of Paris sits on the Right Bank leaving only six arrondissements (Paris 5,6,7,13,14, and 15) on the Left Bank. Once you have a better understanding of where you need to go, you can easily navigate your way through the city. Walking is the ideal way to see the sights and get from place to place, but in a city as large as Paris, public transportation will come in handy. Taxis, city buses, and the metro can be found at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) as well as throughout the city. River boats, tour buses, and even electric bicycles are readily available and most drivers speak English.

Major Events and Festivals

Heading to France to witness or participate in the array of events and festivals can be the highlight for anyone on flights Sydney to Paris. You’ll need to book Sydney to Paris return tickets well in advance if you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of the latest styles during the iconic Fashion Week. Take in the grandeur of the finest horses in the world as you watch The Grand Prix d’Amérique harness race live at the Hippodrome de Vincennes. It may be hard to find cheap flights Sydney to Paris if you don’t plan well in advance. But watching the top 18 riders compete for the title will be an experience you’ll never forget. Look for flights Sydney to Paris for travel in late May and early June to be in the grandstands of the French Open. If you can’t snag tickets to the tournament in the famous Roland Garros stadium, head to the lively bistros nearby and celebrate like a local. July is perhaps the best time to travel to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). Not only will the city be gearing up for the fireworks and entertainment events for Bastille Day, you may also catch a glimpse of some of the famous riders preparing for the Tour de France. Take a break from the warm spring days and plan your Sydney to Paris flights in September to enjoy the Autumn Festival in Paris. Tourists and locals can witness a collection of theatre, music, dance, film, and visual arts at more than 40 locations throughout the city. To see the best window displays, street décor, and festive lights, plan your Sydney to Paris return flights for the Christmas holiday.

Tips for First-Time Travellers to Paris

Planning flights Sydney to Paris for the first time can be exciting. But knowing what to do, how to dress, what to say, and what to see first, can be a bit overwhelming. If you’re booking Sydney to Paris flights for a long holiday, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with a few basic French terms. Of course, there are the basics such as ‘good day’ (bonjour), ‘good bye’ (au revoir) ‘please’ (s’il vous plait) and ‘thank you’ (merci). But other terms such as ‘Do you speak English?’ (parlez-vous anglais?) and ‘I don’t understand’ (Je ne comprends pas) may come in handy. If you do nothing else with your flights Sydney to Paris, leave plenty of time in your schedule to sit down and enjoy at least one meal in a truly French restaurant. You’ll find eating in Paris is an experience, not a chore, and is never hurried. If you want a glass of water, be sure to ask for tap water when ordering. Otherwise you’ll be charged for fancy bottled water that may just break the bank. You’ll also want to plan your weekends carefully when booking cheap flights to Paris from Sydney. Nearly every grocery store, pharmacy, restaurant, and boutique is closed on Sundays. Some are even closed all weekend. This is not an uncommon practice for the French as they hold to the traditional value that weekends are for family time. It will also be helpful to check out the hours of operation for major attractions before finalising your tickets to Paris from Sydney. Knowing the Musée d’Orsay is closed on Mondays and The Louvre is closed on Tuesdays will certainly go a long way in creating the best Parisian holiday experience.
