Hop on one of the cheapest lastminute.co.nz Paris flights, and your budget for chocolate crepes and macarons will still be intact. Yummm…macarons. BRB, just popping out to the bakery.
Flights to Paris land at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), one of the largest airports in the world. Not that size matters. Ahem. You can travel the 35km to the centre of Paris by shuttle, train, bus or taxi. Once you’re settled into your room, get around Paris via metro, taxi or bike.
Put down your bags at an accommodation in Paris and then put your GPS to work (though we have to admit, Paris is one of the best cities to get lost in).

Once you’ve taken your picture in front of the Arc de Triomphe and seen the Mona Lisa, get off the beaten path for a minute. Cheap flights to Paris leave you with plenty of cash to burn, after all. Go on a “Sewers of Paris Tour” (really) or visit the French Statue of Liberty along the Seine.
