I will be staying near the Eiffel Tower on Avenue de Suffren. We are supposed to get from Charles de Gaulle to the VRBO residence and I am not sure how to navigate it. Can someone assist? Thank you!
The quickest route from CDG Airport to Paris Eiffel Tower area (Avenue de Suffren in this case) is taking RER B train to Paris until Saint Michel Notre Dame station, transferring (using same ticket) to RER C direction (any of the 3 below will work)
- Montigny Beauchamp, or
- Pontoise, or
until station Champ de Mars, Tour Eiffel from where you will walk about 5-10 minutes to get to Ave de Suffren. The RER C is rather complicated with many "directions" or terminus stations. You'll have to be vigilant with the signs (noting directions & terminus stations) pointing towards the platforms for the various directions and confirm your direction with overhead screens located at the train platforms.
Another option is to take the RER B until Denfert-Rochereau then transfer to Metro Line 6 direction Etoile until station Le Motte-Picquet Grenelle and walking to Ave de Suffren. This puts you in the middle of Avenue de Suffren as opposed to the very western end close to Eiffel Tower. This option is more straight forward, but about 10 minutes longer travel time. There will also be a few stairs to navigate at Denfert Rochereau station.
