Tips and tricks to help you find cheap flights from Los Angeles to Paris
Useful information about the flight from Los Angeles to Paris
Paris, the capital of France, is a bustling and metropolitan city, and the very model of a modern capital city.
Paris is a joy to visit at any time of year, as the weather tends to be rather cold in winter with warmer summers. During the summer is when the city celebrates the most, with music festivals throughout June and July, the annual Tour de France cycling competition, and of course - Bastille day, celebrating the anniversary of the French Revolution and held on July 14th every year.
Before you go...
You should try to pick up a little French before you leave, or invest in a good phrasebook, as many French people only speak very little English.
There are plenty of options when traveling in and around the city, with the metro, overground trains (RER), buses and trams. Cabs are an option for those with a little more cash, as are hire cars. Be aware however that traffic jams are common so make sure to leave plenty of time if using a car.
Travel to the city itself is simple enough, with trains running from Charles de Gaulle airport to Paris-Chatelet les Halles every thirty minutes and costing about ten Euros. Cabs are also available, for around sixty euros for a single trip. From Beauvais, there is a shuttle service to Porte Maillot, costing around 15 euros for a 1 hour 15 minutes trip; cabs are also available, but as the airport is around 80 km from the city, they run expensive. From Paris-Le Bourget, a bus is available to La Courneuve Station, and from there travelers can catch either a bus or a tram Gare de l'Est, Gare du Nord or Porte de la Chapelle.
For those staying overnight, typical Parisian hotels are small Boutique Hotels, with prices starting at around 100 euros a night. There are places for all budgets though, right from cheap hostels for backpackers to the glitz and glamour of luxury hotels.
